HTC published Android 7.0 Nougat kernel source code for the HTC 10 at the tail end of last year. It was only available for the unlocked version at the time, but now the company has updated the page with the code for the T-Mobile, Telstra, and Verizon versions of the phone, too. Furthermore, the HTC One A9 has had its code published for the first time, with a great deal more variants available.
As well as the general unlocked version of the One A9, you can get the source code for the Telstra and EE carrier versions, plus country specific versions including those for China and India. HTC is often quick to release the source code for its devices, with the HTC 11 going up shortly after release, so it’s actually a little surprising that it’s taken this long for the One A9.
This news won’t be of interest to most people, as the kernel source code is generally used by developers who use it to build custom ROMs and mods. If that’s you, the code for the HTC 10 and One A9 is ready to go, plus you’ll also find builds for the Desire 10 and HTC 11 there, too.
