Kernel Source Codes for Moto X(2014) and Moto G(2014) got released

Many of you might not have heard of the word ‘Kernel’. So if you’re one among them then let me tell you that a Kernel is a Linux-based baseline software that runs underneath Android, which allows it to interact with mobile phone or tablet hardware. And as Android uses an open source software so developers need to publish the source code publicly for everyone so as to inspect and modify if they want to.


Now coming to the good news, Motorola has published the Android 4.4.4 KitKat build Kernel Source Code for Moto X(2014) and Moto(2014). Those can be found on Motorola’s development GitHub. The initial  kernels for the Moto X (2014) has been codenamed “Victara” and for  the Moto G (2014), it has been codenamed “Titan”. So this also means that we can see new ROMS for these new devices in coming days.

The kernel source code is available through Motorola‘s developer GitHub, completely browsable, and can be downloaded as a single compressed archive. The links have been mentioned in the source website.

Lenovo’s Motorola acquisitation is now complete. Motorola also promises Android Lollipop update for Moto Series smartphones.
