Moto G (Gen 2) and Moto X (Gen 2) Kernel Source Codes Now Available

Motorola over the weekend published the Android 4.4.4 KitKat kernel source codes for the Moto G (Gen 2) and Moto X (Gen 2) on GitHub.

The first announcement about the publishing of the kernel source codes came via a Motorola employee named 'tags07' as a comment on a section of MSM Kernel a week ago, stating "fyi.. We just posted Moto X Gen2 kernel sources: Branch: kitkat-4.4.4-release-victara; TAG: MMI-KXE21.187-47. Moto G Gen2 is next..".

As mentioned above, the initial kernel source code for Motorola Moto X (Gen 2) is codenamed 'Victara', while the Moto G (Gen 2)'s kernel source code is dubbed 'Titan'.

The kernel source codes for the Moto X (Gen 2) and Moto G (Gen 2) are available to download as a standard browsable GitHub in the form of zip or tar files, as noted by Android Police.

Motorola announced the Moto X (Gen 2) and Moto G (Gen 2) in September this year. Both phones are powered by Android 4.4.4 KitKat, and the company has confirmed it will roll out an Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the two devices.

The Lenovo-owned company will have to publish new kernel source codes once it rolls out the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the two phones.

In September, Google released Android 4.4.4 KitKat kernel source code for the Android One smartphones in India. The source codes notably came with a fix for a minor gyroscope bug.
