Nokia 8 and Razer Phone Kernel Source Codes Released

by Habeeb Onawole 0

Lately, HMD Global has been releasing the source codes for its Android phones. Just a few weeks ago, it released the kernel source codes for the first-gen Nokia 6 and the Android Go Nokia 1. They have now been joined by the Nokia 8 flagship.

The released kernel source code will allow developers create custom ROMs for the Nokia 8. The kernel source code is available for download here and is less than 200MB in size.

There are still six more Nokia devices from HMD Global whose source codes have not been released.

Razer has also released the source code based on Android 8.1 Oreo for the Razer Phone. This is impressive as it is coming just a week after the device was officially updated to Android 8.1 Oreo. Back in December, it released the source code based on Android Nougat.

The gaming hardware manufacturer has also released the factory image for the update. While most people should have already gotten the OTA, those who haven’t can proceed to download the factory image and install on their device. However, you have to unlock your bootloader before you can do so.

Razer warns that when flashing the factory image, owners should not use the cable that ships with the phone as it doesn’t support data transfer.
