HTC Sensation, Sensation XE and Vivid Get ICS Kernel Source Published

Developers, rejoice! HTC has released the Ice Cream Sandwich kernel source for a few of their phones. The HTC Sensation, HTC Sensation XE, and the HTC Vivid are all getting treatment today. Kernel source code helps developers make custom ROMs and you can bet developers will be hard at work whipping up some Ice Cream flavored goods before too long. If you fit the bill of the type of person who will need these files, get to HTCDev.com for the downloads. [via Android Police]

    Ugh, still no love for Mytouch 4G Slide. :( Should I not have bought this phone?

    • TeflonDon45

      No

      It’ll happen eventually.  The 3G and 3G Slide both got Froyo, if a bit late.

      The MyTouch line so far is good for getting updates *eventually*, but not *rapidly*.

    Yeah, where is the mt4gs love?

  • REVS

  • Undeadk9

    +1 HTC.  I have a GNex, but I see the effort… I’m encouraged.

    Excellant, been waiting for the devs to get hold of this. Been using customs on my Sensation for a few months, but they’re really been struggling with several drivers (the usual BT, camera…).

    Nice going HTC, you’re gettting quicker with these things, but please get quicker still!

    AWESOME! ARHD 6.5.1 is already awesome right now, I can’t even imagine how stable it’s going to be the next go. Also, this should help a lot of devs building AOSP for the Sensation. Right now bluetooth and animations are broken. Cheers HTC! That’s why you’s muh fave-rit :D
