Motorola releases Moto X kernel source code

Motorola releases Moto X kernel source code
The Motorola Moto X has been available through AT&T for about 5 days now, and it is expected to be made available tomorrow for online orders through Verizon. There is no word on release dates for other carriers, but Motorola has jumped the gun on those other releases and has posted the kernel source code for the AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint variants of the Moto X.

To be clear, this is not the full source code post including the binaries that would be necessary for creating a custom ROM for the Moto X. This is just the kernel source code, but that does still have some very nice uses for those who like to mod their devices. This code can be used to create custom kernels, which could be used to overclock your Moto X, or boost power efficiency. 

If you have the coding skills to create some custom kernels from the code, you can grab the files for each of the models at the source:

Locked bootloader = non-starter.
