Samsung unleashes the Galaxy Note II source code, let the modding begin
If you are the tweaking type, you'd love to hear that Samsung just let the Galaxy Note II kernel source code in the wild for some fresh air, ready to be kidnapped by the ROM hackers lurking around the XDA-Devs forums.

The source code dump will ease the process of creating custom ROMs for the device, which is pretty good as it is, running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box, and having plenty of novel features, like the multi-window mode.

All right, CyanogenMod crew, did you hear the news? Now do your magic and give us an even more awesome Galaxy Note II, the way only you are capable of optimizing!

Ok that is great but what about support for the quad-core Exynos 4? A lot of developers wont work on the Note II because Samsung is not supporting their Exynos 4. Please Samsung show some support for your Exynos 4 so I can be 1000% sure & happy if I decide to buy your SUPER SEXY Galaxy Note II.

That is all I need. Please support your Exynos 4 & I am all over you again if not LG Optimus G Nexus here I come! lol

generally that kind of stuff is included in the full source code. We'll have to wait a min to find out for sure though. Look for camera issues and such.

Well remixfa, until I get some sort of confirmation I am still nervous. This is actually a pleasant surprise because of the news from the other day. I REALLY WANT that MAMMOTH SCREEN. 5.5" is just so freaking BOSS!

Please let's hope this is actually the first step in total Samsung developer support for the insanely AWESOME Samsung Galaxy Note II.

My fingers are crossed.

YOU ARE RIGHT..CODEWORKX who is an elite recognized developer has stopped working on the cm10 or sgs3.
There are no or outdated documents provided by Samsung for their exynos..
Samsung is becoming thew new HTC (I'm no sammy hater but just a mod-lover)

Let's hope Samsung changes their mind because right now this will keep me from getting the Samsung Galaxy Note II.

sadly, CyanogenMod team will never be able to get Butter(cm10, JB) on note 2 because of poor exynos documentations.. :-(
