The devs accused OnePlus of postponing the launch of the kernel resource code of the Nougat upgrade for the OnePlus 3 and 3T and, in general, of playing fast and loose with its open-source responsibilities birthed by the use of Android.

There was likewise some supposition that OnePlus delayed the release of the source code to hide using a debug kernel, though the firm fasted to shut down the reports.

Now OnePlus made available the Nougat kernel source on its Github repository, which ought to please designers, along with users waiting on boosted personalized ROMs for their OnePlus 3 as well as OnePlus 3T tools.

Thanks to the GNU General Public Permit (GPL) licensing of the Linux kernel (which creates the base of Android), all firms that make use of Android have the commitment to release the code of their bits on the day of the release. Some companies conform or perhaps go beyond their responsibilities in an initiative to simplify the job of the programmer neighborhood. At the other end of the spectrum, firms like Xiaomi take numerous months to launch source code, if they also trouble to launch them in any way. OnePlus is not, by any means, the worst offender in this regard.
