Default SGH-M919N_TMB_JB_Opensource

Sooo, I went to Samsung OSRC, searched for our device (M919N) and this popped up...

SGH-M919N_TMB_JB_Opensource.zip

Looks to me to be the 4.2.2 source for our phone.
Now that we have it, what do we do with it?

My friend ARocker. I have that file since August, at that time I sent a PM to Shabby and Nuttmeg telling them about it but nothing went out. I know there is the kernel source but because I'm not a dev I can't do anything with it. Maybe you can do something.

Lol. You are not late. Four months in my PC wasting HD space is worst!!! My first thought when I saw the file for the first time was that Samsung were going to release the stock SGH-M919N firmware soon. Lol.... four months and NOTHING!!!

its teh kernel source, you can use it to compile kernels. i was pretty sure i mentioned that in a reply to you, if i didnt my apologies.

im sure most people are just flashing tmobile kernels, anyone looking to learn kernel development would be better off starting there as well seeing as there are many more kernel devs with all the work they have done on the tmo s4 vs no one has metro's source up on github and done anything with it.

there is usually platform source as well, its fairly useless though. its the GPL required parts of android samsung uses and alters. sometimes its used with cyanogenmod to get aosp booting, but you guys already have all that
