Moto G6 Play kernel source code released

Motorola Moto G6 Play

The Motorola Moto G6 Play was launched by the company in the later half of this month, and it’s not yet available in most markets around the world. However, that’s not stopping the company from releasing its kernel source code.

The kernel source code for the G6 Play has been uploaded to GitHub, under the device names “aljeter” and “jeter.” If you’re not familiar with this process, the code allows developers to create custom ROMs and recoveries more easily. Hopefully Motorola will release the kernel source for its other new phones soon.
