OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro: download kernel source code Android Blog Italy.

OnePlus has officially released the source code for the kernel of the new top of the range (compatible with Google Staff) OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro, allowing everyone to download it.

Have you ever wondered why every smartphone has a different version, despite Android, at its heart, is based on the Linux kernel? Like all Android devices, OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro will work on a Linux kernel modified.

Google takes a major version of the Linux kernel, and then the change to support the latest version of Android, calling it a “common kernel, Android“. Chipset manufacturers, therefore, take the common kernel, Android and modify it further to create a specific kernel for their Socs. The OEM, therefore, take the specific kernel of the SoC and make additional changes to support their hardware, or the components of the supplier extra: this is a kernel specific to the device.

The first step to bring a smartphone inside the world of modding is, without a doubt, the release of the source code of the kernel. In fact, it is the main piece to better optimize the ROM, and the various customizations with the hardware.

The release for OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro is a great news also because the smartphone has been equipped, from the factory, of Android 10. This means that you can count on the Project Treble, commissioned by Google to simplify the release of updates and, in an indirect way, to make it much more easy the development of Custom ROMS.

From the point of view of the users, the source code of the kernel does not have any direct utility, since they can't be used if not as described above.

At this point you need to wait for the team at TWRP releases its own version of the Custom Recovery in order to have all the pieces necessary to delve into the world of modding.
