released the source code for the Galaxy S II, opening the door for developers to craft more complex apps and modify Samsung's customized Android 2.3.3 build. The GT-I9100 open-source repo will allow for ROMs that further overclock the GSII's 1.2GHz processor, among other things. Samsung has been criticized in the past for its attitude toward updates for its existing Android phones While this isn't necessarily a sign that the firm is upping its game overall, it's a welcome release.

released the source code for the Advent Vega tablet, as promised late last year. The code is for the latest official firmware release, v1.08, which was distributed for the tablet earlier this week.
