Great news, I hope Team Hacksung will be able to fix the non-working Stuff using those sources. Video Recording, GPS half-working etc. are still too many show stoppers for daily usage in my eyes.

my understanding is all they were waiting on was for the source to drop and it's doable!

Same here. Brazil, ZTA... not even an announcement for a far away release of ICS.

I hope Samsung hasn't hidden any secrets away from the released source code (like code to very specific drivers). If they have, having the sources won't suffice for a properly working ICS Galaxy S 2.

on the other hand, this may be an indication that Samsung hasn't been able to correct bugs still present in their pseudo-official ICS release, and this is their last resort: release the code so that the developers community can fix bugs Samsung hasn't be able to fix. Not that Samsung didn't have to make such release - they should and it is high time they do so.
If you like my post, don't forget to Thank it.

We know for a fact that there are bugs that Samsung is too clueless to notice/fix... But they are also too clueless to pull the fixes from the community.

See the fuel_alerted wakelock bug for example... Fixed for around 6 months by the community, still broken in Samsung kernels.
*so much sig updating needed*

An excellent post on "noobs vs. developers"

A few opinions on kernel development "good practices"
