They are obliged to do it. There is kernel source for X, but not for XL. We'll see...

From the official FAQ: Acquiring Nokia X kernel source

Q: How do I request the kernel source for the Nokia X Firmware?
A: Microsoft Mobile offers to provide you with the source code for these files. Please send a written request, along with the relevant details (software name and version), to:
Source Code Requests
Microsoft Mobile Oy
Keilalahdentie 2-4
02150 Espoo
Finland
This offer is valid for a period of three (3) years from the date of the distribution of this product by Microsoft Mobile Oy.



I have requested the X2 source and will upload to Github when get the DVD. Alas, as I work in the Nokia X2 kernel team (at least for a short while), I could pull this directly from internal repository, but as I'm afraid of our Legal Dept, decided to submit a formal request just like everyone else.

It is too bad that world never sees the plethora of upcoming Nokia X models that were cancelled July 17th and were planned as successors to Nokia X2. There was some really cool technology there, also in the Linux kernel code.
