Default Build From Source


I'm relatively new to Android development, though not to programming in general. I'm curious if there is a way to build the Sprint Note 3 from source. I saw the official Samsung source, but so far I've been unable to find a Git repository. Am I out of luck? How have others built ROMs if the AOSP source is hidden or unreleased?

Samsung only releases enough source to be gpl compliant. .. the kernel is mostly it . They don't release full source because a lot of the rom is proprietary software .... they copyright a lot of it

Every company does the same lg won't release source for knock code etc htc doesn't release sense code etc
