 Linux Kernel 3.10 Adds big.LITTLE Support, Opening Door For CyanogenMod On Exynos Phones

Linux godfather Linus Torvalds has certified that the official Linux kernel 3.10 is now in its final state; and, as far as our audience is concerned, the big addition to the Linux kernel is with enhanced ARM processor support. Specifically, the Linux kernel 3.10 has added support for big.LITTLE processors, which should help developers port Ubuntu Touch to the Samsung Galaxy S4 and other devices.

Ubuntu 13.10 has been planned to run on the Linux kernel 3.10, and Ubuntu 13.10 is going to be the version number of the first set of Ubuntu Touch phones. This means that as soon as the final build of the 3.10 Linux kernel is folded into the Ubuntu dailies, work will be able to begin on finally bringing support for Ubuntu Touch to the international Samsung Galaxy S4, which runs on the Samsung Exynos Octa 5. As yet there hadn't been any work to bring Ubuntu Touch to Samsung's new flagship, because right now the daily builds of Ubuntu Touch are based on Ubuntu 13.04.

The addition of big.LITTLE support could also make it easier for future Android devices and even Chrome OS devices to run on big.LITTLE processors, because Android manufacturers won't have to build in support for the processors.
Linux kernel 3.10 gets big.LITTLE support, should help Ubuntu come to the Galaxy S4

this is 3.10.... 9 is before 10 scoop lol.
this is coming from linus himself, its official.
when i read this earlier i thought they were updating the 3.1 kernel.
i didnt realize it was 3.10 until i just reread it.
thats why i didnt post this.
idk why they would add support for this anyway seeing as though samsung isnt even using their exynos processor in their future devices at this point.
both the s4 advanced and note 3 are gonna have the SD 800.

I never understood .10 versions; Once it gets to .9 the next update should be the next integer

Making stuff up are we?

Samsung still hasn't sorted out the reproduction issues with their chips. Why would they not use their own supply, in the future, once they're able to meet demand?

i said AT THIS POINT.
the s4 advanced is confirmed to have the 800 soc.
the note 3 is rumored to have it.
2 of the tab 3's have a dual core exynos and the other has an intel.
i agree, why wouldnt they? what is the problem? why arent they using it for them devices?
i just know AT THIS POINT theyre not.

You just named two new Samsung devices that use the Exynos chip then proceed to say Samsung isn't using the Exynos chip.

You said they weren't using the Exynos chip anymore. Those dual core chips are still Exynos chips, dumb b*tch.
