Kernel & Hardware¶
Mainline Kernel (4.13rc4 as of writing)¶
There is no device tree source (dts) file in the mainline kernel, neither for the device itself nor for the underlying SoC (MSM8992). The general support for Nexus 5X and Nexus 6 landed with 4.10, according to a Phoronix article about Kernel 4.10 ARM support. There is also a short slideshow by Jeremy McNicoll about the initial and ongoing mainlining process.
LOS 14.1 Android Kernel (3.10.73)¶
Unclear whether security bug fixes are implemented into this kernel (long term 3.10 kernel @ kernel.org has version 3.10.107).
