If you’ve managed to stretch your hands around a Galaxy Note II smartphone already, but were hoping to get a custom ROM on it, there’s good news: Samsung has just released the source code. It’s now been posted for the international GT-N7100 model, giving developers a peek at the 5.5-incher’s inner workings and allowing them to get to work on new mods. The company has been faithfully posting its Android code for handsets like the Galaxy S III shortly after they’ve gone on sale, letting developers like CyanogenMod release custom ROMs scant weeks afterward. So, if you get tired of TouchWiz or want root control of the pen-enabled behemoth, you can be sure someone’s on the job right now.
