I do not know why and how I decided to look into the andorid kernel, and so here are some details, about my findings of the android kernel.

The kernel tree can be found at—>http://android.git.kernel.org/

However, to download the kernel you’ll need a git client and cygwin installed onto your system,

You download git from here,


Cygwin can be found at,


Word of caution,

You can’t use git alone, you’ll have do download and install cygwin first.

Once cygwin is installed and running type the following command onto the bash(You can also do the same onto the git bash,once you are done with installing cygwin)

git clone git://android.git.kernel.org/kernel/common.git

The download will start and you should see something as seen in the right bash prompt window above.
