But the kernel at the heart of Android is GPL'd, which means that code must be released. Google has actually been a good citizen in this regard — but many third-party Android vendors, not so much. While Asus has released their code, there are a host of comanies that seem to have not done so, and Matthew Garrett is maintaining a list."
