will there ever be a day when phone makers disable rooting alltogether? by disabling i mean bricking our phones if we do hack them and usinf tactics like that.
Why would they care? I mean, ok, say so and so roots his/her phone and overclocks and fries his/her processor - I could see how that would cost Verizon a lot of money because I'm sure there there are people that do that but... still, rooting has made my droid 10x better. I couldn't be happier with it.
if it can be thought of: someone has already done it. if it can be created: it can be modified. look at it in this context- one crack house gets brought down, another one down the street opens. once a soup can has been opened, you cant close it, you can hold the lid closed, but the soup still keeps coming out.....................cheese's philosophy for the day-
I touched Lord Stanley's Cup on 1/2/11.
My friend has a g1 and was having trouble in general, running slow. He called a t-mobile tech and he helped out but what was interesting is the tech told my friend to download "cachecleaner" to help keep his phone fresh but you have to have root access to use it. So apparently the techs are rooting too.
Man the tech industry has spent hundreds of billions of dollars over 50-60 years and have never came up with a way of preventing hackers from exploiting a system... Shoot the US Military couldn't even prevent the Predator Drone plane from being hacked by Al Qada when they intercepted the planes video images yet alone trying to prevent script kiddies hacking away at phones in their bedrooms.
