As a new Droid owner, I found this main Droid website to understand my phone. I noticed this "Droid Hacks - Discussions for hacking Droid Phones" listed within it. Let's check it out.
What a suprise this site turned out to be. The four sticky's at the top of the forum range from angry to disingenuous.
Let's start with some yardstick. What is the definition of Hacking?
Hacker (computing), a contentious term used for several types of person:
Are we Door number 1, 2, or 3 above?
- Hacker (computer security) or cracker, who accesses a computer system by circumventing its security system
- Hacker (programmer subculture), who shares an anti-authoritarian approach to software development now associated with the free software movement
- Hacker (hobbyist), who makes innovative customizations or combinations of retail electronic and computer equipment
Since the stated goal of this site is to obtain access to the 'root' of the Android OS, it is clear a forum member seeks to become a 'Super Administrator'. Why? To circumvent the Droid's security system and develop 'unauthorized feature enhancements' (a.k.a. hacks). This is a theft of services and is absolutely outside of the TOS.
So I identify this site as Door number 1.
I can only assume the four Sticky's are sanctimonious boiler plate to cover up the real intentions of this site.
BTW, I don't have any issues with hacks. I love Homebrew on my WII.
I just find the irony on this website, over the top.
I guess there is 'Honor Among Thieves'.
