    Yes, hilarious. Sent it to my apple buddies, they even thought it funny.

    Topic related: I really like the idea of 2 cameras so the X and 2 are out for me. Holding off and see what next year brings.

    Don't forget that modding geeks like us are a very small piece of the pie. Most consumers could care less if they can mod their phone.
    It's all about the $ for Moto and Verizon and if they have to alienate a few phone geeks to put more cash in their pockets it will be done.

    I don't know about how few is few. There was an article that BB v0.4 drew in 40k or so downloads. That's not including other ROMs which even if the remainder totaled the same 40k that would be 80k.

    80,000 * 200 = $16 Million dollars lost sales to Moto. It could also be a loss to VZW for yearly contract revenue if those consumers went to other carriers offering a competing, more open, handset. So just for giggles if HALF of the 80k went elsewhere at a $2000/yr loss that would be $80 Million dollars in lost contract revenue yearly for VZW. Like I said folks. Write a letter and make your stance known and back it up by voting with your wallet.

    LG G2X w/ rooted 2.3.3 leak.

    It's OK for your Droid to be different. Just be supportive and reassuring and it will do just fine. It's when you or other people point at it or mock it for being different is when its' feelings get hurt. Just show it unconditional love regardless of its' differences and it will in turn reciprocate that love and loyalty.

    according to this article at Droiddog, if you look at the update at the bottom. Motorola has confirmed that "e-fues" tripping from a tampered boot loader is nothing more than a rumor

    I had to remove the Youtube video when it was posted here, not family oriented. Other mods knocked off other copies too. However, while not suitable for here, I agree it was hilarious!

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    I still think any company who tries to lock down intellectual property After the sell of that property, Profit taken from that property, & still want to control that property for possible future profit; well by any other name would be know as "greed"
