    HTC Releases Clarification Regarding Custom Roms and RUUs


    Recently HTC took down a website that was known for hosting HTC RUU files and other Roms. This sparked a bunch of commotion and some fear in the HTC mod community. Some folks have been wondering if this means that HTC has taken an official stand against custom Roms and the use of stock RUU files. Rumors spread rapidly, and HTC has decided to clarify the situation via a blog post. They have said that they did not take down the website because it hosted Roms and RUUs rather the website was taken down because it used HTC trademarks without a license from HTC. The domain name of the site contained HTC and it had HTC logos which could have been confused for an official HTC website. They decided to go after the site because they do not want to be associated or blamed for software that they have not officially released.

    HTC also said that they openly embrace the development that chooses to flash custom Roms on to their device. They went on to site the HTCdev bootloader unlock tool as evidence that they do in fact support the dev community. So The sky is not falling and HTC is not going to go after other websites that decide to host RUUs and Roms. They simply wanted to protect their brand and their reputation.

    Makes sense.

    This woulda been helpful to know at the time all this went down. So....you mean the folks behind that site didnt know this? They couldnty come out and say this? Interesting....

    Well that's good to hear, still a bad move and this will have some consequences to their customers and potential customers though.

    When they sue a Polish grocery store for their domain name they'll lose me as a customer.
