"B.S." sums it up well. I ALREADY OWN AN S3. THAT is the one I want unlocked. What good is a developer version when we've all already bought one?Originally Posted by JRParsons
I was annoyed by the BL issue before. But this recent "developer version" news straight up pisses me off. Why aren't all the carriers offering a developer version? (Oh yeah, that's right. They already have unlocked phones.)
I don't even know who to be mad at now. I was mad at VZW, but buying a retail "developer" phone through Sammy directly?! I think they're both in this together.
I wouldn't recommend using the current rooting/CWM method (IF you're picky) as I've been getting some keyboard troubles other than Swype, incuding auto-correction and typing itself not working. Not to complain though, I appreciate it regardless. I'll be trying this later tonight: [SOLVED] PROPER Remake of Rooted Stock Image - xda-developers
I will say the developer edition is a great idea. I just don't think it would be long until the developer edition shows up on a torrent for the rest of us. 600 bucks.. Really? I wouldn't mind paying a couple of extra bucks but its OPEN SOURCE.
From what it sounds like I might have to hold up rooting until the issues are resolved.
