    I mean, it really wouldn't be any different than how Apple, Motorola, HTC, Samsung, etc. operate. They appeal to certain customers. If Moto and Verizon only want businesses to use them, we would have modders as our customers.

Most of the developers already know as much as the bigwigs so I don't think it would be all that hard. Aside from gathering the money that would be needed to start such a thing.

    Except the problem is they really don't care that we actually exist in the first place. I would be surprised if the total modding population comprised 1% of the actual users (meaning those who do roms and such, not general mods) so therefore they just don't do anything because they don't want to let us, we just don't figure in the equation at all... As for Apple, they absolutely to not setup for modding within their guidelines. If they could stop the jailbreaking completely they would do it in a heartbeat. A jailbreak comes out and they try to release an update to stop it immediately. They hate that - because apple knows best ;p

    I loved the flexibility of my OD and do miss it sometimes, but the d3 has been very good to me . Considering the 906 update right now although I haven't quite pulled the trigger yet...

    I have been gritting my teeth about the .906 update. I'm trying to hold out until it's officially released and then re-root and re-mod.

    If we had 12.5 billion modders out there willing to do it, I would so pitch in my dollar.

    .906 has been out for a little while officially. Before I rooted/safestrapped I updated to .906, then rooted/safestrapped MavRom 4.0 which is already updated to .906 as well.
