    It was leaked and can potentially brick devices.

    From convo from DroidMOD;


    [12:05] == pc747 [add91ae7@gateway/web/freenode/ip.173.217.26.231] has joined #droidmod
    [12:06] <pc747> importatnt question The new dmupdater is that an approved app you guys put out or did it get leaked and its not finished. Poeple putting on their devices and want to know as im being asked
    [12:06] <@vulc4n> it was leaked.
    [12:07] <pc747> and are u guys charging 20 bucks for it. it does not seem like you guys to be doing some stff like that
    [12:07] <@vulc4n> lol. where did you hear that?
    [12:07] <pc747> its all over the forum people saying they are now being charged 20 bucks
    [12:07] <pc747> droidforum'

    [12:09] <pc747> want to get this stuff straighten out. If people aint suppose to have it i need to tell the admin to pull those links
    [12:09] <@vulc4n> no, they aren't supposed to have them.
    [12:10] <@Ronen> vulc4n, can't really "leak" something that was posted in a (then public) IRC channel...
    [12:10] <@TheDeathly> Ronen, but it wasnt supposed to leave the channel.
    [12:10] <@TheDeathly> although it was on the git, so its "fair play".
    [12:10] <@vulc4n> Ronen: I suppose. I think Camel may have made this into a bigger mess than it needed to be
    [12:10] <pc747> thanks can you have some one for you group let droidlife know that so the can disable the links. If they can potentially mess up phones
    [12:11] <@vulc4n> pc747: are you in touch with the guy who runs droidlife?

    [12:11] <pc747> brb ill get his gmail
    [12:11] <@vulc4n> pc747: and yes, it absolutely has the potential to brick phones.

    [12:13] <pc747> ima let the mods and admin on droidforum know to pull those links.
    [12:13] <@Ronen> Whoops...that wasn't supposed to happen.
    [12:13] <pc747> thanks.
    [12:14] <pc747> do you have a problem if i copy and paste our convo to the admin
    [12:15] <@vulc4n> pc747: sure. actually, can I get into contact with him, too?
    [12:15] <@vulc4n> I wanted to see about getting some sort of official account for the droidmod team over there
    [12:15] <@Ronen> Neat, FRG01B is out.
    [12:16] <DLister|work> vulc4n: dmupdater is in the market for $20
    [12:16] <@TheDeathly> i dont even see it.
    [12:16] <pc747> http://www.droidforums.net/forum/private.php?do=newpm&u=2
    [12:16] <@vulc4n> hah. I bet I know what happened.

    [12:17] <pc747> i did not see the app either but people are saying hitting the link takes them there. I do not know because I am rooted manually. I will post a thread telling people to not get any apps dealing with dmupdater unless the get it from you guys webpage. is that an acurate statement
    [12:17] <JoeTheGuest> Yea love the dmupdater update

    [12:18] <@vulc4n> pc747: it was prerelease software, we are just trying to keep people from bricking their phones. Its something that still needs testing.
    [12:18] <@TheDeathly> UncleRuckus, i read scroll up. Because, so stuff cant get leaked again.
    [12:19] <pc747> ok ima copy and paste this . Got to go to work. But people were raving on it, but it was weird it was not on ur page

    Ok I installed this prior to finding out it was leaked. I run the dmupdater and it comes up with a message asking to update to version 0.1.2 after that it takes you to market and the price is $20.00. Just wanted to point that out.

    I am uninstalling the app now until its official release. thanks for the heads up!

    Wow.. I am really shocked about this. I mean seriously, if a link was given out on IRC they know that there is lurkers in there waiting to jump on something like this and leak it out to the masses. This hit Droid life, then Droidforums and then 10 other sites in a matter of a few hours. They could have at least posted something on DroidMod.org about this.

    ladies and gentleman please do not use the DM updater until they have fully released it. apparently it can cause serious issues. As always if you chose to use it you do it at your own risk Df assumes no responsibility

    My other thread got closed as this was reopened, so I guess I'll repost here.

    In case I wasn't clear, I'm not upset with anyone about the accidental leak, using any rooting method is a risk the user takes on themselves. I"m only interested in mitigating any damage that might have already taken place.

    I picked up the leaked DM updater almost immediately after it was posted on droid life and used it right away. I don't know if i'm lucky or the tool wasn't as bad as they made it seem but my droid is rooted and functioning fine (although I was having some "damaged" sd card problems).

    Is there any damage that the tool might have caused behind the scenes on my phone which should be addressed on a seemingly functional device, or was this simply a pass/fail potential for problems? If the tool didn't brick the device right away am I in the clear or is there potential for problems down the road that I should clear up now?

    After using an adapter to mount my sd card on my pc, I backed up my info and scanned for errors. The droid then accepted the sd without errors, but I still reformatted on device before restoring my media and downloads. It's now running fine.

    Any advice would be appreciated, and if anyone thinks my SD card issue might be related, advice on that would be appreciated as well.

    No damage behind the scenes, it would have bricked your device instantly if it had messed up. Your sd card is fine, the damage might have come from the program copying files to it or something but I doubt it.... Be happy it worked, your not gonna find trouble down the line either, your safe. dancedroid

    I don't understand what all the hub bub is about, in the link from this forum to the download it clearly stated it was a beta program and to use at your own risk, and it said it had the potential to brick your device. I don't believe it has bricked many peoples phones I would like to see some posts or reports of this happening. My guess is that if it did hurt someone phone they didn't follow the directions and used it on a droid inc or droid x or with 2.01 or some other software version. It clearly stated also it could only be used on 2.1 and on the droid 1.... I guess its safer to pull just in case, but really where did you hear that its bricking phones left and right?

    so when this first came out i was debating to use it...so i did the DMupdater and everything worked fine for me..then like an hour of being rooted i decided to unroot because i just didnt feel like having it anymore. i went back to the DMupdater, and i updated to the latest one installed 2.0.1 back. as well as deleted the nandroid backup and everything that dealt with rooting out of the sdcard. and a couple minutes later i got the 2.1-update1 OTA. so im guessing nothing went wrong during my experience on the Dmupdater
