So the two Skull One's think alike. :icon_eek: When I started reading this thread as soon as he said he side-loaded my first thought was "That would be so irritating to download every app I have installed and manually installing them through a file manager every time I loaded a new ROM". Then the red flag went off. There's zero reason to side-load "everything" unless you are pirating. Side-loading prevents you from getting updates. It prevents you from easily moving from ROM to ROM especially if you're changing versions of Android (2.2.1 to 2.3.3). While we will never know the truth something tells me Skull One (the original one ) hit the nail squarely on the head and drove it into the 2x4 on the first hit. Here's a dancing banana for you sir for such a great post! :icon_ banana: I also could care less about Google, Apple, and MS having the ability to do this. They don't and will never use it maliciously as it would be business suicide for them.
