    Edit: Everything has been settled. There will still be a SholesModUpdater

    A personal view point. | Sholes

    Go over to sholes.info (when it gets back up) and leave them a comment thanking them for all their time and money put into this...


    EDIT: they took the link down for some reason...
    But here's what happened

    Person 1 (nice guy) gave person 2 (stealer? idk whats going on) a job to work with the sholes team developing an app called sholes mod updater and split the money. But person 2 (supposively) wanted it all to himself. So he took it and ran... so no more updates, no more sholesmodupdater... but still a good team that will keep making and updating roms.
    But there is still a sholes team. Just with person 2

    Edit: Well i emailed person 2 asking him about it and this is what he said

    That is really pathetic if the person that wrote the app really is taking all the money for himself.

    I said this on sholes.info, but I'm gonna post it here again:

    Wow. The only reason I bought the app from the market instead of getting it off of sholes.info for free was so that I could send some money to the developers for their obvious hard work and dedication. I guess money really is the root of all evil.

    It's really easy doing it manually..

    Download one of the "back to stock" backups
    Put it on SD card (root dir if it's update.zip or nandroid folder if its a nandroid backup)
    x+ power to boot into recovery
    click install for update.zip
    or
    click Adv. restore + select your backup
    Reboot

    man, that sucks. But that is why whenever you deal with money, get everything in writing. For legal reasons of course

    This isnt the end of the sholes team by any means. There were some small monetary concerns with people whom will not be named that will hopefully be resolved within a short period of time.

    Its not over yet folks, just a bump in the road.
