    More proof that Motorola will never again deserve any of our hard earned money. If they try this crap with the DX Motorola Planning on Pulling Cliq 2.1 ROMS from the Web | Android Community I personally will not ANYTHING made by Motorola again:icon_evil::icon_evil::icon_evil::icon_evil::icon_evil::icon_evil::icon_evil::icon_evil::icon_evil:

    They already have or are planning too? And you know this how? Just wanna know.

    Edit: Just read on it. This is ridiculous. Think its more like an open but controlled platform. Which would not make it OPEN. And most likely the people that are putting custom ROM's on their phone don't want the updates that Moto has to offer.

    Is anything like this EVER surprising? Seriously, they are all the same, talk about an open platform but only want so to a degree.

    If it was truely the case we wouldnt have to root :)

    I hate how motorola talks as if the mod community doesn't try to protect its users from any problems (if any) involved. The mod community offers more support than motorola and theyre taken aback by the fact that we compromise their software and have full support for nearly everyone.

    That is what I'm going to do with my next phone. It will either be Samsung or LG.

    I had the Samsung i910 & i920 Samsucks updates and service were worse than Moto's.
    How about HTC ???

    Its not surprising though. Its a company looking out for its best interest. Lets say you buy a phone root it and mess around with the hardware like OCing it. If you mess it up well there's SBF and you can get back to stock and return it within 30days for another one. Thats one issue. The other issue is due to patent or license agreements or agreements with service providers they want to keep them as a customer or not get sued. If you can root your phone and get free wifi teathering without paying 30$ a month for 5gb added on. The android system is amazing. i had the iphone for 2.5 years and i jailbreaked it way back when it was terminal only. I did everything i could on it. Every update i had to wait to find out whether it was okay or not to move up. I had my droid x for 2 weeks and i was way happier its been 3 months now and it gets better all the time like the PSP when it first started out. My PSP ha i have two 1000s its the greatest sony blocks it all the time from being homebrewed. But if you look at how it was in the beginning and how it is now all the enhancements they have made were done by the community before they made them. Moto has to make a profit to survive. if they make a phone that is unsecured no service provider wouldnt want to sell there product because of security issues and then issues like tethering for free. This is them covering there ass. They cant be sued if they are actively trying to prevent stuff from happening but they can if they are like whatever. eventually as time goes by the companies will embrace the community ideas and put them in there phone. it took 4 years before jobs let you put a background on your phone other than the lock screen. it took the past 5 months for jobs to change his mind on letting you develop in adobe if you wanted too. that stubborn bastard eventually budged because of the community. Sony started making additions to the psp after the community had it for years.

    haha yeah a long effen commit. but i love my droid x, my buddy has the evo and he has been having issues and his is stock. only thing i wish is the droid x had the front facing camera also.

    Easytether $10 once unlimited data > Verizon tether $30 a month 5gb limit. What Verizon did makes me want to open up my easytether a download a 50 gb torrent and see them not get a dime but then they would probably charge me or cancel my service. I love Verizon's 3g coverage but hate their actions.

    The article was written yesterday. My thoughts are from the article is they are pulling 2.1 from Internet to make it something of the pass. The 2.2 they said nothing. They also said that they want to remove 2.1 to prevent future problems.

    One other thought is ROMS are like the torrent community they can try to stop them but won't. Plus ROMS are not illegal in any way. You bought the phone you can do what you want with it.

    Why would you pay 10$ for a app to allow you to tether? there's free ones out there and if you have root there's even more options. You should get a free one and if you really like it then donate. the easy tether seems like its a company not someone part of the community. I'm using the one with APEX.

    Roms arent illegal but using their rom is. Copyright infringement. using custom roms with zero blur is legal. custom roms with a bit of blur could fall under that because its there software and it would be pirating then. unless there software is under GNPL or GPL which ever its there stuff. But the argument can be used that your using there software on there phone so its not pirating you just removed the crap you didnt want. if blur gets put on another phone then that would cause a problem. But as for the mobile phone community rooting jailbreaking w/e is legal.

    @Joey
    Verizon doesn't offer a plan like that. Its $30 for unlimited use on your phone, and $20 for 2gb of hotspot tethering. There is no 5gb cap on your phone's data, but they can disable or terminate your service for violating their TOS. Just keep that in mind.

    @Lawrence
    There's nothing wrong with someone making some money off Android without the burden of "giving back" to a community. Why would someone spend $10 for EasyTether? The answer is in its name - its easy. You install a little app on your PC and run this app on your phone. No proxies, no network configuration, just plug in your phone and it instantly connects. You do not need to root your phone and risk voiding your warranty with Verizon and Motorola (though you're still technically breaking the TOS), and you can transfer it from phone to phone.

    Also, since I can't tether over Bluetooth, I don't like using wifi-tether for root users. It uses a hacky ad-hoc method that has WEP as its best defense, which might as well be no defense at all.

    (And yes, I'm aware of TBH's NVRAM hack, but I'm using a deblurred ROM so I can't use the 3G hotspot app, sadly)
