    • Reminder - MoDaCo position on illegal content

      ILLEGAL CONTENT I'd like to just reaffirm MoDaCo's position regarding piracy and illegal content in the light of some recent questions / postings. Posts will be censored by myself or my moderation team if the contain or link to: Illegal / pirated / cracked software or sites that host such software
      Nintendo emulators / ROMs or sites hosting them (in light of Nintendo's legal stance)


      CUSTOM ROMS

      You may discuss and post links to custom device ROMs on MoDaCo, provided the following rules are adhered to: ROMs must not be hosted directly in topic via the MoDaCo attachment system
      ROMs must not contain any illegal 3rd party software (this includes trial versions included without permission)
      ROMs must give full credit to the original author
      This decision has been taken in light of the huge amount of interest in this area of device customisation within the community, and member feedback! Please note that custom ROM discussion should be kept in specific device sub-areas, (e.g. Kaiser.MoDaCo.com for Kaiser based devices). ISSUES If you have any issues with this policy, please contact me directly via PM. P

It's due to that locked bootloader. And they don't plan on unlocking it

Obviously... And also the rule is that you buy a phone for what it does today, not for what it may do down the road (ICS...).

And what it does today is worth every penny in my book, it is fast, has good gaming performance, camera is good, full hd video, not the best, but in good lighting using lg camera app, it performs well, the screen is also good, by far the clearest and best viewing angles of all the devices I have had so far.

Yes it is gingerbread, but it is clean and not so much bloat, no root and locked bootloader may be hacked in future but not a deal breaker, with ics coming later in the year this device is undoubtedly a good device that one could use as a daily driver, as I do myself( I have a g300 for root, flashing, and, general messing about)

I went and traded mine for a like new HTC One X for about £100 more. I do not regret this choice one bit.

For anyone still reading this topic, you may want to have a look at the root progress thread :P

They're making some real progress from what I've read. And once this phone is rooted and has custom roms etc., I dont think there's any competition for the price...

Not really, there has been plenty progress so that is an unfair comment glossywhite. No progress with regard to the intended progress but, the device is now recoverable and we have a flashing tool that although not working now, it is likely someone will work it out. I would call that progress compared to before rickywyatt got to work on this device.
