Bootloaders, Rooting, Manufacturers, and Carriers

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Came across an interesting forum post about the rumored future of Android...

http://www.mydroidworld.com/forums/a...-carriers.html

Looks like manufacturers and carriers are really going to start clamping down and stopping us from rooting/tweaking our Android phone... I have noticed that manufacturers are locking down their phones more and more lately... What do you guys think of this?

I think there will be the mainstream line that gets locked down, and I think the Nexus line will become more prominent and widely available.

I have a Droid X and was planning on rooting it to remove bloatware as well as try some different ROMs until I read this over the weekend. Is news like this a reason to be concerned about having a rooted phone or is it still relatively safe for the foreseeable future? Thanks.

Right now I am running the GB leak for the droidx and I don't see any problems with it as of right now. I have been rooted for about 4 months now and haven't had any problems. I don't think there will be much danger unless you are trying to tether massive amounts of data. I heard people were having problems using Wireless Tether on GB so maybe they did something to stop the unauthorized use. GB is running so smooth. Definitely worth trying. Increases battery life and performance a lot!

If true, there's going to be a pretty big market for phones that are modifiable.

You might also see Linus sue handset manufacturers for GPL violations, but that's just wild speculation.
