Illegal to unlock our phones - Page 2

You can unlock the bootloader for the purpose of installing a custom rom. It is only illegal to unlock it from the carrier that you bought it on. Sent from my SCH-I605 using Tapatalk 2

How to root N1 UNLOCK ! - Page 2


Saturday 01st of January 2011 / android.net
Thanks again danger-rat for the updated guideI did this 8 months ago and wasn't sure about all being up-to-dateScanned your link and quickly remembered how frustrating it was to set up SDK without someone to guide me. You did a great job with dude.I bookmarked the link in case someone else needs help, if ok with you.We all had to start fresh at one point and some with a lot less tech or android experience than others. So, don't mind trying to help with those willing to do some of it themselves.I guess our op got it worked out or is still partying Happy New Year Ken

Now legal to root our phones?


Monday 26th of July 2010 / android.net
Hey everyone, not too sure how much you all follow up on recent news. Especially news that regards copyrights and other patent/copyright protection laws out there. But as of today, according to the US Copyright office, it has been granted that it's legal to jailbreak iPhones and other handsets (I assume they mean root in our books here...) Here is the article by the EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation),HereAnd the rule by the USCO, Here So what does this mean for us? For what I understand, this should just mean root access or atleast installing from outside sources. I am unsure if this means access to the bootloader. However, as Android is an open source application, I can't see why we can't have access over the ROM either. Victorious day for us? (Sorry about low post count, I mainly lurk here. I thought you guys would be rather interested in this subject)

Anyone tired of the fact that our phones..... - Page 2


Tuesday 13th of April 2010 / droidforums.net
I am glad our phones are not made by HTC. Have you ever messed around with an Eris? I used calculators in high school that were more capable. Have you seen the multi touch tests with the N1? They are laughable. If you want to have some more chuckles, check out the reviews in the market for Asphalt 5, particularly the ones from Nexus owners. Anyway, I believe that HTC makes too many phones too fast, without much attention to detail. I love my beefy metal beast, and will only replace it with a Droid 2. Read any HTC stories like these? =DNaked Droid falls 10 feet to concrete, laughshttp://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...oid-15-ft.htmlhttp://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...rig-crash.html

I'm rather hopeful(yet extremely doubtful) that this might spur some google employees to start helping in the rooting process. That or have Google just build something that'll root the damn thing for us.

They could have still have had the thinnest phone at the time and had a battery that demolished all other phone batteries.Either way Motorola hurt it's customer loyalty and will have to manufacture and advertise two phones which are essentially the same within 3 months.

How to Root the Echo - Page 2


Tuesday 02nd of August 2011 / forums.androidcentral.com
Even we un-root the phone, some techie will recognize that our echo is once rooted.If you use apk like Z4Root, even you un-root the phone, the Superuser Icon (the skull) still exist in your echo's drawer.Also if you install some rooted apps like Titanium Backup, Drocap2 or Shootme (for screen capture), root explorer (hello??), etc. These apps still exist even you un-root it with Z4Root. So I suggest, if you want to claim some warranty on your rooted echo, beside using un-root option on Z4Root also dont forget to uninstall those rooted apps...or just conduct factory / hard reset, this will make your echo back to square one

Now Legal to Unlock Cell Phones


Saturday 26th of July 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
The law was passed to make it legal to unlock cell phones. I don't know if it will matter with a Verizon phone since they were on CDMA, but our Note 3 is suppose to have multiple radio's. I would just like to be able to root the thing and get rid of some bloat apps and get administrative rights on a few apps that could do more if I had it, and be able to do regular updates while keeping my root. Congress restores consumers' right to unlock phones
