: Framaroot is, as I'm sure you're aware, a great, handy, easy-to-use app. I was able to root my Nokia X with it, and I'm truly grateful for you for creating the app. Yet at the same time I'm quite dumbfounded by this.
The Framaroot forum section is listed under "XDA Community Apps", although I don't understand how an app can be a "community app" if the community can't do as much with it as they should be able to. I'd have understood the decision to keep the source closed if this were a paid app, but it's not, and you already have a donation app on Google Play Store which enables people to donate to you as a way of saying "thank you for all your hard work and effort for putting this app together!".
Closed source is counterproductive and I'm sure that I'm not the only person out there who is always somewhat suspicious of closed-source tools; yes, you're a trusted developer and you're probably not
going to steal my data/brick my device/burn down my house, but I can't be 100% sure if I'm not able to review the source and maybe even compile it myself.
You seem like a sensible person, so I'd request you reconsider this decision and weigh the positive and negative aspects of it.
