I am gutted too, but unlike me or others, gunman decided that there is something left to say when 3 of our best devs decided to go leaving unfinished work behind. Judging from an honest point of view, it comes that I pretty much reason with him. You all mentioned that this work is time consuming, unpaid and you all devs do it for pleasure (we appreciate this and trust me, we don't know how to thank you enough for it), but at the same time you offered yourself to do this. It's technically the same thing as if I offered my friend to tune up his car because I would take pleasure in doing so and I am damn good at it, but then half way through the process I decide to stop doing the tunnning and return his car unfinished. At the end it's all resumed to a matter of ethics. Gunman probably tried to say the same thing, and tried to make you devs feel a bit guilty, with the hope that you would probably return and finish the job off.
I have been following this thread on a daily basis and kept on eye on everyone's questions and answers, but again, come on, what are you like, 12. Someone shows a bit of frustration and you all jump up like you'be been punched in the face. Moreover, some of you come up with smart-ass, arrogant replys saying that spiders are not bugs and not all bugs are insects, and then others pop in and applaud the way gunman was told off. Let me tell you something, we live in a free world and have the liberty to say and do whatever we like, mainly because people like Gunman, who unlike the rest, he's got the guts to come up front and tell what he doesn't like, at the same time showing that he understands and is guided in life by some ethics and want others to do the same. But I probably better stop here, I already said more than I intended!

I applaud you for sticking up for another member of the community and i fully understand that this thread has gone off topic too much.
My comment smart arse or arrogant... Nope just stating a fact.
Gunman's comments; i don't know whether English is his native tongue or not, but reading them back with a native tongue of English, it comes across very smart arse and arrogant.
The devs have done their devving and have now sold their phones to move to a better device.
Do they release an update that they haven't tested and brick your device?
To use your car analogy,
Vertigo installs an untested supercharger to the engine of your skoda.... it is too powerful that it rips the engine apart and rips the wheels from the axle. Your car is a write off and can only be fixed by a specialist.
Would you thank Vertigo for installing this supercharger, when he has no prior experience of installing said supercharger, or even have a skoda to test it on before the installed it in yours and ****ed up your car....
I think you and many would be mighty pissed off.
At present the devs have tuned your car, something which has essentially voided your warranty with the manufacturer, and something which you have done by your own hand by installing their modifications. You are not stuck with sense 4, it is possible to flash back to stock rom and then not be worried or angered by the fact that a rom which is not designed for the phone that you own, is half finished.
Trying to guilt people in to doing work as you expressed that Gunman did, is not particularly a nice thing to do. How is quilting people in to doing something "living your life by some ethics"? Isn't this what dictators do, suppress people with guilt and fear so that they do their duty???
With a name like Gunman.... is their not an element of confrontation here?
Anyway, i really have no more to say on the matter and i sincerely hope this thread gets locked. i WILL not test or go anywhere near "GUNMANS ROM" even if he promised to supercharge my phone..... because i have ethics.
