So remove the apps that aren't included in the source repository and we can push them in manually. What's the big deal? They're telling you to stop including those apps, not to stop developing custom builds.

The big deal is that these barebone versions will no longer sync our contacts / calendars / etc!

I can do without the gmail app, but syncing my contacts and calendars is a deal breaker for me.

Why do companies insist on alienating those who hawk their hardware and software the most? I've never seen a group of more dedicated Android enthusiasts than those who run Cyanogen and other roms. Google is basically saying "screw you" to those of us who really care about the platform over a legal issue that will in no way hurt them.

That's evil. I don't care if the law is behind them.

My intent was to make a ROM for Android devices using the bits we already have (proprietary parts) and everything else built from source.

The 1.6 Market was a leak, and most likely untraceable.

Android without the Google parts is not usable for an end-user. There is no sync functionality, no market, no IM or GTalk, no maps..

I was always under the impression that it was OK to do this since I don't modify the Google apps, and only targeted devices which were licensed for them. Apparently this is not the case.

Might as well consider this entire forum cease-and-desisted.

Why cant this idiots cant give cyano (or other developers) an free contract to enter into a commitment that the devs have only the original/legal Apps to build in? Isnt it possible ? THAT will be the best way because cyano can go on to give us great roms and google can be happy that he will take the original apks?

The devs can download the apps at google, get a hash that google can check and thats it ? It is the easiest way to go ahead?
