I would like to get S-off on my verizon M8 to be able to install Xprivacy or Cm11 once its been tested a little more. Obviously I do this for control of my information and privacy.
With the Verizon M8 the only way to get S-off that I'm aware of is using weaksause and firewater.
Both of these tool are closed source. I give the developers mad props for making these tools and helping out the community but for someone like my I really have an issue with running closed source tools that are getting that deep on my phone.
I'm not a fan of using closed source tools which is why I like Cm and Xprivacy but I can understand with the phone being so new why the developers would leave these tools closed source. However I also know that there could be other reasons too.
Would waiting for a potential open source option be worth it?
Thanks for any input.
