Exclamation Why XDA should also accept ROM project without Sources...

I know, this thread might violate xda-rules... BUT...!

Generally it is right, to ban Android projects without giving sources...
I think, this is good...

But here we are speaking about an Android port to an NON ANDROID DEVICE...
Surely sources might be posted publically...

But one example...
I know Tigrouzen's "ZenDroKat ROM"....
I had FULL ACCESS to his Webserver...
There were also some source files... But not all...
Tried to download them... But useless and incomplete...
Unfortunately he lost his sources due to hardware issue...

Decompiling "ZenDroKat" is impossible...
Well...
But I think, we should accept technically working solutions without knowing how they work...
I think, there is no reason, to see these ROMs as warez...

I am using "ZenDroKat V2.3" permanently as primary OS on my Wave II device and it runs much smoother than bada ever did...
With blocking "non-opened" ROMs xda blocks improvement of technologies in smartphone development.

I hope, that xda will accept, that devs can release their ROMs not only as badaDROID versions (where the sources are available)...
I think, when there is an acceptable reputation of the product (and for ZenDroKat it is!), it should be also accepted her...

Hope to get an affordable response by xda....

Thanks in advance...!

True.

After using his NAND Rom, I can say the guy has put a lot of effort in the ROM making, and he deserves to be credited. His ROM as of now is the best ROM out there and the NAND Rom has now become my daily driver.

Thanks TigrouZen, because of you, my phone is alive and better than ever. Goodbye bada forever.
