And trust me, I understand where you are all coming from. Let me make it a little "clearer" for you.
He was talking to someone from here (XDA) and was trying to help them unlock a device (not this one). Well, he shared some of this "privileged" and "proprietary" info with this person and then either that user snitched on him, or that user told someone else who then snitched on him.
He also talked to a few others who were also privy to info like this from other companies and such. When he got busted and offered a plea bargain to rat out any those other people or his friends, he shot them down and took the heat for everyone else.
This isn't Facebook. Getting upset and throwing accusations towards my husband for trying to help someone out from this forum is not going to do anything but make him feel even worse.
I am sorry he couldn't personally come back here and inform you all when the Feds were trashing our house, taking all of our electronic devices, or when he got out on bail for 2 days and was trying to spend some time with his family (me and his children). And yes it does suck that he couldn't remove this thread before he was sentenced to serve a term in a USP, but he was a little preoccupied.
He was just trying to share some information about something that he believed was wrong (people spending hundred of dollars to buy a device that they cannot have full control over, locking the boot thingys). He has been a huge supporter of open source and consumer rights for a long time. He believes in all of this stuff, and he went to prison for it.
Posting your negative feelings or thoughts about someone who had dedicated most if his free time to this forum and helping others out isn't right. I see people have already informed you of the "only" way to do whatever it is your whining about, so please, just listen to them and leave my husband alone. Going down for something you believe in is the only thing keeping him going. I know he is more than sorry for any inconvenience he has caused anyone. He just isn't like that and he cares a lot about this place....
I am sorry for posting this in your section, but I just felt it needed to be said. His account (the h311sdr0id account) is hooked up with my computer so I can send him weekly printouts of what's going on and what new devices are out. And I have to sift through it all so that I don't accidentally send him anything that might make him sad.
