ur probably right, but they were talking about their other android phones, not their g2s.

Not true. Many ended up returning their Droid X's and I think that's why their "resale" value (if traded in to Verizon) is less than an Eris and definitely less than an Incredible.

The only vote the consumers have is with their wallets. Make a stink about it when you return it to the manager. The noisy assed Sunchips bags are finally being changed due to a small drop in sales

Which is the biggest disappointment for me. I love my HTC phone because of it's ability to be hacked. It's what differentiated HTC and other manufactures.

Unacceptable HTC

Don't give up. Anything electronic can be hacked whether physically or logically. Hell, a toaster oven could be hacked and made to do whatever it is you do with a hacked toaster oven.

Plus, the "big dogs" are getting their hands on these devices now so it shouldn't be too much longer.
MyTouch 4G (rooted, superCID, etc)

HTC One X Rooted (No S = Off ... yet )

I'll take a look at that and hopefully something will be interesting to look at.
Thanks.

I don't really know what I'm doing and they're are not for Android, but maybe there's some clues in these Linux drivers:

http://tomoyo.sourceforge.jp/cgi-bin...inux/mmc/mmc.h

Are we sure that sdcard is mmc2 and not mmc1? I haven't seen any mmc2's in anyone's command outputs, and I would suspect that it should be visible in something... if mmc1 *is* the missing space, then that is a very good sign.

Please don't fall for the marketing nonsense about having a hard time keeping them in stock.. it is 100% artificial, exactly the same way as the fruit company does it.

Here is an email directly from HTC a few minutes ago.

"I understand how important it is to know the extent you can customize your device to and I appreciate your interest in software and development. HTC is not aware of any Root Kit or Blocking feature on the G2. It is quite possible such a feature was added by Google or the Carrier. Please be aware that third party roms even on our older devices do void the warranty on a phone and we can not support them. The only thing we would be able to do is direct you to some of the feedback sites and our support forums located at http://www.htc.com/ us/. We can only support the ROM that came on the device or updates provided at carriers request for a device."
