[KERNEL] [OC/UV Support]Lastest stock Kernel with fast charge, 2WCR, and Ponury
I have removed this kernel and will no longer be distributing my kernel on XDA or participating at XDA. I received a request regarding the GPL which I could have easy complied with; however, it really irked me because making the request itself was very hypocritical.
XDA as a site is extremely hypocritical. They enforce the GPL against kernels but I have never seen them raise an issue regarding all the ROMs here which include gpl software but don't provide source. An example would be busybox. I have yet to see a developer distribute the code for it although almost very ROM on this site includes it. Also there are certain developers which don't provide source for their work as required by the gpl and action is never taken against them but it is against others.
Any enforcement of copyleft or copyright by XDA is really hypocritical because very ROM on this site violates copyright. Even the AOSP ROMs contain proprietary copyrighted software which the developers don't have a license to distribute. Any ROM based upon HTC Sense, Samsung Touchwiz, or any other vendor environment is violating copyright because these companies have not granted a license to distribute their software.
Are you using a ROM with Beats on your Evo 3d? If so the developer distributing it is violating HTC's license and you are to because HTC hasn't granted you a license to use it.
I'm not saying these things should be enforced and XDA should ban all ROMs, but what they shouldn't do is pretend they are protecting free software or policing against pirated copyrighted software. XDA is built upon violating free software and violating copyright. They have chosen to selectively enforce copyleft and copyright to suit their needs. Anytime selective enforcement is allowed it will lead to abuse of the privilege to selective enforce. This is exactly what is happening at XDA.
XDA needs to either to fully enforce copyleft and copyright or to not enforce. The current situation is extermely hypocritical and in the end leaves XDA just as exposed to legal action as not enforcing copyleft and copyright.
I appreciate all the thanks I have received from users and regret that I cannot continue to provide you kernels here at XDA.
