The irony in the situation is the only phones that these custom builds touch really are phones who's manufacturers or providers already have a "business deal" to have these apps pre-installed on the phone. Enough said. If you want to be real about it HTC should be more concerned with hero being ported and and their pdf/office being passed around. Google don't lose anything at this point letting us play with our phones. Their turning rom distribution of any existing android build into warez, and all over apps that already come on the phone.

ok, like i said in the post that got closed immediately after i posted it...

I propose a one day boycott of using your G phones, and that any willing community members hosting pages on android take them down for one day as a show of support for cyan, and to show G that although its within their legal rights, that a better solution must be found.

Who's down? Got a good date in mind?

That's like being sued by microsoft for souping up the version of windows that came with your PC...
this is a good point if we already have the app then it isnt being distributed it is being reinstalled. or we just all jump to a hero rom and say **** google

i still have faith in android and google might as well rename themselves G-Douche i mean come on and especially cuz i live in america and im subscribed to tmobile all i get it G-Douche software im keeping android but all i use are hero roms i might as well switch to sprint and buy the hero becuz i only need hero things and if google wants to beat iFag i suggest they stop whining the only reason to be mad is if their stuff is being marketed as someone elses or if someone sells their apps
