I think only Google didn't void warranty in this case.
HTC change is policy 1,5 year ago : http://dl4.htc.com/Web_materials/Man..._May1_2016.pdf
Yes, indeed. With this behaviour, they're sabotaging the development of custom ROMs during the "active" phase of the device. After the manufactorer sw support stops, there is nothing you can switch to, and you basically have a swiss cheese like device with security holes. Yay.
And so much for sustainability ... That basically forces you to buy a new phone much sooner.
In general I despise this trend, that manufacturers even void the warranty for hardware defects after you modify the software. This is crazy.
I hate this patronising on the mobile devices.
Why can't we have open computing plattforms, like we have with desktops and notebooks ?! ...
Anyway, thank you for the confirmation.
Is there a list with manufacturers which are closed and which are more open ?
I had negative experiences with Sony and Motorola.
I've read that Samsung locks it's devices as well.
OnePlus seems to have a fair policy.
Are there any others ?
