And to make things worse, people do it so that can get appreciation even if it's not their work!
I understand the brick issue is huge, and the help is needed, but don't make a new thread when there is one already, someone may miss some important info.
Indeed. I came from the Motorola Defy, a legendary powerhouse with its 800 MHz OMAP3, 512 MB RAM and 2GB storage which - mostly due to the diligent work of a group of developers centred around Quarkx2k - went all the way from Gingerbread to KitKat without any support from the vendor and without ever unlocking the boot loader. I was one of the developers for that device and as such was generally satisfied with the level of the discourse in the Defy section of this site. Unfortunately the same can not be said for the Whyred section... from the multitude of 'bro
' posts through the karma whoring plagiarisers to the number of 'mine no workee fix it
' single-line commands I must say I'm disappointed in the direction the XDA forum went.
To all you out there who feel accused by my writing, please realise that developers work for free, in their spare time and share their work freely. If you expect instant service find a paid support channel, if you want to gain fame by posting someone else's work as your own realise that the only fame you'll gain will be that of a wanna-be. If English is not your first language, fine - it isn't for me either - but do try to write something at least resembling that language or find a forum in a language you are more proficient in. Some words are just too obnoxious to be used, 'bro' being a prime example of such. Just drop 'm, they don't serve any purpose.
