This is already said on our port thread "It shouldnt be necessary to mention but well, Paranoid-Settings is meant for official paranoid android only or ports that stay true to our vision. it is not meant to be included in other roms or kangs - unless we give permission. this is our good name that people pull through the mud when they mix it with conflicting source..."
Yet, some ROMs are using ParanoidPreferences (paprefs from now on) apps without any permission from us. Paprefs, it's a CLOSED source app. It's our main difference from ANY other rom, it's what identify us, "our good name", as Paul says (everything else is easily kangable by anyone, it seems). I ask then to everyone from ParanoidAndroid project or anyone who uses it, to keep this vision true, and ask to everyone who uses the app without permission to remove them from their builds, and use the opensource snippet
(again, has been said, is a file writer / reader app, aint be that so hard to write?, seriously, takes minutes to do). This has been talked to XDA mods, and we will become serious about this. Please spread the word.
I also want to say, that GPL apps are meant to be open and any modification made on it must be open sourced as well. Our ParanoidWallpapers is a clear example, but I've seen some ROMs using it, and no source available. Remind this is a XDA rule!
