Exactly. It's not like these pledges are being held in escrow by XDA Financial Services.

I guess I can't say for sure that they don't work, but I doubt highly that many people stand behind their pledges. For me, I just see it as encouraging the devs to monetize their efforts. That leads to a little economy where we have to pay for the freedom to utilize our devices to the fullest. Devs work hard and deserve to be thanked (i.e. donations) but as soon as it becomes normal to start a bounty, some devs could start holding exploits private and essentially selling them when the price is high enough. That's more like extortion to me. I admit, that's a hypothetical, but I've been around long enough to see what money does to people. Look at net neutrality. Before long, we'll have ROMs released on a subscription basis. Root kits will be available for the low, low price of $14.99.

I'm all for donating when you appreciate a dev's work, but the bounty system has always bothered me. And in the end, there are enough good developers that will find ways to free our phones because it's all about freedom in the end.



He got paid almost all of it. Over 80 percent was paid within weeks.

guys.. my comment about sprint root was a joke to see how much interest there was in the root and see what kinda reactions there'd be.

BUT.. some of the guys working on this need g3 devices... for root.. for unlock... for future exploits down the road...

root for any unrooted G3's will come.. I can promise that. But.. it will most likely not be an update to ioroot specifically.. and I may not be the one to post...
SO..
the couple users who did donate for a future Sprint G3 root.. I will be refunding. But I do thank you for your enthusiasm. hold onto it and use it when root IS posted to ensure the G3 continues to see great work(moar r00t? moar unlox? moar hax? r0mz.. zzz). there is a great group of ppl poking at this.. but as i mentioned.. we all dont have G3's.. and some will have to buy out of pocket.. just for the sake of hacking and contributing to community. I think I've slept a total of 8 hrs the past 3 days(not complaining!).. trust me.. this is being looked at and worked on.

keep your eyes on our twitters... @ tylerfixer (iomonster/thecubed/insertnamehere) .. @ teamandirc (jcase) .. i dont think shelnutt2 or beaups use twitter.. and me @ utoprime

keep the assumptions to a minimum.. and please be patient(no not "months" patient)..

and who knows.. maybe someone new will step up and surprise us all.

Yea, YMMV with this. The LG G3 wasn't supposed to go be given the extra $50 off but since I got mine early the mass Best Buy corporate email wasn't sent out yet. Most of the employees had no idea it excluded the device and were just doing manually overrides. It was until later that the error was discovered. But to get the device for $99 is still an awesome deal for a newly released higher end smartphone. Totally worth it.

That would be why they couldn't get me the $50 GC on Friday lol - they just applied the credit though

I'm confused as to if this works on Sprint variant now. The posts say it isn't but the front page has the Sprint model number listed. Working or not?
