They have their own reasons for that but let's not get it twisted.
It's like a car manufacture that won't let you look under the hood of your own car. One guy comes along and says I can stick my screwdriver between the hood and the latch and jimmy your hood open for free but you might need some touch up paint after I'm done and another guy(Sunshine app) saying I have your model specific tool that allows your own in car hood release to work the way all other car hood latches work and it's permanent but will cost you $25! I know which way I'm going but some people need free and I respect that . Just don't be mad that you've got touch up paint and I don't.
This particular exploit is hard. The way I know that is these guys keep "begging" for competition from the indignant seats and it's crickets every time! Keep it up and we're going to end up like some other phone manufacturers customers that have zero options for S off and there are some. Then $25 will seem like nothing because that's what we will have, NOTHING!
Also, with text not speech this post could be read as being "mad" with all the exclamation points but it's absolutely not. It's more like" exasperated". Everything on the internet is not free. Thank you Sunshine devs for giving me a choice. That's all this is is an option.
You hit the nail on the head thoctor. $25 is a bargain for what Sunshine does. I often see people complain about having to pay the $25 (it's too expensive, it should be free, etc.). Did they ever consider the amount of time that Beaups, JCase and crew (if any) put in to this exploit? Obviously it's not very easy to accomplish because no one else is doing it. Maybe instead of complaining, they should try writing their own exploit. I myself am on a fixed income and have purchased Sunshine for 2 different phones, and when I get my next HTC One, I'll purchase Sunshine again. I appreciate the fact that Beaups and JCase are generous enough to share their hard work with us.
I'm done with my soapbox.
Thanks Beaups and JCase for keeping our HTC One M7 relevant.
Edit: For anyone that would like to root, s-off and unlock the HTC One M7 without a computer, just send me a PM and I'll tell you what tools I used to accomplish this.
