    3) Customization is completely different issue than releasing the phone's firmware which is purely piracy and violation of copyright laws.
    It's like porting from Nokia to Nokia. That doesn't seem so illegal to me.

    One NOTABLE and typical exception clause to copyright holders right to prevent copying (internationally) typically states that limited amount of infringement is allowed:

    "To improve compatibility for personal use".

    This particular case definitely falls under that, as they are aiming to improve compatibility with various widgets.


    Granted it doesn't exist in every country, but calling it "piracy" is akin to calling train driver "murderer" if someone throws themselves under a train.

You are also asking people to donate money to you, this makes it even more serious. I would not be surprised if police is knocking your door someday.
    are you cop, fed or what?
    so customization is ok, but porting isn't?
    damn.. I WOULDN'T BE SURPRISED IF YOU HAVE INSTALLED CRACKED WINDOWS OR SOME SOFTWARE..

    remember that we can use win 7 on 256 mb ram pc but it will be slow. 5800 couldn't handle s^3, or mby i'm mistaken?
