I think having it for a top level forum would be great. SUroot, you're absolutely right in what you're saying, and I think everything you've described could go perfectly in a subforum.
I like EarlyMon's idea here, because as we've discussed, modding/hacking/etc can encompass a very large area of topics. And subforums could be more Specialized (nonroot? root? adb? scripts? file/hex-editing? memory editing? roms? more?).
For example, without root a person could write:
- A script that renames all of a users mp3 files as "Artist - Song.mp3"
- Or a script for syncing Pictures on the sdcard with an online account
- Or a guide on installing Python on Android
All of those without any root permissions. The resulting subforums would depend on what is popular, and what is possible.
