Am I the only one that remembers that Samsung hired Steve Kondik from CyanogenMod back in August 2011 and fell over themselves in the press bragging about how developer friendly they were?
That at that point, they were encouraging CM development for their phones?
Anyone? Beuller? Anyone?
Bling, bling, dollar, dollar bill, y'all.
In 2011, Android times were different and 2010 saw the SGS with a lot of problems. A year later, Samsung saw the demand for rapid updates and more feature choices so they opened up a lot.
Today, Android and Samsung aren't struggling for domination, they have it.
Where's the rest of the dollar bills that haven't been scooped up?
Not with rooters spreading the word to non-rooting friends.
It's in enterprise sales - virgin territory.
