    i was just looking at this after reading the update on cyanogenmod.com seems pretty cut and dry to me. UD=Douche
    its funny to watch the lower right corner and see all the people popping up to view the sheet.

    I had to look it up a couple of days ago, as I was reading all the tweets about the UD thing, because I didn't know what it meant either.

    From Kang - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
    Kang, a term Android (operating system) developers use to insult one another or to describe a screw up. (i.e. You have been kanged; That kernel error was a bad kang.)

    Thank you! I could not find the definition on google define or urbandictionary so I figured it had to be some sort of inside joke or something.

    So I understand he took without asking for at the very least taking without giving credit. But why does his rom's seem to work better and faster than yours. I have used both and UD just seems to work. UD also seems to have a better overall package. I don't want to insult you, your team is a great team of programmers but UD seems to have captured the hearts of a lot of people. Just a suggestion, why not work together. You and your team develop and BD can package everything together and make it work optimally. Can't wait for your response to this.

    The code is open source-- the developer WANTS others to use it. He only asks for credit for his hard work. Blackdroid (or whatever) is using his code and claiming it's his own. That's a no-no.

    If he used the code and gave credit, there would no drama.

    Lol I don't work for or contribute to CM but thanks. What version of what ROM's did you use btw? Only UD10 is a rip off of CM so anything else doesn't matter. And you need to be using a new version of CM also.

    I love the description for UD in Rom Manager: "Another CyanogenMod based theme!"

    Well, this is nuts for sure. For awhile I stayed out of the drama wars. First Alldroid vs Sholes. Then Alldroid vs Blackdroid. Blackdroid migrates really quickly to DF. So for awhile I figured maybe Alldroid was the problem (no I no longer think that). I tried BD for the first time at UD 8.0. Then 8.6. 9.0,9.8, and 10.0. In the meantime I had used the Cyanogen from 5.0.5.3 on to .7 too. Then with UD 9.8 there was some rumblings of using improperly credited work. It came full force after I did UD 10.0. This is a shame, because for me the UD stuff just plain works smoother, faster, and there is "something" there I liked. I don't know what it is, but I could see it was there.

    My first reaction to CRP's post of the spreadsheet was "...well so what, there is half of the stuff there that CM does not even have, so why the give credit hubub?" Then I went back over the list a bit, and while it is mostly Greek to me, it does seem obvious that the real meat and muscle is the yellow highlighted items. Those all matched, and while coincidences can be shown to exist, they don't exist in those numbers in any single place. So something on the wrong side of fishy has to be going on.

    So, last night I went back to CM 5.0.5.7. No, I still do not like it as well as I did the UD from 9.0 onwards, but the CM does more than I am capable of doing with it, and I can live just fine with that. I may well try Bugless Beast too, but until something happens with Ultimate Droid to make things right with everyone, I am done with it.

    The still locked down Blackdroid section, leaving us to get information elsewhere (in just about all of the other android based forums) does not help me. The shut up and wait from DF does them no good. I also think the moderation of that forum could have/should have been done better than it was.

    I am pretty much done with this issue. If someone has any questions about it I will accommodate but the irc stuff has been getting out of control recently.
