    Hi, regarding the edward snowden NSA spying revelations a few weeks back, and with this being an important issue for anyone who is awake, it transpires that the NSA has been writing code and inserting it into the android code.
    Not happy about this at all. What I do on my phone is though not illegal, none of anyone else`s business, and certainly not the business of big brother usa or uk governments.
    I run lbe privacy on my rooted s2 running ics but this ap is not compatible with jb, but a very good app called permissions manager is. What I would like to know is do the custom roms have this government sponsored nsa code removed, if anyone here was even aware it existed?

    Nice one sflannery07! :thumbup:

    As the article states, "While Android isn't developed in the open, upon release the code is all available."

    Since Android firmware has to be passed for use by each country's telecommunications bodies, you could have expected the Russians, Chinese, Japanese, Europeans, Asians, South Americans, Australasian's, Scandinavians, etc; to have picked up on this, so-called, malicious code. Not to mention the thousands of developers worldwide.

    I wouldn't put it past a certain fruit based company to be reveling in this.

    Still, everybody loves a good conspiracy theory. ;)

    Well... as the tapping is done on the routers and cables going in and out of the data centres of the services you use and the isps, you can do what you like with your rom or device and it won't make a blind bit of difference to anything,
