    I'm glad they did this. Private forum? More power to them, considering the amount of bashing they took over there.

    I'm amazed at how much these developers get beat up, considering they're trying to help the whole community benefit with no profit in mind for themselves.

    It's sad when people have nothing to offer up other than flames and insults in order to pump up their own deflated egos while hiding behind a keyboard... but that seems fairly prevalent on the internet. Etiquette just goes out the door for a few bad apples.. it's easy to be rude to people when they're not right in front of you, ready to punch you in the face :)

    OK, end of rant... good luck to all the developers! I appreciate your efforts as do many others here.

    Do you have any speculation as to when the Eris will be rooted?

    Speculation? No, I dont think that would be helpfull to anyone.
    I dont want this to beecome a 2.x update type scenario.
    I will forward and update as progress is made, but to be honest it could happen anytime.
    We have great Devs working on different avenues of attack/exploit, so speculation would only bring drama, ya know what I mean?

    Hey, now... that sounds like rational thinking... on the internets!

    You, sir, are a revolutionary.


    But seriously, keep up the good work... if I could, I'd buy you all a round of coffee or red bull or whiskey... whatever'd help the job along :)
