    lol this guy is claiming he has clockworkmod for teh prevail AND has ported cayogenmod (not sure on wtf that is). i ask them for source and he replies with cant we are from xda. not really sure what being "from" xda means as i have an account there as well.

    why am i posting this? well considering myself interdpth and a few epic kernel devs have been working on the kernel source trying to figure out why it doesnt boot if we compile from source, yet here is this guy coming clear from left field saying not only did he port a custom recovery (which is basically a custom kernel set to load up a recovery program), but he also managed to port cyanogenmod (im gunna assume he meant cyanogenmod, the most used 3rd party rom for android) which is a gingerbread rom. which would then imply that he made a custom 2.6.35 kernel for this phone wrote the drivers for it and backported everything (if this sounds liek mumbo jumbo to you, just be aware that the htc hero on sprint took 5 months with 10 top notch devs working on getting froyo to work).

    now they claim that clockworkmod (its whom they talked to btw, i assume they mean koush...) is an apk. so congrats everyone just make sure to mail them 30 dollars to this address:

    in case things go missing here is a screen cap :)


    the moral of the story is simple kids, dont believe everything on the net. my two cents? a themed version of shabbymod with some of cm's apps thrown in to make it look like it.

    Thanks for sharing that clip Shabby!
    The poor kid cant spell but he is a guru!
    I dont know! LOL!
    Lots of scams come form Nigeria!
    My guess is that there aren't too many jobs there so they sit on the net all day thinking of scams!

    that's to much my hat goes off to you shabby I love the way you put him on the spot

    obviously you can tell reading that screen shot he hasn't a clue and I think you scared the crap out of him
