    I've been nailing them every day or two and all that I've gotten so far are the usual canned responses so hopefully things are starting to get going. :D:thumbup:

    g60,

    I am not doubting your findings either however you did download the Sprint OTA so that would be different. The file that you should have downloaded is the on that has 1.14.652.0 as the description. That is the latest OTA that was released to the VM phones. It is possible that they made a mistake and listed it as the wrong carrier. I just noticed that you downloaded a file that has been there for sometime and the 1.14.652.0 is newer and never released for Sprint but it was for Virgin. That is my 2 cents and I could be wrong.

    Good catch! And if you check the names of the source zip files that are actually downloaded from htcdev.com you will see that they match the build numbers for the respective kernels as well:

    ........... VM ICS 1.14.652.0 Kernel: 3.0.16-g4211684

    ....... Sprint ICS 2.89.651.2 Kernel: 3.0.16-g294f767

    Note that the kernel and hboot versions did not change with the VM OTA.

    Yes. That matches the version on the VM kernel.

    Perhaps you could forward your comparison via the htcdev contact form and ask why that source doesn't match the config for the actual kernel with that build number, although I didn't see any place for attachments on that form. Maybe you could use an email address from one of the responses you've received instead?

    Someone should report HTC to the GPL police since they don't seem to be distributing the proper source code.

    j/k ;)

    I am so ticked. and sadly disappointed.... I hope you guys keep the emails flowing to HTC. That's our only hope. I really just don't understand this. I mean wouldn't it only take a couple of clicks of the mouse to just give us the damn code. WTF

  21. Guys, don't get too worked up about this. They will release the code; they have to. At least they understand that now, time was that companies would release GPL/Linux based products without realizing their legal obligations. Then when they did, they did not have a process in place to deal with it. Most companies now have a process for this. They can't just dump out their code to an FTP server; they have to comb through it to make sure they aren't releasing anything that they shouldn't be. That said it's not okay that this phone has been out as long as it has and no GPL release. But rest assured it will come.

    Maybe you guys should re-inform them that the GPL agreement requires releasing the source(especially if someone wants it), and legal actions can be taken against them(we probably wouldnt actually take legal action, but the threat might wake them up).

    We should also inform them that when they do release the code, it needs to be working. Because I'm pretty sure non functioning code is also a GPL violation.
