    Let us know what you find out. Pretty sure it's not 2.1, but whatever, curious nontheless.

    No, that site is simply there so they can fulfil their obligations to the GPL which requires one to make available the source code of any program licensed under the GPL that has been modified. So all the changes they made to the Android UI are there, but things like device drivers are not, since they are closed sourced.

    Unlike the folks at HTC, who release everything, which is how mods are possible on those phones and why its so difficult on this phone.

    So basically, we need to hire a few goons to kidnap an insider techie and then apply a little pressure so he can give up the goods?

    Sounds good to me, when do we start.

    Let me call my people...

    YouTube - Lulu talking on the phone

    The screen is frozen again! Perils of 1.5 - I give up :mad:

    ***This would be funny if it weren't so darned frustrating! The question is, do we have to start a class action to get an update? Now, I'm about at that point to tell the truth. Nothing new even supports 1.5 - We're toast.

    The thought did cross my mind... I'd guess Sammy's boilerplate is pretty impenetrable as far as that goes, but what do I know. (Not much).
