    I don't understand why people have to act like 2 year olds. How can anyone in all good conscience take credit for someone else's work? If they have a brain they know the other person isn't going to sit back and get crapped on. They are gonna tell everyone they can "Hey, this guy is stealing my work".

    I guess it all comes down to wanting credit so they look like "Mr. Bada$$" and feel better about themselves. All I know is if this kind of drama keeps up, no one is gonna want to work with anyone else in fear of theft and development for the X is gonna come to a halt.

    its not just happening with the Droid X
    i imagine it is happening on all devices
    look at kejar his gummycharged was kanged multiple times, and he has said he is going to start checking each rom that comes out for the charge to make sure its not a rip off of his.

    its becoming a terrible thing for android when you have devs who just want to take credit for everything. but the guy did say that framework got it to boot so he was doing something right, maybe he just needed the base to get started and didnt feel he needed someones help in developing the rom anymore, i dunno who these guys are, i just hope that everything gets straightened out so that we can enjoy another great rom

    So dumb question, but if I took, say a CM7 and modified it to my own devices. Then, put it out there for others to use, but expicitly state that it's just a modified version of CM7 and I'm not taking credit for it. Is that frowned upon still? Not to say I can do this, just wondering.

    I think as long as credit is given where it is due most people are happy.

    Yeah, as long as you don't claim something as your own without actually putting in all the hard work to create something such as CM7. Basically what they did was take what was already made and tweaked it a little bit and claimed it as their own without acknowledging anyone else's hard work; I think that's what annoyed people.

    I know. But for our purposes/needs, because we are on the DX, is why I specifically said the DX.

    No banning from me. I agree with you, OP. Kanging is pretty low down. It's good that you make a discussion about it. It's good that folks know about it so they can pay for the apps created by the "good guys" who get permission and give credit and not the "bad guys" who wrongly take credit in order to profit.

    I've heard this word "kanging " before. What's the origin of this term?

    I hate to revive and old thread, but this is completely wrong. The way Webst3r wrote this was unclear and made me look like I "kanged" his work. I did not touch any of his work, I cut him off because I felt he was not contributing anything(edit: aka doesnt know what he's doing). He just wanted his name on it. I was doing my own work, and when someone told him someone else(not me, some other random group) had it "working" he quit and I kept on working. Then turns out I got it working, and he wanted to come back and get it first for "testing" I said no, and he started b***hing and made this blog post. He wrote this to make me look like the bad guy, there are always 2 sides of the story.
