Be Careful When Tampering With the Motorola Droid X: It Could Brick Itself | Android Phone Fans
WOW! Just wow! Good thing I'm so happy with my droid already...which is "hacked" just beautifully!
Thanks for the info!
That is interesting. I wonder why they decided to brick the phone? Wouldn't it seem more appropriate to simply set the phone to have a notification of voided warranty instead of completely bricking the phone?
I may have read the article wrong but when it bricks your phone you then have to take it to Verizon who can un-brick it using "special" equipment and software. IMHO it means that they can then void your warranty in the system and charge you a hefty service fee for that "special" service. In my experience special service = expensive service.
