    For those who remember us original devs, I've long stopped modding devices. I just thought after hearing some bad news that I would pass it along to our fellow friends. Keith Keever, aka Wetbiker7 has passed away. I don't know any of the details and would like his memory to be forever in this forum. After talking to him over the years, things had gotten rough for Keith and I myself have prayed for him whenever he had asked me to. When my mother passed he made sure to text me everyday to check on me. Literally thousands of miles away and he'd find time to check on his friend. To all that knew him, he would flash anything! Brick or not! And this is way back in the Froyo 2.2.2 days. All I ask is for a moment to remember. If you had any good things in mind, please share.


    Thanks, J6Remy.


    Rest in peace brother.

    If any admin could make this a little more, could you keep this thread and move it to somewhere where it'll been seen.

    Oh man, that's sad :(
    I've interacted a couple times with him here and there; didn't know him like you did but really sad to see a long time member pass away:(
    Sorry to hear this bro.
    Perhaps I'll move this into the lounge area with a permanent redirect so others can still see the thread here and get redirected to the Lounge where more folks may see it, cool?

    Edit: his profile page:

    Folks who find it in the Samsung Prevail forums will get auto directed to its new location ;)

    Edit: temporarily stickied the thread in the Samsung Prevail forum so it won't fall off the page there.

    My sympathies as well and thanks for letting people know. I hadn't crossed paths with him (I have old and cheap phones!) but appreciate all of those who share their time and talent to help others. RIP, Keith, and my thoughts and prayers are with your friends and family. May we all be so well missed.

    I had the Prevail for a few months and Wetbiker was big part of that forum.

    RIP Wetbiker

    I remember when I first started out in the realm of Android rooting and whatnot (with the Prevail) and he was one of many around helping people. Will certainly be missed

    Thanks for letting everyone know. And thanks Wy for the link to this thread.

    I met him thanks to my 2nd Android phone, the HTC One SV. I was having all kinds of problems, he was so helpful. And then the S3, he was the king of roms and mods lol. He will be truly missed.

    My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

    RIP Keith :(

    In honor of Wetbiker7 or better known as my good friend Keith I'm posting this suggestion. Let us all change our avatars for 24 hours to any joker or jester avatar you can find, as our moment of silence for our lost friend?
