    Motorola and Samsung, two large manufacturers, both try to make it very difficult for developers to create custom roms for. HTC, a smaller manufacturer, tries to attract customers by NOT making it extra difficult for developers to create roms for their phones, such as CM7.

    Since LG is a large manufacturer, do you think they will also do stuff to their phones to make it extra difficult for developers to create custom roms for it, or do you think think they will be similar to HTC?

    This question has been asked several times already. Nobody really knows the answer - my guess is it will be harder to do than with HTC - how much harder remains to be seen.
