No, he'd like that.
Something else.
Same basic principle though.
:)
I am now wondering why I didn\'t just buy an actual Android phone.

Well, can't do a whole lot, but his address is really registered to Derek Borris but people finder did not find a derek borris from troy michigan.
EDIT
Ooooo oooo, i found something, if we can link him to the patched idroid images,"doubtful" we wont have to worry, apple will be all over his ass for redistributing copyrighted zephyr files and marvel possibly too

loooooooool

I was browsing this side seconds ago. Its the worst website I ever visited xD And when I tried to close this tab a js-message poped up informing me about their special offer. Besides to that, a mens voice talked to me oO

Worst side ever!

By the way, I visited this side to see how they try to sell planet's/our stuff, not to buy it!

Technically, we could shut him off right now with the information we have.
What?  No you can't.  It's derivative of iDroid, which is derivative of Android, which is derivative of Linux, which is licensed under the GPL.  Have you even read the GPL before? What he's doing is perfectly legal, and in fact encouraged by the FSF.

You might be able to get him on the logos, though.

Oh, I was not aware of that.

We should contact Apple, though, not the dev team.  If only to screw with him instead of to help Apple.

*sigh*. Yes, I have read the GPL. Way more times that I ever wanted to. What does the GPL have to do with them distributing a copyrighted newspaper article? Furthermore, he's distributing prepackaged bundles with proprietary software from both Apple and Marvell. Also, he's promising this on the web site:
Code: [Select]
- The Best Product Guarantee in the Industry
- No Technical Knowledge Required
- Premium 24/7 Customer Support
- Works with all iPhone versions
There are no guarantees. You need technical knowledge (AKA half a brain). There is no customer support. It doesn't work with all iPhone versions. All he does is providing links to the two copyrighted newspaper articles. And no, I didn't buy it to know that. The members' area login is vulnerable to MySQL injection. Try it yourself, it's not rocket science...

What's up with the attitude BTW?

Last time I checked, you needed a license to distribute the Linux kernel commercially. I could be wrong though.
#iphonelinux - General iDroid/openiBoot help and support | #idroid-dev - Contact a developer here | #iX - help and support for iX, an Ubuntu distribution for the iDevices | #iOS - all iOS and iPhone support goes here

All located on irc.osx86.hu

No, of course not.  :lol: The General Public License is granted to everyone who reads it.

Legally, borderline or illegaly? ;)

Legally: I've been mailing alot of abuse@'s. No one is answering. I suppose we could poke a bit at Apple, but that could backfire onto iDroid project.

Borderline: We could pay the guy a visit and ask him to cut it out.

Illegal: A well aimed DROP TABLE would be nice... ;)

Where will we hide the body?

I think we should report this to Apple, anonymously.  Maybe pretend (without directly saying it) that we were ripped off by them.
