    Liking Android so far, and the DesireHD screen is pretty nice to look at.

    jailbreaking it is checking a box in settings called "allow installation of non-market apps"

    thats not what jailbreaking does though, it roots your ios device and allows access to the system files

    when you jailbreak your iphone or whatever you plug it into the computer and restart it, the jailbreak program changes the system files and installs a custom firmware. Sounds like the same thing (different process) to me

    Except you don't have to restart it and it pretty much just gives programs the ability to more advanced stuff

    And Rooting doesn't really mess with the firmware so much, I don't think.
    Since Android is already more open than iOS.

    thinking about upgrading my HTC Hero (CDMA) to a Motorola Milestone X2 (aka rebranded DROID X2). I can do it for $80 since I'm due for an upgrade anyway

    convince me otherwise

    You guys know that sound your computers make when you bluescreen? usually some sort of violent buzzing from the speakers.

    Well my phone likes to make that noise intermittently when i am listening to music, or when i am skipping through songs quickly.

    It's not the SD card cause it does this with several of them, any ideas?

    Edit: doesn't do this with video, or youtube.

    I thought you meant Milestone 2 for a sec and I was like that's hardly an upgrade

    I stand corrected and say go for it.

    Eh, I'd take it if it were like $20.

    I love my Windows Phone but not as much as I love Android.

    Ah well. August 2013 is upgrade time.

    CP doesn't necessarily have to have a victim, it's just that 99.9% of the time it does. The thing with pedos is that they've been demonized to be horrible no matter what, and I don't think that's the case.

    What actually happens is very similar but the end result and why you do it is very different.

    Android is very open when you get it, you just get a ROM on there for better power management and any customization features you prefer over what you had last. Jailbreaking is probably 99.9% used for pirating apps.

    Edited:

    theres a reason they dont call rooting jailbreaking and its because the two are very diffferent and not just in dumb semantics

    Not happy with CM9 anymore?

    Also, both sites work just fine for me. The download speeds are slow-ish but they work.
