    They are the most custom friendly we have a ton of roms and unlocking the boot loader takes access to a PC which they assume everyone who wants to hack the phone has. I don't I had to use a friends laptop to unlock my bootloader and install ClockWorkMod Touch Recovery. I just have no use for a laptop other than the occasional need to root a phone or like this bootloader ordeal I just use a friends laptop
