    i was looking through rom manager and i saw that they added a new version of UD on it. did the creator *cough* thief *cough* give Koush permission or request for it to be added. i checked it on his site and he said that if it is on Rom Manager not to download it because it has been tampered with.

    im really starting to get the idea that this kid is a complete pr!ck and also that he is doing a lot of things to get attention to his rom from drama rather than inovation. any ideas?

    p.s.-- dont worry im not loading his rom. i don't respect him enough to try it out haha

    I was thinking the same thing the other day. I saw that on their site too and I realized that some other roms had been pulled but UD was still there. Makes no sense. But I'm with you. I don't support UD either. As much as I want to try their rom I know what they did and I like CM. They just need to stand up and be men about it.

    Pete had a good write up on his Twitter about what bd changed and he's proven that its still cm based butthe start-up scripts are from bb and the default boot animation is from cm

    From what I understand that is what he was doing before. The issue that CM had was not that he was using his stuff (because let's face it, the purpose of Android is to be open source), it was because he used the stuff and didn't acknowledge CM.

    When asked, UD denied it... Whatever... I am in the process of cooking up my own ROM; I am just taking down very good release notes with a long list of acknowledgements.

    And on top of that he gets people to skin things for his rom so that it looks original. I think his dictionary is missing the word "original"

    f*ck UD their a bunch of clowns. Give credit where credit is due. I wish UD could get banned from the android world forever. I'm with Koush and Pete and will never go to the fake side

    its even funnier because on his site he said that he is going to have tutorials to make themes and that he will support the base work to work off of. he even said that there is no need to give him credit..... hmm .... i wonder why???? oh yea, because it isn't his work anyway

    If you like the rom, just stick with it. Us vets just don't like the guy nor support him because of his ways. We all know the ROM works fine.
    But yes, he's stealing stuff from other ROM's.
    Get BuglessBeast (BB) 1.0/1.1
    Or
    CyanogenMod

    Those to are the best.

    Wow, I didn't know what exactly went down. I knew the BD section on droidforums.net got locked out, but didn't know why. I'm using UD Nex Gen, but this is almost compelling reason enough to jump to BB or Cyanogen

    Don't worry man. If you like it, use it. I just wouldnt donate anything to him. If you feel that you want to change rom's, there are so many out there that would probably fill that spot for you. It all comes down to him playing dirty and getting donations and credit for work that he is taking credit for and not giving credit to others when it's due.

    We really need a android central rom developer. I feel like we are the stoners at a community college and alldroid (I guess merely droid in this case) is Harvard and droid forums is like the rich kids who have trust funds haha. No offense anyone (hell I'd rather hang out with a bunch of stoners then snotty rich kids haha) but I just wish we had something that put android central on the map. I love this forum because its not too big and not too small, everybody here is extremely helpful and with all of info I find here it has made my droid even better. I don't think I frequent any other forum than I do this one.

    There I go again going off topic haha sorry guys.

    I liked it, but only because it was the first one I used and it is easier to update that then it is to do a full conversion. But there is always the integrity issue, can't let those without integrity win in an open source world.
    And with that said, I've already switched over to BB

    hmm, cant believe all this stuff is still going on...i was using UD back when he was still on alldroid, thought he was wrongly accused and followed him to df. after he got accused again, with proof, i dropped it and now i'm switching between pete and cm, which both are very awesome ROMs.

    To the original question...i think koush said he was putting UD on rom manager cause many of BD's followers bought premium version of rom manager for the sole purpose to download the UD rom because BD touted it and endorsed it. People felt wronged when BD dropped support of rom manager, so koush put it on to appease everyone. BD does not support the rom on rom manager though and advises people not to download it from that.

    i know alot of people want to play morality police. but alot of people are making this out as they're directly involved in it.

    im using UD new rom. i like the way it runs. i like the way it looks. love that bottom tab with the word droid on it. not really into all the nexus themes, if i wanted a nexus theme i wouldve gotten a nexus.

    i agree that maybe he shouldve given credit to some people but nobody can say its stolen. because its open source.

    the UD rom runs smooth as heck, ive tried alot of roms in a short period of time to find one that ran smooth and looked right for my taste. and this was it.

    but to each his/her own. but other then those directly involved why are so many people taking this personal? IMO those people are whats made it drama.

    I understand where your coming from. Each person has their own code of ethics so its hard to have a clear answer as to if sombodyshould download the rom.

    Everybody has the right to do anything they want with their phone. I am just saying that I will not use his rom due to the fact he did not credit the person whose work he used in creating his rom. To me that is just immoral.

    Stolen can be interpreted in different ways depending on how you view the situation. Did he physically take cyanogen and petes roms away from them, no. Did he steal their ideas and use the code they created and used without a single thing stating that he used their code, yes. And the worst part is that he denied all of the allegations against him. He lied.
    Nobody here has told anyone not to use the rom. We justvsaid said that we are not using it and that we don't agree with what he is doing. We are not judging anybody who is or wants to use UD.

    I love what you said bitfix about the code of ethics. Cause that's what its about. I wouldn't want anyone stealing my ideas without giving me some kind of cred. Its like patent infringement which is ILLEGAL. If you don't have a problem with it jimenez that's on you. But a wise man once said, if you don't stand for nothing you'll fall for anything.
