Submission + - Android mod community lashes back at closed phones (androidpolice.com)

Daneurysm writes: Ever since this story, which claims the bootloader of the upcoming HTC Evo3D smart phone is crypto-signed, appeared this morning the modding and developer community in the Evo3D forum at XDA-Developers.com has been in an uproar. Staging protests on Twitter, HTC's face book page, HTC's own community forum and countless message boards. HTC has supposedly made a statement claiming to have their bootloader policy under review. With over 1000 people joining the facebook protest an hour I'm curious to see where this goes.

What this country needs is a dime that will buy a good five-cent bagel.
