Then stop trying to do so.
I don't know what "open source" means? "I haven't done much programming"? As for most of your insults they are more likely to apply to you than me.
You demonstrate clear lapses in understanding the matter. There is a difference between apps and and an operating system. I claimed that if you had source for an IOS app you could read the source and build the app. That is an open source app. By definition. IOS is not open source and OSX is not open source, but openDarwin is open source and Apple contributes its changes to it. Not that that is relevant.
As a sidenote I personally think (i.e.. opinion, limited value only) that people who use download binaries are not really using open source because they do not know for sure that the binaries they are using match the source.
Given that unless you wrote and built your own compiler by hand, in machine code not using YACC or some such, you are still dependant on someone else's binary (http://scienceblogs.com/goodmath/2007/04/15/strange-loops-dennis-ritchie-a/) you are whistling dixie to say an app is not open source only because of the development system you use. Try thinking not just believing what you are told. "Religious" points of view are invariably invalid.
No, we have not been talking about who owns the device. I own my iPhone. Apple has access to root on my iPhone and it comes pre-pwned by Apple and my Telco (at a minimum). That is really not any different from any Googlebox. Either can be "rooted" by the user (at a cost and a risk to security), both are "rooted" by the OS creator and the Telco (at a minimum). I happen (at this point in time) trust Apple more than Google. Your mileage may vary.
I will not be responding further to this thread. You simple do not appear to have anything to contribute and I am fed up with your insults and apparent silliness. Nevertheless, I wish you well in the future.
