    Using CM9 on droid 3... Still an "alpha build" but surprisingly stable.

    Anyhow, even at this early stage its easy to see that Android 4 totally rocks!. cant wait until they get the camera working so I can use facial unlock.

    So your phone will unlock to a photo of you ? Reply

    it's supposed to unlock to your face--a face scan, basically.

    it hilariously didn't work at the ICS release party. Probably low/weird light conditions

    This insatiable need to have unknown outsiders inside your phone just so someone can have something different or worse: "experimental", really is what this is about. What have I learned with Froyo, Gingerbread and others? I can wait. I'd rather have a fully functional phone than waiting for the latest hack to make the camera, GPS, sensors, Reply

    "This insatiable need to have unknown outsiders inside your phone"

    Thats not quite whats up... The deal is carriers (all of them) put crappy apps o the phones and lock them down so you cant remove them. They run in the background and casue slowness. On top of all that, most of them suck and do nothing for you. OEM's do this on PC's as well, but they arent locked, so its easy enough to remove all of these items. On phones, that isnt the case.

    The cure - custom ROM's like Cyanogenmod. Its like putting a fresh install of windows rather than using your bloated Dell/HP/Lenovo image). Its not a "hack" to get the phone working, its in alpha stage (at least on the Droid 3 it is). Once they get the camera working it will go to beta, then release.

    Agreed though, considering you totally dont get why people do it, then you shouldnt do it. You should keep your cell company approved ROM.

    really? have you really indulged yourself in 'rooting and ROMs? because it's hard to believe somebody will think it as 'letting outsiders inside your phone' if you really know what's it all about. and if ever you succumbed to this 'insatiable need' anyway, just remember what you just said. I hope you don't choke. Reply
