Hello my name is Mike but you can call me Hashcode.
I’m a fairly new face to Android development but not a new developer. Normally, limited by the restrictions of business based programming, Android phones provide a nice break from the reality of .. well .. real life.
My Android journey began with an OG Droid which was converted into an over-clocked AOSP Gingerbread machine (eventually). Everything I knew of Android grew from that. I would watch and wait for developer news and updates all the while wondering how everything worked. So eventually you start to take things apart. Check out code. Install an Ubuntu partition on the laptop. You know the typical Friday night date stuff.
So, times change, phones are doing more and the OG just wasn’t cutting the mustard.
Enter 2011, and the Droid 3. It’s a fantastic phone. Tons of potential. And a locked boot-loader, with a fierce will not be rooted. Motorola had done it’s job well.. or had it?
Thanks to drbliss we have a rooted phone that can do our bidding… Be at our beck and call! We are finally the master’s of our own fates. Leaders of the .. sec… phone’s ringing.
Back, where was I? Right, so, I learned something while spending many nights in heated discussions over what to try next and where to look for help:
- We have a great community.
- We’re all different and we use our phones for different things.
- We all want the very best that our phone can offer.
I’ve met some very cool people and we don’t have to stop there. Lot’s more to come for the Droid 3 and others phone as well.
