PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Due to their very nature, custom Android ROMs have root enabled by default. Up until relatively recently, installing custom Android ROMs was a thing geeks did, and as such, this wasn't much of a problem. However, over the past few days, I've found out just how easy installing custom ROMs and modifying them really is (I'm running this one until CyanogenMod 9 is ready for the SII), and it seems like more and more regular users are engaging in the practice as well. Suddenly, having root enabled becomes a security liability.

I agree with the sense comment.. utterly shocking in recent versions of sense. I have so far however been very impressed with the changes that HTC have incorporated into their ICS versions of Sense on the new range of phones (one). It so far beats the SGS2 for ICS + custom skins...

Having said that I run CM9/AOSPX on my handsets...
