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.

Does not bother me at all since Cyanogen does not support my phone.... Am I bitter? yes and no... I assumed that the Galaxy S4G was close enough to the original Galaxy S and the Nexus S that it would be supported....Nice education I had on marketing names vs. technology in the phone....Plus, I should have checked the damn supported device list on their site.
