PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This past week and this weekend I've finally found the time to enter into the colorful world of custom Android ROMs. After figuring out just how insanely great and awesome ClockWorkMod Recovery is, I set about to figure out what the best Ice Cream Sandwich ROM is for the Galaxy SII. While the answer to that question became clear quite quickly, this answer also gave rise to a whole bunch of other questions.

Yet there is a CM9 build for the galaxy II, and not for any recent Motorola phones . That isn't by chance. I understand Samsung doesn't do everything for the CM team, but it doesn't /hasn't done nothing either.

Motorola has nothing to do with Samsung. If your wondering why Motorola has little dev support and no custom roms, perhaps you need to Google why no one likes Motorola.

*hint: because they lock and encrypt their bootloaders so developing isn't possible.

Correction: developing isn't easy. Despite all the locks, encryption, and other crap that Motorola puts in the way, devs have found ways around them on just about every Moto Android device.

People don't like Motorola because in the past ten years they haven't released a phone that doesn't fall apart in six months. My last (in both senses of the word) Motorola was the Motorola Backflip. I am insanely careful with my phones, compared to most people, and the hinge gave out on mine, which is apparently not a warranty issue. Mine lasted me a total of five months, nobody else I knew with a Backflip had theirs last more than four. Similarly, my customers' Milestones, Dexts and Backflips also lasted no more than six months. (To Americans, Milestones and Dexts may be better known as Droids and Cliqs).
