    Good point about the leaked os stuff. Dont forget there are people releasing hybrid version of oses on this forum. So even if you claimed this leaked Skype was a modified one. The community seems to be ok with modifying the os. Why all of a sudden are we talking about distribution rights and legality? It all seems lame to me.

    So im thinking they decompiled the apk with a program called apktool,edited the androidmanifest.xml changed the minversion/sdk etc.. then recompiled it and packaged it. lol if anyone wants to try this,they are more than welcomed but here is where i've hit a wall.

    Then you must know what it is like for an app of yours to be pirated?

    I don't want to spend the time either. But if someone does, as with all prior precedence we listed, the community should welcome it with open arms. And I of course will leach off the hard work of others!

    The free ones they can bar off the play store all they want. I see no moral quandary.

    Maybe for some that is okay. But I think permission should first be received if it was to be distributed.

    Use case example:

    Free app on market links to market for paid download. If somebody takes that app and distributes it in a closed system (ie: Chinese device pre loaded without permission) then that app will not be able to generate revenue to link to the paid version.

    I know full well that some developers distribute their apps outside of markets and allow others to distribute as well. The problem is some people do not have permission to do it.

    You are right to have your own position. I am just pointing out the CrackBerry unofficial position on these things. That is let it all fly. You can have your own opinion. Yes. But to all of a sudden shift CrackBerry policy. That is what is bothering me.

    Hmm you might be right on part of that. It could be that CrackBerry may have been asked not to release the app?

    Censorship, backtracking, lies, deceit, selfishness, this thread has got it all

    OP should take some time to learn what it means to contribute to a forum, maybe look at lbfe. Now there is a member who is worth his weight in gold. This thread is just a giant joke.

    Also, when's the sideloading forum getting censored out?

    IMHO if op had not posted, and Bla1ze had discovered how to extract the bar first, we all would have had it by now.

    Op has the idea that distributing the bar would be unethical or immoral or something, and that is fine for him personally, but as others have pointed out, not posting the bar represents a strange policy shift from within the crackberry community. Unfortunately this has somehow scared Bla1ze from doing the right thing for the community.

    I think Bla1ze was trying to do the OP a favor and helping take the heat off him after he dug himself a hole on here
