‘Commitment to Openness and Freedom’

Andrew Melnizek, for Android Central:

Developer Unstable Apps just released their latest update to their ‘Easy Root’ application yesterday. Though, just as soon as it went up, Google quickly yanked it off the Android Market. The latest ‘Easy Root’ update (1.2.2), allowed owners running Froyo on the Motorola Droid, Motorola Droid X, and the Motorola Milestone to easily root their phones by a single touch of a button.

The developer of the app, “Nathan”, gave Android Central a statement:

When I first started getting word from people that Easy Root had been pulled from the Market I was surprised. I am sure that like many others I choose the Android platform for its commitment to openness and freedom.

That’s a good one.
