I am so sick of hearing this. This is as bad as the iSheep. Not many people want to, nor can afford to, brick their phones and void their warranties just to install a customer ROM. Rooting and custom ROM's should only be done by enthusiasts who know the risks and won't complain when something messes up and can afford to pay $500-$600 for an off contract phone replacement.
For as bad as the iPhone is, there is one thing Apple does right and Google and Microsoft need to take a lesson from and that is keeping control of the OS and the distribution of it. A carrier doesn't want to allow Apple to control iOS and it's distribution? They don't carry the iPhone. Well, Google has enough clout now, especially with them owning Motorola that they can do this. And to insist to getting rid of carrier bloat ware or at least making it uninstallable.
[citation][nom]ddpruitt[/nom]You misunderstand, it's not an Android problem it's a Verizon problem. Verizon is horrible at keeping devices updated, remember Verizon has delayed updates for all of it's phones including the Iphone. If you want good service don't go with Verizon.[/citation]
It's actually both. Took forever to get ICS for the Bionic, got it 3 weeks ago when it should have been delivered months ago. Motorola made it a flagship phone and then moved on to the Razr's and the Droid 4 and such. While we have been promised JB, who knows if and when we will ever get it. And then when Motorola decides to work on it, they will have to submit several builds to Verizon for approval. And I have a friend with Sprint and they don't seem much different.
