  • Should this be filed under Homebrew?
  • I can't wait for stuff like this to be possible on my Lumina 800!
  • Why would HTC drivers be on a rom for a Samsung device looking the change log it says removed HTC drivers wtf
  • I assume HTC drivers would let you run some HTC-specific apps.
  • And what will this give me that my sim free Omnia doesnt have? (appart from tethering which would be nice).
  • Homebrew apps, alternative marketplaces, ability to sideload apps to name a few.
    Plus, you get Tango before it's officially available.
  • Took the plunge and don't regret it
