Support when things go wrong.
I have been a follower of Cyanogen and XDA Devs for a few years, I am(was) also a programmer ( from assembler to VBA), I also have about 20 years experience in the PC/IT industry world.
I have also modded numerous phones... from CM and various other flavors.
BUT, there are times when even I am a little confused about what to do when things go wrong.... OK I know how to use forums and ask questions but it can sometime take a while to know who to trust. There are a lot of newbies on the forums with a lot of "newbie" advice..... dangerous.... I usually hang about the forums for a week or so before beginning any knew modding in order to pick up on whats good, bad and ugly.
I am not sure why but I get the feeling that releasing this kind of tool to the general public ( there are a lot of numpties out there) is not such a great idea. As long as everything goes OK, why not, but when the shit hits the fan, and it will, there will be several very angry people thinking these b****rds have ruined my phone. ( yes they will be wrong but they don't know that).
Most of the mods are non-destructive but that won't stop a lot of people panicking and no-one will be around to help them...
I am not ranting or complaining about CM or modding in general, I've used/followed them far too long for that, I am just imagining the scenarios that will undoubetdly unfold.
