+ - Motorola G2 Detects When Rooted, Reinstalls Stock ->

Submitted by RandyDownes
RandyDownes (1888122) writes "And you thought the Droid X's kill switch was bad. Motorola's new Droid G2 can detect when it's been rooted and responds by reinstalling the factory OS, complete with MotoBlur and all the bloatware that comes with it. This seems like a violation of the Apache license Android is licensed under and is especially ironic given Eric Schmidt's recent statement about not requiring carriers to give consumers the option to install Google's own version of the OS. Schmidt called it a violation of the principles of open source."
