If you had any bad words about Samsung’s relationship with the underground Android development scene, bite your tongue now. The handset manufacturer just delivered a brand new Samsung Galaxy S II to CyanogenMod developer AtinM with the express purpose of getting a version of their latest CM7 software up and running on Sammy’s latest flagship device. It seems to be part of the continuing ebb and flow of reactions to hacking and modding Android devices and software. Almost weekly we learn of a manufacturer either loosening or tightening their grip on locked-down smartphones. Major ups to Samsung for this one. As Atin says in his tweet, “you will not hear me bad-mouth Samsung again.”
