I wanted to ask a question in the off-topic room and I didn’t know if it would be allowed. Does discussion of routing an android go against any rules on this forum?
I don't even know anymore, they've got shit so fucking overcomplicated, I don't know.
It's very easy, if you see a topic about BGT, simply don't reply to it.
If you're thinking about creating a topic about BGT, just don't.
Doing these things will cause all such topics to sink to oblivion.
Far as I know, it doesn't, as google's OS is far more decentralized than Apple's and more over, open source and does not fall under the same scope as jailbreaking, which Apple frowns down upon. Even that is technically not illegal if memory serves correct, though Apple would like you to think it is so that you don't jailbreak. Either one may null and void any warranty on any phone you decide to do either or to.

I don't see why it would be frowned upon, but as @2 said, who knows anymore? Also, it's rooting, not routing
well dictation sucks so yeah
No, its not against the rules and doesn't violate any license agreements or some such like it does on Apple devices.
As a passionate Android user I can say that discussions of rooting sure as hell don't violate any rules. Neither does jailbreaking, really. Apple can reject it all it wants, but the dmca wrote in an exemption that specifically allows jailbreaking, and in most regions it's not illegal. So as long as that doesn't change, we can discuss jailbreaking all we want, who gives a good crap if it hurts Apple's feewings.

@7, yep. And that extends to voice-activated devices, e.g.: the amazon echo and google home. https://www.federalregister.gov/documen … ss-control
