We’ve just gotten a tip that Motorola is asking members of their forums to post links to modded Cliq 2.1 ROMs. Motorola plans to take down the ROMs that talented developers worked ever so hard on, claiming that they want Cliq users to have only the official release. According to Motorola, some Cliq users would download a modded ROM, not knowing the difference between it and the official release. Motorola is trying to ensure that Cliq users get the correct update, but i think they’re going about it the wrong way.
This is a somewhat arrogant move on Moto’s part. First, they delayed the 2.1 release from Q2 to Q4, and now they’re trying to take down modded ROMs for the Cliq. Maybe Motorola is just jealous that people in the Android community got 2.1 on the Cliq before they did, but we’ll leave that one up to you. Just when we thought Moto was on the right track, after unexpectedly releasing 2.1 for the Cliq last week, they go and pull something like this. How sad.
