Yeah they have been doing this for awhile now.

Not enough ppl complain about it to get a change done.

 

I think there's a perma-root app in the market that will let u in a sense unroot then u can reboot and go back to market download the movie, go back and reroot after....maybe?

Think its OTA rootkeeper....Or you can hand around xda or other sites as there likely will be moded playstore.apk that will bypass the root check.

I wouldn't be so quick to jump on Google's back. Does anyone know why they disallow it? It may have something to do w/ DRM and their contracts with content providers.

 

It's not DRM bc there are many ways to have the media DRM protected even on rooted devices. Makes no difference. It's all about the content providers as they are always the last to adapt and accept new things.

Yeah, I didn't even think about Netflix. That is available on all handsets, not just non-rooted ones. DRM was the reason it took so long to come to Android when it was on iOS for a long time.

Netflix as stated...

 

It's all about implementation and getting the big networks to agree...the later is always the toughest part as everyone is so scared of piracy though they will stream their shows on sites for home pc to capture just as easily....smh

Yup DRM was it, first it was only for devices that had it built in the chip itself but they evolved the app to have it in it itself or their streams have it directly.

Looks like it is "due to requirements related to copyright protection." Google should do a search using their own search engine and they will find pirate movies all over the place. As

And of course, I'd much rather steal movies streamed with a poor bitrate at a low resolution to my phone than use Google to search out any of the thousands of places where I could steal them using my computer.

I was to try out Inglorious Basterds that Google offered for a quarter.

 

One of my favorite, all time movies! It's dark...so you have to be in the right mood to watch it. But it's one of the few Brad Pitt movies I can stomach. "Killing Natzees!"

I am sorry if anyone is offended by the language but this was too funny of a rant not to share.

Not only funny, but I agree whole heartedly. I can watch Netflix on my rooted device. This is BS. I hope WebOS free source takes off.

Yeah it is total BS if you ask me. I hope this doesn't start a trend of things to come.

    • Added, and 2 more estimated sites: T-Mobile eNB 876480. Looks like its located at (40.62210996397784, -73.97627312607108), as the tower looks like a Sprint setup. T-Mobile eNB 875632. Both this site and Sprint eNB 9022 seem to be located at (40.61640722407462, -73.96985178560767).
    • Many of these sites I am uploading are for sites that do not exist, yet.  Although, I suppose I could go into NR only mode every time I connect to a new site, and then switch back, allowing all the TAC NR trails that occur to now have a home. Ideally, I would love to ne able to add the TAC's myself.  I have the NR Trails CSV file downloaded, and I see all the TAC-less NR entries.  Is there any way I can edit and manually upload them myself?  Maybe create a portal for such an upload?  Or at least give me a way to create at least one manual entry for every new site? Robert
    • Could we send the TAC as -1 if it’s invalid? Then, if there’s and existing site that matches the other info, I could match the web data entry up with it (despite the TAC being absent). 
    • Mine has been enabled.  And they show up in my device logs with the TAC null. Robert
    • If the TAC is missing, an entry is still recorded in the log, but it would not be included in uploads.. so you could probably manipulate a trail log export to add the data to the map if you were able to nail down the sites without the TAC. EDIT: Sites with a missing TAC are only recorded in the log if the option to do so is enabled (Logger > Log Sites with Missing TAC).
