Android outdated? Blame yourself for not rooting it and running CyanogenMod, MIUI, or AOSP.

rooting != ability to install CM and its ilk. My phone is rooted. Bootloader's still locked. No crack for it. No updates.

I take it you're running a pretty obscure device? Most anything that I've seen has been able to unlock the bootloader one way or another.

Not obscure, just not one of the three most popular devices of the moment.

Meh im still running Android 4.1.1 works fine my HTC phone

That's new enough. I got a new phone yesterday (Galaxy Note 2, very nice) which had that installed, although an update to 4.1.2 was available.

I kinda see his point, having the manufacturer/carrier port 4.x onto a 2.x phone is a lot of work for no reward (except happy customers and who cares about them). It seems odd that Google don't release security fixes for older versions which could then be made available for a fraction of the work.

He talks nonsense about Android 3.0.

Agreed. The phones people are complaining about would have absolutely no problem running 4.x; it's the fault of the carriers that friggin point updates aren't making it out.

Ugh. That iPhone game ripped off not only the Super Mario World jump sound, but the gargoyle theme from Ultima VI.

I wanted to root my Android phone, but the tool I need to root it only works in 32-bit Windows XP. Can you blame me for not having an obsolete OS laying around?

May need to look elsewhere. While I'm not going to publicly discuss rooting methods on this forum, I'm not aware of any phone that cannot be rooted from a modern OS.

That game's sole reason for existence is so that kids with their parents' iOS device run up huge charges.
