I have been involved with both the PSP hacking communities and the Android Open Source Developing communities and notice quite a few similarities
between the two methods of "hacking" the different Operating Systems.
For example in both the PSP and the Android you have to be on a specific original version as to make sure that all the exploits are still available
for you to use for your advantage.
As the PSP community grew, so did replacements for its software whereas you could rearrange and change everything on the operating system. With PSP
you could edit font sizes, change the menus, change the icons, even create entire themes to make your PSP look like windows 95...
I see the same thing happening with Android, although certain bootloaders are locked making it harder to place custom Roms onto your devices, even
these devices are now coming out with a Rom or two as long as you are on that specific android release. Say 2.3.4 that's a popular one.
Anyone else catch those similarities?
