Modder Reaches Terms with HTC

Go ahead, modder community, let out that big sigh of relief. HTC won't be shutting down Coinflipper and his merry crew of hackers over at Shipped-ROMs after all. Due to the cooperation of the site, HTC is extending the date on their cease and desist order and working with Coinflipper to identify exactly which software images need to go.

The problem lies in not Shipped-ROMs hosting HTC's files, but rather hosting files that were co-developed with carriers. HTC is saying their own ROMs are fair game and that only the carrier specific varieties need to go. It will still cut down on the number of images available, but it won't be the deafening blow everyone feared.

Coinflipper is even going so far as to inquire about becoming a legitimate licensed partner with HTC so he can go about distributing his goods free of any legal threats. The handset manufacturer didn't say it would happen, but they didn't count it out either.[via XDA-Developers]
