Hackers!

What are some good hacking Android phones on Verizon and AT&T?

I am out of the loop on those guys a wee bit and don't have much time to look at xda right now.

You know, which current line up Android phones on Verizon and AT&T have the best support in the custom ROM and kernel world? I know a ton about t-mobile phones, since I work for a t-mobile affiliate, but haven't been following the other carriers very closely like I used too.

I am getting a new job, thus will have to pay for my phone service, so going to go with either Verizon or AT&T...

Looking at the Infuse or Inspire on AT&T and looking at DINC 2 or Samsung Charge on Verizon...

But open to other suggestions. I am hoping some more appealing options come out in the next month, since none of those really float my boat. Wish there was a Sensation option on either carrier, since that would be it for sure.

So you're looking for something with an unlocked bootloader? That leaves you with the Atrix and anything HTC. You're going to be living in a 4g area within the year, I'd consider a thunderbolt. But whichever you go with, don't do the OTA update unless you want to SBF flash your phone back to 2.2 so you can root it and install custom kernels.

Thanks! I had a chance to take a bit of a look myself this morning and got some responses back from guys on Team Douche I used to work with.

I am going to hope a Sensation like phone hits AT&T or Verizon in time. Either that, or the Galaxy II... god I wish we were like the rest of the world and didn't have jerk off carriers delaying phones.

I am going to try and find a way to delay setting up until these new dual core's hit so I am not signing a 2yr agreement a few weeks before what I really want comes out.

I know the wife will likely do the Infuse 4G or the Samsung Charge, unless the Galaxy II hits... she likes her Samsung screens.

By then you will have a new job, too, from the sounds of it.

Hahaha... I interview tomorrow for a 50k+ a year job, and will probably get it. I think I will pass... plus, the commute would be brutal, and I am ready to snap on the next person that complains they don't get service somewhere.

Meh, I'll be making 30k easy as long as I do what I've been doing. And I live less than 1/8 mile away from work Smile
