It seems the time for quitting has come to one of the most well known developer in the Windows Phone world, and he was very nice enough to write us a bye bye note. The note was posted on his site (the one that HTC and himself have been having conflict with). This note pretty much said its his time to quite this never ending battle of improving peoples Windows Phones.
Its a very sad moment when I read this tweet, and reading the whole note is even worse:
Well for the most part this HTC Saga is over. The verdict is in. They have asked me not to upload more files in the future. For a compromise, they are allowing me to keep everything else that is online.
This is a compromise on both sides. Although I do not enjoy how this turned out. I am not about to go head to head with a corporation of that size.
The other side to this is going to hurt a little more. Because of the recent turn of events. I am decided to leave behind the PPC community; and focus my time on other tasks at hand.
This leads me to the ending of this saga. I have spent the last 4 years devoting my time to mobile phones. Making them better, expanding on what they can already do. Helping thousands of users do what they could with their devices. I have made many friends from all around the world. However I think that it is time for me to call it quits. I have enjoyed everything, and phone modifications will always be in my mind. It is just time for me to spend my time focus on other activities and learning new skills. The times I have had will always be remembered. However everyone has a time they need to call it quits. This is my time, with HTC being curious about what I am doing. I think it is time for me to walk away when I am on top. I wish everyone the best of luck, I will be paying attention, however I will not be taking part of what is going on.
