Read the latest news that TCL is going to make Blackberry phones in future?
If they are going to drop further updates for the phones please at least allow the community to root their phones. Maybe they're waiting for our phone warranty to lapse/expire before doing it so that they'll be relieved of their responsibilities of doing RMAs. Really very dishonest company we're dealing here.
I don't know why Blackberry should trust companies like these, if they're not careful their own Blackberry source codes might even get leaked in future just like how Indonesia few years back demanded them to expose.
