Cyanogenmod and SGSII

John, seen today that Samsung provided a CyanogenMod developer with a SGS II, just wonder if there were plans to provide the differently branded Galaxy S2 line to more developers ahead of release? That'd be something awesome to see! Cheers! :cool:

While this is awesome news, I have a feeling out won't be a trend. I think Samsung is trying to amp up the s2 launch. I hope I am wrong though! It is going to be nice to have at least nightlies when the phone launches though.

When you say different brand developers, who are you referring to?
By differently branded i'm referring to Verizon, Spring, T-Mobile, ect. It'd be nice to see some of these get CM7 as well, not sure which variation for which network was handed out already but if all of them were covered it'd be a truly nice thing.
Well, I believe Samsung won't be able to break the truce between them and the network operators. By allowing a mod, Samsung themselves will have to provide official support to the devices and get numerous clearances to ensure that ROM is fine and won't hamper the operator's process in anyway. Loads of legal and technical turmoil, I presume. However, there's one thing that Samsung can possible do is provide the operator specific modem firmware for the respective mods (Read: ROMS) and let them be unchanged. That means a ROM developer has a ROM then all he would need to do is X+Modem firmware for final built of ROM. That way, ROM dev won't have to worry about the operator specific modem settings and samsung wont have to worry about messed up modem module in devices.

(do note that I am not a dev. but my intentions are to keep things smoother and win-win for all)
