Although, it is essential, source code alone isnt going to help for development. They have bootloader lock (although unlocked), the S-ON.., lacked for micro-SD and sub-battery...

All this have killed their product...let them continue the same way, in 2 years time HTC will be a history or go back to roots of making phones for other companies...

You know they are on the cusp of achieving S-OFF right? Also to unlock the HTC Droid DNA is a simple thing to do. I already have the HTC Droid DNA rooted & I am patiently waiting for the first AOSP ROM's to come out already.

Also S-ON is a nuisance BUT not a deal breaker, here is some info to help you understand S-ON & S-OFF. It really is not that BIG of a deal. LINK:

This might have been a problem 3 years ago but the root community has grown & can handle these issues with no problem.
