Thanks, Qualcomm. This is why we can’t have nice things.
Jean-Baptiste Quéru is the AOSP’s frontman – he gets praised when things work out, and cops the flak when they don’t. And with Qualcomm’s lawyers raining all over the Nexus 7’s parade, it seems that JBQ has had enough:
It’s interesting that this problem was predicted six months ahead of time, but a bit sad that it still hasn’t been resolved. I guess some folks at Google are more interested in making money out of Android than supporting the modding community. While it’s sad that JBQ will be leaving the AOSP, he may not be disappearing completely:

Au revoir, JBQ. Vous allez nous manquer.
