- ¿Do you use CFW?
Absolutely, on various devices.

- ¿Do you think CFW is wrong?
Not at all! I own the hardware, I deserve to use it to my means.

- ¿Do you think piracy is wrong?
Depends on the scenario, if its a small dev/team I would feel more against the measure, but if its a huge studio thats probably making more money ripping people and kids off than they would ever lose any then I would not feel against that. Also depends on the availability of the media and if its being edited/censored in your area, making the original harder to get a hold of without the means of piracy. Its a complicated issue sure, but at the end of the day if I enjoy something greatly I have no problem giving money to those who made it.

- ¿Do you think is wrong to automatically relate CFW with piracy?
Yes. Most of my use case with CFW is unlocking additional functions and mods that I could not do in the stock OS. Plus I just like having full control of my hardware. All of this has nothing to do with the ability to pirate media or not. Hell, I remember back in the day when people would mod their DVD players and game consoles just so they can play media that was region locked. Legit media, but was locked by the hardware. This is why mods and CFW got popular over time, the means to pirate just made the deal sweeter for those wanting to do that.

People want and deserve to have full unrestricted control of their hardware. Restricting them for the sake of gains for the company is just anti-consumer and treats them like braindead children with deep pockets. Everyone should have the right to do everything they can do with their hardware and software, if they want to that is.

    The problem I have with it is that I can't get it for that price. Shipping and handling and fees and import fees and processing fees and bullshit and it's like $300 by the time I get it.

    Amazon takes a loss on their tablets because they run Amazon's OS and is part of their ecosystem, and they know very well that it will just get rooted and hacked in Croatia and it's
    not worth the loss.
