If you were following the news at all yesterday regarding anything to do with ROMs and the Android dev community, then you might have heard or read about what has been going on between Cyanogen and DroidForums.net (and The BlackAndroid who developed the Ultimate Droid ROM).

In short, Cyanogen, a well respected, if not the most respected, Android ROM developer, called out another developer by the name of The BlackAndroid for ripping part of his code without giving credit.

Today seems to be the day of drama in the wonderful Android world that we live in. It’s no secret that people rip apps off the Android market and post them elsewhere for free. It’s also no surprise that with Open Source material, people base their apps/Roms off others' work and with that, you always give credit where credit is due.

However, a certain someone, named The BlackAndroid, over at DroidForums, would rather take people’s work, mod it and call it his own.
