I just wanted to get a gauge on the community’s attitude towards hacking a paid application. Not for the intent of making it free, but for the intent of making it work!
You see, There’s an app out there called “Escort Live!”. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great app as it integrates with your radar detector and laser jammers while driving… but it’s rife with issues that the company just hasn’t been able to address… see the following forum for more information on that:
So… I made a post to try and help the community out by decompiling the 2.04apk hosted on their site… not even their latest version… with Virtuous 10 Studios, and Informed the community of the Sloppy Dev work, and that I would try to fix the issues with our specific phones (Motorola based).
2 days after that post was made…
They then pulled the old .apk’s off of their site, so I’ve conveniently uploaded it here for everyone to decompile and see the terrible coding for themselves:

I don’t have enough of a post count on XDA to make a dev project out of this, but as soon as I do then I’ll post the progress on of the project on github.
If anyone would like to join in the effort to give PAYING CUSTOMERS a functioning apk to use with their phones… volunteers are more than welcome, especially those with java / json / xml experience.
