I searched for a Cyanogenmod rom for the Hudl but without success.

My understanding was the there are more Android apps with malware than the total of apps in the WP application store.

I am curious do you dislike Sailfish as to get updates you need a Jolla signin which is also needed for their store?

Are people not able to add repos to Ubuntu touch?

The android ecosystem, at tleast the one on google-play is pretty weak. It seems like mostly web link or website API plugins providing no service greater than a browser bookmark on the desktop. To make matters worse there are so damn many duplicate apps on google-play which only differ in what ads it is downloading over my data plan. There are paid apps but even these are not a sure thing, they could also have malware. There are FOSS apps on the various app stores, but only F-Droid is all FOSS with available source code right there to review. Android is a badly implemented ecosystem, better to suited to taking payments or getting infected by requiring a hack for root, than serving the user like real Linux.

Wow, that is pretty effedup, the droids are so secure that you can't even fix them when malware hits you. Where's the outrage? Windows machines had never such problem, unless it just screwed your whole drive (or maybe anti-malware/AV solutions for mobile OSes are in their infancy, or is it fragmentation, as they were 'detected'?). Malware will probably soon come with better protection from rooting than original soft, keeping you safer than GOOG/manufacturer did once you catch it (as from the above it seems on rooted devices you could at least overwrite everything). What a time to be alive

Except it is all in chroot, so uninstall aliendalvik and it will be gone, the described situation of reflashing/resetting device to be still malwared should not be possible (sure there might be other exploits, but then it will be using some generic linux bugs/0days on top of android exploits that have to work in the emulated form, there definitely are holes, but you have two layers to get through)
