    pay software out of control

    who here agree's with me that the pay software pricing is way out of control? who here is willing to work on a real free solution to put an end to this crap? i know i'll probably get slandered for this too but if i do end up paying or unlimited flashes for one month im going to give the login and pass away on here and other forums in hopes that other people will work with me on figuring out what this software does that no one else can do.

    so thats my offer, if you think you can help figure this out and contribute to a free solution i will give you my login in and password so you can flash your own device to help figure it out. who's in?

    Why don't you hack the cricket billing software, you pay that ever month. Flashing you only pay once.

    i develop and make custom performance parts and software so i think i know a bit about hard work on development. if my prototype software has too much timing and not enough fuel under boost i take the risk of scattering 1000.00+ engines that i pay to build out of my own pocket, if one idea with an ECU modification goes wrong and i fry an ECU im out anywhere from 100 to 800 plus bucks if i cant recover the ECU again. all of my R&D is dont on my own cars that i pay for and build myself. so i think i know a good bit about getting paid for work. but my goal is to develop a quality parts and software and under cut my competitions pricing. i would rather sell more of a product at a cheaper price than sell only a few at a high price. people tend to come and spend more money in the long run with this method. so dont try to tell me about software pricing and all that because i know i've spent a hell of alot more money developing one part than anyone spent on writing this iphone software.

    also by the looks of things the guys the run Vshare developed and wrote all the software everyone is pushing on here. so none of the english speaking guys wrote any software, they just worked a deal with the chinese developers for an english version and their passing it off as their own. so in reality their just pocketing money for software they bought and didnt actually develop.

    So you're trying to work a deal with people here to do the same thing the Chinese developers did? And i wouldnt question your software pricing as i'm sure you understand supply & demand, quality vs quantity and marketing, etc... De Beers and Apple sure do understand it, lol.

    ...flashing software is hardware locked, so by giving username and pass, you won't really win. I am not a user for those automated flashing tools, but have friends that use them and make tons of money. They don't have time to learn the manual way of doing things, and paying 100 a month for it, is not a biggie for a business.
    If you develop something, do it from scratch, and not by hacking into somebody's work. So yeah, seems like we are all OUT of this deal.
    If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?

    I could use some custom parts for my FR-S. Care to design some for me? I don't want to pay though.

    Op's point is hilarious. Wants a free flashing solution. And is asking for help in developing it. (Anyone smart enough to develop large scale flashing software that people are willing to pay for) definitely aren't working for free.

    This very site has everything you need to learn how to flash almost every phone out there if that doesn't suffice you then your the kind of person that needs to either pay a pay per flash service or take your phone to a local dealer who either visits this site religiously to learn how to flash or pays for a monthly flashing service.

    sadly i still can't flash phones very well myself. and we don't get enough flashes to make paying for it profitable. we refer our customers to the some local dude who is probably OP charging $15 per flash making zero profit.

    Sorry My software that you see advertised on this site is written by me by an american in the states. You will see it rebranded and resold by many but I have no clue where you get Vshare from anywhere. 75 is not an unreasonable price to ask for a month of service. Their are plenty of free solutions read the forums learn how to do it all yourself. If you want this in a 100% free solution then kiss charging for flashing goodbye. The price tag is low enough that it can pay itself off the first of the month no problem and at the same time it keeps away alot of the craigslist flashers that are not willing to pay for anything. When it is free all the dealers around you will start doing it for free.

    I also agree with captainkirks I call bullshit on that dude also.
