The XDA Marketplace is Closing, for Now

Over the years, many of you have benefited from using the XDA Marketplace (either in our Wanting to Buy or Wanting to Sell forums) to buy/sell/trade devices. However, due to malicious individuals using the Marketplace to scam other XDA users despite our best efforts to keep this from happening, we have decided to close the Marketplace. Doing so will free up our moderators to more effectively patrol non-Marketplace forums on XDA.

We are considering the possibility of launching a vastly better non-forum-based trading system on XDA for those that want to fairly exchange, buy, and sell devices with other XDA members. Keep an eye on the Portal to learn more in the coming months.

Effective today, no new threads can be made there, and on 30 November, the Marketplace will be closed and be entered into a read-only state. The Member-Found Deals and Job Board forums will remain open, both technically a part of Marketplace.

Again, thanks for using the Marketplace over the years, and we apologize for the inconvenience that its closure might have caused.

The terms of the GPLv2 state that since the Android kernel is based on the Linux kernel, which is licensed under GPL,v2 Android has to be open-source for everyone to study or modify, and those that modify the Android kernel have to make their sources immediately available for...
