Specifically, General Mobile only customizes this unofficial ROM as adding its logo, changing some properties to be compatible with the device manufactured by this company. Everything personal like the user name including the package name, tweaks, folders, and sign of the file are all imprinted by Erfan Abdi and it proves that General Mobile has "hacked".

Even General Mobile posted a notice on its forum that:

"You may not sell, rent, lease, redistribute, publish, transmit, modify, re-license, transfer any content including copies downloaded from General Mobile to third parties. .

We will launch an investigation for those found not to comply with the above conditions "
