Keeper of leaked HTC ROMs disappears into the ether

Can't say we didn't see this coming. Word around the campfire was that the infamous 911HTC (née 911Sniper) blog that scored leaked HTC ROM after leaked HTC ROM had itself become the target, and tonight it's gone dead. The site itself redirects to Google.com, and its pages to Google 404s, though the ROMs still live on on their external hosting pages.

A shame, since we do love leaks around here. But at the same time, not surprising -- HTC takes its intellectual property seriously (as well it should). And the flip side of that is that leaked test ROMs can be fraught with danger, as evidenced by the recent bricking of HTC ThunderBolt's running one of these unofficial radios.

Oh, well. The game goes on, folks.
