WebOS vs Android : OS openness

 

 

 

 

I posted an article below discussing the security of android OS mobile devices versus WebOS devices. The article describes how both operating systems are equally as vulnerable yet one comes equip with an easy OS reset tool. WebOS offers that tool and its called webOSdoctor. The tool offers an easy to use step by step procedure for recovering your defective or “bricked” device. All you need is your OS version number and your devices carrier and you can recover a broken OS.

The main flaw of google’s OS is that it is used with so many manufacturers and carriers that a universal recover system like webOS offer just isn’t easily available.

So I was wondering what could google develop and implement in order to prevent “bricked” devices from happening?

Any ideas or suggestions, also has anyone run into this problem before with either OS?
