Damn! See this is why the very idea of locked down/DRMed devices is bad.
When something critical like this happens many users cannot simply apply a patch to fix it, they are stuck with a device that is exposed and the only way to resolve it is to hope the manufacture releases a patch.
Sure, you could install a custom rom to fix this, but this may not always be available for all android phones, for example, my android phone does not have this option.
Thus, I now need to buy a new phone :-/
 I know android its self is indeed open source, but many (most?) mobile phone manufactures put various locks in place to prevent easy user modifying of the installed firmware.
 I am an open source, anti-drm supporting nut job.
 Typical, I just got my phone set up the way I like it.
 More money spent.. so much for saving up for that 1967 Shelby Fastback Mustang..
