With that said, Samsung may have its hands tied addressing the matter. It is a dark past which the Korean company cannot deny. Hence, Samsung is unlikely to get some aid from Rockstar Games to fend off the mods. This is because the mods do not come from them meaning they are not liable for its existence.

Will Samsung waste time finding the mod?

Hence, the best chance of Samsung to try to make the exploding Galaxy Note 7 is to go after the one behind the mod. That will, of course, entail a lot of effort, probably a wasted on, Ubergizmo reported.

Moving forward, Samsung will just have to live with that unfortunate incident which may be remembered even out of “Grand Theft Auto 5”. It was a costly oversight on their part even if it was to the group who supplied the battery.
