Huh? Options 1 and 2 aren't mutually exclusive at all.
Maybe you meant to say "1) weaken Android security" (for the purpose of making locked-down Android phones easier to hack, which is what the parent and grandparent posts seemed to be advocating)? That way it makes more sense that 1 and 2 are mutually exclusive — if locked-down Android devices were truly unhackable, then there would likely be more end-user demand for the unlocked devices that are already for sale (Nexus, etc.).
