I'm not sure. DerTeufel found a device locally for 599 euros and is willing to chip in 100 euros. I don't know why people aren't more interested in this functionality. I have considered opening threads in the Sprint and T-Mobile forums. The N7100/N7105 forums have been silent and the Verizon forum has only negative comments about donations... I sent a PM to DerTeufel to see what he thinks.

Re: Dual-boot donation thread - Currently >$310.00
I'll take a look today, if there is a way, to get a used one for less money. (eBay...)

Also, i totally understand if one does not want to donate before the work is done, i just can't pay for this device. I am still visiting university and having family with two kids. If I would spend my little money for a phone instead of my family, I am sure, I would not have a family any longer. So, sorry. But buying the device myself is no option for me.

If you guys get me the money for it, I really would be proud to develop for it.

I changed the OP to see if anyone would even consider $5.00. I will update my donation to $75.00 as soon as I see someone else offer a donation.

Please guys? It doesn't seem fair that he will be building this kernel for the whole community when its less than 10 people putting cash forward. Please consider even a small donation if you plan on using this ever or just want to support a hard working dev. I used to be part of the Samsung infuse community and they were able to donate devices to 5 or more devs. This is a great community with a lot of potential, so please help out!

Forgive my ignorance here, but what would we be dual booting to?

It would be your choice of ROMs compatible with the kernel(s) that TerDeufel1980 would create. Until he has the device and works on it, he won't know if it would be 2 different TW ROMs or 2 different AOSP ROMs or perhaps 1 of each if he can swap kernels during the dual-boot process. The second or "alternate" ROM will need some configuration, etc. I dual-boot my kindle fire using the modaco build (close to stock) for the default boot which was packaged specifically to flash to the "alternate" partition. I then can flash any other ROM not specially configured into the "primary" partition. The dual-boot loader is modified to make the alternate as the default. I don't know how it will work for our device but you can look at DerTeufel's dual-boot thread for the Captivate - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2135091
Our device is a lot newer so I am guessing he will have more flexibility in what he can do.

I'm not sure that your total value is accurate. I got much higher than what you got. You may want to recount

Thanks - I'm not counting PxDroid86 yet since I don't think that amount will be sent until after the dual-boot is created. I'm looking for enough for DerTeufel to purchase the device initially. I may change the OP to gather "after the fact" donations and make a "loan" of sorts by sending a large amount of front and DerTeufel will send an agreed-upon amount back to me when he receives the "after the fact donations". I'm trying to limit that "up front" loan though since I have to clear it with the wife...

Yesterday a two months old device ended at ebay for 402. Of course no one knows how much it would have been if I had bid for it, too.
Next one ending in 4 days.
