Cyanogen for the TF701....have extra tablet
I have lurked here for years but recently have decided to get into an android tablet. After two returns of a TF700t....one due to seller dishonesty (selling refurbs as new, but he apologized) and one due to getting a lemon, I gave up on ebay and pre ordered a TF701. Two, actually, as when I first ordered from Newegg they advertised an 11/4 release date then I later saw an 11/17 date. I thought maybe they took enough preorders to fill their first allotment.....possibly....so I asked them and they had no info. So I pre ordered another from excalibur. I thought whichever one would ship first I would keep and I would cancel the other order.
Wrong. Both orders were filled within an hour of each other. Friday.
So here's my question:
Since I have one extra tablet, I would like to see if there is enough support here so we can donate the tablet to a developer. I have PM'd the 10.2 (jellybean) developer for the 700T "dasunsrule32" and he asked if there might be support here to do this. We know it takes enormous amounts of time to to this work so I am looking to see if anyone might care to contribute a portion of the cost.
I paid 453.00 for the tablet. I am willing to contribute 50.00.
We need a developer interested in getting a free tablet, who can write a new bootloader, CWM (or TWRP) and Cyanogen jelly bean or KitKat. I know this is dependent on the
Asus bootloader unlock tool working.
So if we can get a list of ppl willing to contribute, I can send the tablet to dasunsrule32, or if he can't or is not interested, this offer is open to other developers.
I know I am an unknown face, I might propose if we get enough support that we send the developer the money, I am willing to send the tablet without getting reimbursed
for it. But I would ask that its a recognized person with a track record on this forum. When the tablet is received, he/she can reimburse me minus my 50.00 contribution.
