I'm wondering if our community would be willing and trustworthy enough to put forth a committee that would accept and seek donations for further development for phone and the Android community as a whole.
A couple things off the top of my head:
- stable 4.0 ROM
- modded mount points for mnt/sdcard and mnt/external_sdcard
- modded shortcuts for off screen buttons (volume + = skip song, power = take photo in camera mode)
The committee would take the communities advice and put forth bounties for certain Dev work/features. This would not only speed our phones development but if executed correctly could help our community grow. It would have to be decided if we would stay or commit to xda exclusively, work among many threads, or a combination of the two and produce our own website. Obviously this would mainly be about budgeting and being responsible.
Feel free to improvise on this idea.
Feel free to PM me if you can be of help - such as development skills, internet programming, spare phone etc.,
