Default The Athena Project

As some of you have been following in this thread:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=311433

The Athena Project is designed to fund and deliver an Athena to a developer (or developers) in order to work on:

Sim Unlock
CID Unlock
Cooked ROM

etc. etc. etc. for the good and benefit of the Athena owners in this forum.

However, We can't do this without support.

The first thing we need are donations. There is now a Paypal account specifically set up for these donation, the address is:

sales@aardfark.co.uk (No longer AthenaPayments@aardfark.co.uk) - More details in my last update here:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...311651&page=10

There is also a mailing list to enable developers to communicate with donators on progress. Anyone who donates will be automatically added to this list and should get prior warning of any developments before they are posted here.

A daily total of funds raised will be posted in this thread with the username of the donator (make sure you add it in the text of your Paypal payment).

Now, let's get some momentum going on this.

-------------------------

16 Jun 07 - 1330GMT - e790.91
16 Jun 07 - 1340GMT - e00.00 (Account Closed) - Funds transferred to bank to pay for 2 Ameos!

As we are now also over at www.athenaproject.net I will not be updating the list of donors - I will however, still be adding all of the donors to the internal mailing list for first news of any breakthroughs or major developments.

Thanks to everyone who is contributing in whatever way to make this happen!

First payment of euro 5.00 from Confuscious is in!

Paypal charge 3.4% and 0.35euro on every credit card debit card payment so please bear this in mind when donating.

Thanks!

I've just put e20 in there too...

I'm working on a payment link which should be quite easy to do (I had to upgrade the account to a Premier account about 5 mins ago..).

Give me 10 mins and it should be squared away.

Nope, I'm stumped - it looks like you have to sign up for Paypal to pay by credit card.

If anyone knows any better please info me so we can sort this out.

Thanks for trying. I've opened up a paypal account but have to wait 3-5 days for account verification. Why can't I just transfer some funds over to it directly?!!!!!!!

Well done for your efforts apphoen. The balls running now.
