We all know that if someone makes a source code for our device (F/I/S/K/L/A/Z/W8/FD) It will be easier to port it to non-international variants.
And I think that porting from one device to another will be easier too.
Ex:-Note5 to S6 to S6e to S6e+


I have seen many pledge threads(almost every thread i have seen about bounty) making a big breakthrough in porting in XDA.

Quote:

MODERATOR NOTE: Bounties are not encouraged on XDA, however some have resulted in needed breakthroughs.
A legitimate bounty should be started by someone other than the recipient, preferably an established member of the community. The recipient should be aware of and endorse the bounty and agree to its purpose. A set goal should be announced and totals kept current. No money should be collected up front but pledged to be sent to the recipient's donation link once goal is reached. Please also note bounties should be for significant critical development projects, not to get your favorite developers a new toy....that is what their DONATE link is for.
Please stay within these guidelines.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

By making this bounty I mean no disrespect for free-time developers but I think this will speed up the porting of AOSP based roms for our Galaxy S6 devices.

Some of the many examples available, if you still doubt this you can google for yourself.
S5
M9

Only acceptable posts here are
  • Making/Increasing a pledge of yours.
  • Names/Git links of developers working on porting.

Isn't it easier to bribe someone at Samsung to leak the Exynos 7x source code?

I doubt they have even created the source code, or if they have created it properly.

I'll pledge $10.
Where's the link to do that? Or we chip in at the end when someone is finally able to do it?

So you throw cash at a phone without doing research
Then you realize you want some other rom
So you throw cash at $randomperson to fix it

Even if you succeed with that, Samsung who caused this unfortunate situation will ultimately benefit, because people think their phones can get custom Roms.
It is your money, but do you really want that?
Just accept your fate and buy a customer friendly device next time, there are plenty of options where the vendor does not actively hate their customer.
