If you are going to accept donations for an app that to all of us who did so for the S9 now useless, you have a certain obligation. Or is it the fact that the ROM was produced as a vehicle to illicit donations for something that was never intended to be long term. From what I have read it is not the first time this has occurred. That is what makes me angry!

Apologies if I have got this wrong but it is my point of view.

You got it very wrong, not once did I say " donate or development will stop". The rom was created because soldier asked me to. I have done my part. I don't have time to create 3 ROMs, 1 for a device I don't even own. OnePlus 6 rom will get another update, then when the June base drops I will update s8. If I have any time at all I may consider trying to update the S9. But it will be one a final time as I cant keep it up.

Thanks for all your work to this point. The S9 update would be great appreciated, but not owed by any reason. In th meantime i will continue trying to blow up my S9+ with Xposed - lol.

I do think @gitlygit has some valid points.

If it was known in advance amongst the developers that you would personally only work on the initial G96X release, that it would then be entirely up to Soldier to continue it, and that he lacked the necessary knowledge to do so, then the early demise of the G96X version was a foregone conclusion that really ought to have been communicated to users from the outset. How else were users supposed to make an informed decision about whether to install a ROM that was essentially an evolutionary dead-end, and whether to pay to unlock its features if they did?

Any user who paid the €17 in fees to unlock the full functionality of the G96X version would have had a reasonable expectation that support for it would continue for a lot longer than it did. Given the terms under which you undertook the work for the initial release, it seems that user expectations could and should have been realistically set from the very beginning. Given that they weren't, @gitlygit's suspicion that the short-lived G96X release might have been intended as a cynical cash-in seems understandable. I accept that this was not your motive, but I can certainly see how someone might reach that conclusion.

You still have not understood that he has more time? A simple update of the build, the kernel is full, it's already great. this rom is perfect

is in his right to do with his work and his time what he wants. He has no obligation. This is an absurd discussion
