Hey guys, as you know, currently the Poco F2 Pro / Redmi K30 Pro (lmi) doesn't have an active developer's community working to bring up Custom ROMs, Custom Recoveries etc.

Two of us @raystef66 & @Cave_diver), who are currently building for the Xioami Mi9, have decided to purchase the Poco F2 Pro and plan to build/develop for it.
However we are still missing some key skills and would very much like to win over @mickaelmendes50 to help with our project.

Our goal is to work together as a team and to bring up AOSP ROMs and a stable recovery for lmi as soon as possible.
Mickael is currently very active developing and maintaining on the Poco F1 and would very much like to join our effort, yet he is lacking the device and funds for purchasing it.

If you are interested in supporting and accellerating this project by getting Mickael on the team, please consider helping with his crowdfunding.
You'll find information about his plans and his PayPal for donations in the post below.

Please keep in mind that while the chances of success will increase significantly by supporting this effort, Mickael will be under no obligation to release any finished products.
The entire purpose of this donation is to enable him to work with us towards achieving what we all want, a solid device tree, a working recovery and fully functional ROM's
Yet as you all know development is not easy, life sometimes changes plans and you can never guarantee a specific outcome.

Looking forward to your support

Hi everyone, my name is Mickael (@mickaelmendes50) and many of you will also know me as Mr. Mesquita from Telegram.
You can also find me on Github.

My current device is the Pocophone F1 and I fully support the team project of developing for the Poco F2 Pro / Redmi K30 Pro as described in post above.
In order to do so, I will need a funding for a device because my current status as a student does not allow me to purchase.
My plans and timeframe are as follows:
  • Hopefully complete the successful crowdfunding!!!
  • Wait for device delivery - approx. 4 weeks after the goal is reached.
  • Wait for the Xiaomi bootloader period to pass - 2 weeks after delivery.
  • Finally the timeframe for a geting a stable AOSP ROM and recovery - roughly a month after bootloader unlock.
The goal is to reach a total of USD 525 which will enable the purchase and shipping of the device, including insurance and taxes.
Your support would be greatly appreciated!

My paypal information is as follows:

Name: Mickael Mesquita
Location: Goiânia, Brazil
[EDITED]

All donors will be listed in the post below this one, please let me know in your paypal donation if you would like to remain anonymous.
In addition there is a spreadsheet where I will track all the donations and where you can see what is missing to reach the goal.

Thank you everyone. I would be very grateful for your support!

Mr. Mesquita.

As the last contributions came in over night, before @mickaelmendes50 was able to update/close the donation, there is an now an over-achievement of the goal by 123.37 USD.
We would suggest that as soon as @mickaelmendes50 knows the exact price for the device, including shipping/insurance and customs, he will contact the contributors for a possible refund of excess donations.

Thank you once again everyone!

****, just 20 bucks, nobody are interesting in this phone.
Developers just skip this phone and use your skills in another phone, this is a waste of time and you know it.

Actually it just started 30 minutes ago so that's not all that bad a rate

And just curious, where else can you get a phone for that price with a notchless Amoled, a Snapdragon 865 and a huge battery. All with pretty awesome Xiaomi build quality?

The main problem here is Xiaomi. After 90 days no update for a brand new device and 60 days later after that we only get 2 updates but the phone is still full of bugs, fake 5G, even small basics like bluetooth doesn't work. I'm so pissed off and just looking to switch, no wqy to go with Xiaomi without working custom rom anymore in the future.
