Born in another thread (Make an app for the nexus q that adds chromecast support: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2379961) i am creating this thread to raise attention that some members have agreed to set up a bounty for developer(s) who can bring the chromecast functionality to the Nexus Q (most likely via an Android app / apk).

For now I'm using this thread to write down the members and the amount they're willing to donate to this cause. We'll have to figure out how to make sure the bounty goes to the correct person in the end (maybe some sort of verified paypal?).

I'll maintain this list here and collect information as well. For developers interested in working on a solution together we could also use this thread.



jbriano, $100
Kovs, $50
Surge1, $50
darb, $50
ianandamy, $50
brianwilcox, $35
jmm701, $25
ocdtrekkie, $25
unknownkwita, $25
eddib, $25
Volatyle, ???

Total Bounty Amount as of now: $435.

Feature Requests:
  1. proper HAL audio drivers working too
  2. Would also like the lights to work how they did if that is possible
  3. It seems that HAL is very important to most of the people here.

I will edit this post whenever new information becomes available.


People wishing to contribute just post in this thread with the amount of money they want to donate.
And I think if people posted features they'd like to see I will add them to this OP post as well.

In all honesty, without having my hands on either, this doesn't seem like it would take that much effort.
I might have to crack open the firmware dump from each and check it out.

Battery Low I'm in for $100
I paid for two of these devices, and loved them when they worked. I'll contribute $100 toward the cause.

Great idea! It seems, there is hope for the Q in one way or the other. Androidpolice reported on some developers implementing Chromecast already. Here's the link:

I think it is great to see what they can already do. I guess / hope in a couple of weeks we'll have a Chromecast reciever app...
