i decided to support the peoples who made haret/linux/android possible.

android is working very well on all of our hd2's because of the work/time this people spent working on the bootloader and fixes.

i am the driving force behind this donation task (not dcordes or anyone else). this thread is my contribution to their awesome work.

THANKS TO Cotulla/dcordes/NetRipper/Markinus/LeTama
(all donations will be shared between this awesome contributors)


collected qoutes of the devs can be found in post 2 now for better transparency/visibility.

as you may know, we collected 1350 dollars within 14 hours (for da_g, wp7 donation fund).

remember: this donation was just to get hardware (hd2/jtag device etc) to work on the WP7-HD2-port (wich is still going on).

HARET/LINUX/ANDROID is nearly fully working on our HD2's RIGHT NOW.

THIS FUND IS TO THANK THEM FOR THE WORK THAT IS ALREADY DONE BY THE DEVS.

HD2 HARET/LINUX/ANDROID DONATION LINK

DONATION ROUND ONE STARTED NOW!! 30.10.10 17.00GMT

please post a reply with amount/name/transaction id as fast as possible to make my task of collecting the donations easier (and guarantee full transparency).

every single donation will get a entry in the "donation hall of fame" below until the goal is reached.

I DO THIS FOR FREE AND JUST WANT TO SUPPORT THE BRAINS THAT MADE ALL THOSE ANDROID ROMS EVEN POSSIBLE.

THE PRIMARY GOAL IS:

1500$ + ~90$ PAYPAL (MY DECISION)- 300$ FOR EVERY DEVELOPER (THE 5 MENTIONED ABOVE)

I applaud hd2owner's approach and he has my full support for this.

I should add - some of you who were following the entire development process might have seen it - that i criticized this user before.
Back then it was about setting up a bounty thread for functional linux (android) on the hd2. I disliked it for several reasons, one being that i don't like being rewarded for work that has not been performed yet.

For me personally i think many have seen that i have been sticking with this from day one and i will not have a bad feeling about receiving something back for this.
So that way around, doing it as a reward instead of bounty fund it's all good and i am looking forward for this to work.

Also regarding the fact that i'm a student and do not have time to earn much money at the moment i will not have a bad conscience in participating.

A short word to those who have a hard time putting trust in this: If everybody will post the transaction id and amount donated here on the thread we will have full transparency.
This must be clarified more in the first post.

My personal suggestion is to approach the following other xda members who have substantially participated in the working linux on hd2 and ask them about joining.
We should share the reached cash money among us equally. Of course they have to agree.

Netripper, markinus, letama, cotulla.

Best regards and thanks again to hd2owner for getting this started and thanks to everybody willing to support.

i hope the other devs feel the same way.

I will for sure appreciate donations even though my contribution can't be compared to what cotulla did. It should be clear that we wouldn't have what we have now without him.

I wanted also to apologize for not being more active on the forum but kernel hacking is an awful time sink and days are always too short.

hi great idea was thinking of doing this myself for them.1 thing tho I think we will receive more donations if people see a reply in this thread from dcords and cotulla ect so everybody knows your not taking the money yourself. Not saying you are just think we will get more donations this way.

thanks

dcordes will show up for sure....

since i would actually see the amount in real-time on my account instead of having to wait for people to reply in this thread after donating and to rely on "the amount of money donated" of another person (donation link owner).

do you guys really think i would perform a stunt (and destroy my reputation here).....??? for 1500 dollars????

If there was no proof of a conversation between the OP and dcordes I wouldn't be contibuting so I agree with you but people need to realise that there are more than one or two people working on this. It isn't fair that some developers recieve a high percentage of donations over others which as putting in the same amount of time. If we can provide proof that all developers involved will get contribution then I don't see a problem and see this as a great idea.

we can perform a second donation round (no record time donation) for people who are angry (working on the subject).

every one of the co-workers will be happy... if not... he will be after round 2...

EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR COUNTS.

and i'm pretty sure some folks out there who are willing to donate don't see this now and want to donate later (after goal is reached).
