    Thanks for the awesome rom. I would have no problem to donate a bit so you can continue developing this rom. But I need to be sure that you keep developing if I donate (not like: I donate, it is not enough and you still stop). So could you could give us more insight in how much you need? Maybe more people will donate then.

    EDIT: check this post first Explanation of everything :)

    I will stay developping my rom and keep my Neo, so I can stay and update my rom :D
