    So guys, this is just a feeler for how everyone would feel about this.

    Drakaz is working on 2.0 and doesnt want to take donations for it, because quite understandably he would then feel comitted to completing the work.

    However he needs a galaxy to test what he's done.

    I'm prepared to sell him mine cheap, but I really really need the cash so I cant give it away.

    Do you guys think we could raise 200 EUR's between us to fund a galaxy for him? l cover the 40 EUR DHL shipping to france.

    And just to be clear, this is me asking, not him. But I said if we can raise it i'm shipping him mine regardless of what he says. He has no choice :p


    You can see a progress bar for how far we are. So its fair for everyone to see when we got to the target.

    EDIT: I've decided to aim for 200 EUR in stead of the original 150. I'll cover any shortfall and DHL to france. So he's gonna get the galaxy regardless. Just dont let me down now :p

    Sounds... interesting! Quite obviously it depends on how much each will have to donate, which in turn depends on how many people will actually donate. Is there a way to get my money back if we don't reach the target?

    If you dont reach the target i cover the difference!

    If this all goes horibly wrong i'll refund everyone.

    11% done. Come on people!

    Controversial, huh ) So I guess you expect small difference with the target )

    Either way, I don't think you should actually be taking part in donations, kam187. You're not interested in development of Galaxy 'cause you're selling it )

    I suggest you also add the link to your signature, along (or instead?) the sale ad.

    Nah horribly wrong = drakaz decides to stop, doesnt want the galaxy, or buys one already.

    I dont really care what the difference is. I told him i'll ship it tommorow, but he insists i wait a few days to make sure i dont get 0!

    Naruvam: its all done through paypal. which sucks for alot of countries :(

    Thanks Kam for this chipin. But i repeat, i will never owe anything to anyone, and you can expect anything from me.

    If you donate for this chipin, you donate for thanks me for Galaxo and recovery, not for 2.0 or 2.1.

    For sure, IF i have time, motivation, girlfriend comprehensive, and another Galaxy, i will try to rebuild a 2.0 or 2.1 for galaxy. But i promise nothing.

    You are warned and you give in every state of consciousness.

    can you reuse mustymod work on sec ril?

    Drakaz knows that he failed because of cdma, the thing that musty disabled in his rom, so it shouldn't be that difficult to get past rild now?

    And that's exactly why it's called a donation. It's not a paycheck.

    It's clear you cannot make any guarantees.

    But of all this things, I'm sure that motivation is the one you have plenty of, and I know it's not for the money, because if it were you wouldn't even bother to build Galaxo. ;)

    Please don't feel pressured, drakaz. If 2.0 doesn't work out, consider this donation (I can only speak for myself, but I believe the other participants will feel the same) as a thank you for the work you've done so far, just like you said.

    So we've joined teams with the french guys (fandroid). There's now a project page


    And an svn. They've only just been created so its all empty at the moment.

    We've also merged channels on irc (irc.freenode.com #i7500). Finally a co-ordinated effort :)

    PLEASE join us if you want to help, hang around, keep us company, or would like to help us in developing and want SVN access.

    Guys, someone said in the donation comments you were from 4pda.ru. Would you spread the word about the donation at that Russian forum?

    Pretty fast! Half the sum in about 3 hours! I'd like to gather money too :D, just can't find the occasion )

    hahaha, I think chipin helps alot. Because otherwise people think 'oh someone else will do it', or 'i bet there's thousands in donations already'. With chipin its plain to see for everyone.

    Donated, not only for the slightest chance of getting android 2.0, but mainly as a thank you for drakaz ,kam187, Rastaman and this whole forum, for the help to everyone - they've helped a lot for me, and lots of other people.

    thanks guys!

    Excellent idea. Chipped.

    Agreed, no obligations Drakaz and others. Donations are a thank you for all the work that's been done by the community, if nothing else comes from it, fair enough. The information and help here are worth more than I have donated.
    I'd rather donate to the community than give Samsung any more of my money.

    And thats a bit more from me. Using IK5 atm but have used Glaxo until then. Drakaz has already kept from crying over waiting months on end for this phone.
