|Update 2013/11/01: Funding of this project is complete, we appreciate the support we have received and thank all the contributors. We are also grateful to sclstore.fr online shop for excellent service and help in acquiring a PiPO M9 pro tablet. The device has been ordered and should arrive by next week, watch for some cool custom firmware updates soon !|
If you still want to help us to pay the bills for our server hosting costs and software licenses, feel free to check our Donation page.
The majority of custom firmwares build on our site are made without having an actual device as we can’t afford to buy many tablets. With some models, such as the PiPO M9 pro not being able to test our firmwares this can be a problem due to the specific hardware and manufacturer customization.
We are currently looking to buy a PiPO M9 pro tablet with the help of the community, everybody is welcome to support the funding of a PiPO M9 Pro that will help us to offer optimized and tested firmwares.
The PiPO M9 pro tablet cost from aliexpress.com or other Chinese marketplaces is about $300 with express shipping. We are bringing 33% of the fund with hopes that the community could contribute with the rest ($200). Professional tablet vendors are welcome to support us as well with a discounted model or even a second hand tablet.
We are planning a period of a month from now (that is 24th of November) to achieve this funding. If the goal is not reached, all the people who donated will be reimbursed and no tablet will be acquired.
Thanks everybody for your support.
