XD+ and XD Development
« on: July 04, 2018, 01:59:30 pm »
Black-Seraph is a developer that has graciously picked up development for the XD+ and the XD. He has already released CleanROM and will be porting LineageOS 15.1 to the XD+. Once he is finished he has promised to pick up the old XD model and port the same LineageOS to the XD as well ( this means OREO for the old XD! ) All that he asked is that someone please send him the devices. I collaborated with https://Dreamesper.com and we sent him and XD+. I was also able to collaborate with https://Dragonbox.de to send him and old model XD. Thanks to both these people for stepping up. The development has started and we will eventually see new roms come out.

Regardless of any donations, these people have already payed and sent him the units. I would still like to ask you to consider giving money towards the devices. I will collect the money and pay the contributors accordingly. Any additional money will go towards the server costs for the S8 tutorials and guides. ( SectionEight.net and XDRescue.com ).

So ask yourself :
Do you have an extra dollar or two?
Yen?
Peso?
Euro?
Pound?
Franc?

Please donate to: https://paypal.me/sectioneight

Shouldn't donation go to Black-Seraph himself who is the one who will probably need to spend hours coding? Mainly with the old XD.

Just a thought. My experience tells me people don't donate too much unfortunately.

I'll donate $10 if the money goes to Black-Seraph. The XD+ needs some fixing before I buy one. But i'm a little confused why there's a middleman?

Black-Seraph has 2 units that we payed into, both of which came from 2 different sponsors. GPD never followed through getting him a free XD/XD+. That is the only reason.

If you want to pay directly into Black-Seraph you can do that as well.

What is LineageOS? Android 8? What else?

What would better: clean ROM or lineageOS?

I've just checked Black-Seraph patreon but I don't read any mention to GPD XD (neither about development or unit arrival). Do you know if GPD XD development is still in Black-Seraph thoughts?

Yeh he is still developing on the xd+. He has come up with several versions on CleanRom for XD+.

https://www.black-seraph.com/project/cleanrom-for-gpd-xd/

He has also received the GPD XD ( original model ) and will work on that once xd+ is finished.

Wow !
As an owner of the first XD, this is Great News! :D

I've Joined the BlackSeraph Patreon to give some support!

If I could ask for something on the original XD, is the Bluetooth dongle support.
In the past Skelton hinted at this, but I don't know for sure how it could be achived.

The hardware must go to the limit !

bt dongle support was removed in android 4.2. Can be readded but it doesn't depend on firmware, but on modifying BT stack or by using libusb via cyanogen style. It's something that require work.
