    9th post ---

    Im not sure about paying $2 a month for it yet since i have no idea what its going to be like and im not too sure about a nightly build every single night.

    Anyone have any information on that?

    I am excited about getting it though.

    I think the 2 bucks is for people who want access to the nightly builds on a monthly basis. Doubt the actual release will cost anything. If it does I would still have to give it a try. UD on original Droid was my favorite.

    This completely defeats the purpose of open source. What a joke.

    I read about this lastnight. The 2 bucks is to help ensure their ftp's don't go down, and for those that want to access the nightly builds. The releases of the final builds will be free. Don't get all worked up over 2 bucks....its not like you're being forced to pay it. Its a donation.

    I'm not worked up about the price... obviously 2 bucks isn't much it just goes completely against the principles that android was created on... Seems a little ridiculous to pay for open source software if you ask me.

    I just didn't understand what they mean by nightly builds.... I wouldn't pay for that but my donations always equal more than their $2 a month asking price. Especially when the updates are good.

    i hate to say this..... but i have a hosting plan for my websites... cost me roughly $285 for 3 yrs... 99.99% uptime..... unlimited add on domains and unlimited bandwidth transfer....(Hosting24.com - First Class Web Hosting Services) more than likely anyone who has a website or does roms and has their own websites uses such a plan..... so for $2 to keep the ftp from crashing is pretty much a joke...

    thats why we have a payal "donate" button... to support the developers..... i have done some custom boot animations for the DX and i havent charged anyone a fee to keep the FTP server from crashing... such a crock

    Yeah, and you would never donate for all the hard work if that was the case, just continue to leech.

    Why is it when someone spends so much time and effort for the benefit of everyone else, everyone expects it for free.

    Hopefully this dude isn't seriously going to charge two dollars a month for a rom.. I was actually looking forward to this.

    I donate enough to cover this charge for a couple of years in just one donation. So as usual these guys dont charge much if anything when they do charge.
    These guys do a fantastic job and deserve all of the donations they get. Is it just me or is every really good app either free or only a couple of bucks anyways. Personally I get more entertainment from this than a 12.00 ticket for a movie...again my personal opinion. So if the rom is good I will donate anyways...don't mean to offend anyone and I know times are tough.
