Anyone who owned an OG Droid or a Droid X from back in the day is more than likely familiar with developer "Kejar31". He along with Jrummy is responsible for what was probably the most popular Rom for the Droid X "Liberty". This was one of the first fully customizable roms to run on a device with a locked bootloader. Kejar exited the spotlight and let Jrummy kind of run things for a while, but reentered with the Gummy Rom on the Galaxy Nexus and other devices. This Rom has been going strong for the past few years thanks in part to the donation of a server which was free for the development team to use. Gummy rom has not accepted donations since it figures they do this all for fun anyhow. Recently the guy who has been donating the server space has had some personal life stuff come up and has decided that he should focus his time and finances toward his family which is totally understandable.
Team Gummy decided to accept donations for the server cost alone. They were going to buy and use their own server instead of renting one. The cost was going to be about $2k. In one and a half days they only received one donation. They have since decided to cancel donations and the future of the Gummy Rom looks pretty bleak. It seems as if the only hope for the continuation of this rom may be if another generous contributor steps up and lends the guys some server space. If nothing happens between today and October 12th the Rom will be dead for now. This is a sad day. We can only hope that Kejar will find another way to contribute, because we all love his work!
