I’m sorry you feel that way. Maybe explain how you expect it to be ?
why should we buy hardware if RK-Tunes has it bough and we could work with him together? How about a smart use of money instead of blindly buying hardware?
And from my previous posts i think i made it clear how i would approach such a project.
Very few will donate for hardware without a plan behind it? Who will be the owner? What is the plan after getting it .. too many unanswered questions.

Please don’t take this the wrong way. I don’t want to come across as argumentative What you’ve said has merit and you aren’t wrong. I’m just going to lay out what I think that’s different so that it’s clear.
why should we buy hardware if RK-Tunes has it bough and we could work with him together?
Because the hardware doesn’t just get us a BIN it also gives the ability to create a communal bench flash test kit when combined with the spare TCU we have.
We make that first binary public for others to see and work with. Anyone can send an altered file to the test kit.
If we just pay RK we only get RK and he may not have all of the skills, equipment and time we need. he’s not likely to give us much of his time, effort and skill for free and he’s unlikely to invest in a test bed without knowing for sure it’s going to make him money. More moneythan we have

How about a smart use of money instead of blindly buying hardware?
It’s not blind as we’ll have the ability to crowdsource and test anything that any developer wants to test, professionals included.


And from my previous posts i think i made it clear how i would approach such a project.
Yes, I think what you said was we should ask anyone to bid, we would fundraise up to that bid amount and if they’re successful they get the money. Is this correct ?
I assume you disagree tbat the market for this is more lucrative than the money we will raise. If the whole 135,335,M3 and z4 market isn’t enough to convince proffesionals to spend time on this already then why would they do it for less money ?
An amateur might bid, but is less likely to be successful on his own or in combination with others, without an expensive test bed.

Very few will donate for hardware without a plan behind it?
I’ve laid out the plan as my humble brain understands it and I’m donating and hopefully others will too. Hope drives us forward
Who will be the owner?
Of the hardware? it can be hired out for free under a deposit system with @doublespaces as the trustee. We’re donating so ... we don’t get anything in return except hope
[
What is the plan after getting it .. too many unanswered questions.
We generate our first Bin and we start work on what it takes to crack this nut. There’s a number of very smart people here already watching and learning

This is my humble understanding of it all. Apologies for the bits I know I have wrong

We are actually quite a bit further along than you know, you just aren't part of that thread. If the community wants to help financially, this method does that and guarantees at minimum we get a few people flashed and possibly even refund the donors depending on how we go about it. If you don't like the process that is entirely ones decision.

On second thought I've disabled the donation campaign. We will proceed without public funding and if necessary will find a private source of funding (our own pockets) and information.

I still don't mind putting money towards finding a solution.
Ultimately, the tool was supplemental. It could also be distributed on a deposit to ensure at minimum we get some folks flashed. In the end it will be the hard work of those donating their time and knowledge that will succeed, this tool would just add another angle to view the situation.

If people are going to feel it's a bad investment or their money is held hostage or something, I can understand but I've got no interest in fielding those messages. Some people give just for the sake of helping and other people need to know it directly attributes to the end goal. In this case, it opens up opportunities but I can't say it is mandatory to move forward. In any case, the 'donations' are just more tax for me to report anyway so I'm good.
