What happened? I know they got the money/ it was very close, now its been months and nothing....
A stealth Kickstarter for Gateway? A Caribbean cruise for two? An unpublicized decapping that led nowhere?
Who knows. Write off the loss, we got homebrew.
They required 2000 $ but when they got it they needed $ 300 more.
The website says: "Total Raised: $2000.10 USD".......
they got the extra 300, mercluke posted proof he donated the rest
I think its time to face facts the guy ran off with the money
A little after he/she announce the +$300 some one donated it but the total never raised
I would have to agree with this....
Am I missing something, or do you mean smea's exploit? That is either not being released or will be released when improvements are made, and the decapping would have helped with this (unless 3dbrew done mapped everything idk?).
It's definitely dead. It's sad to admit but it was probably a scam the entire time.
pirates getting pirated by pirates
I thought known devs were behind the decapping fund? (That, or it was Gateway the whole time)
The whole thing seemed sketchy the entire time to me. First, they want people to donate such a large amount of money to something that shows very little evidence to support their cause, and when they finally reach their donation goal, they say "oh yeah, we need $300 more."
I'm just saying it seemed like a scam to me the whole time, but that really proves it if they don't know what they're going to need before they say it. I feel bad for all the people that donated.
You all got jipped.
yeah afaik, this^
Others vouched for the fund publicly. When I asked Megazig vouch and others to vouch/cover money donated if they believed it was genuine...he vouched in pm. I took him at his word knowing he told the truth about Wii U stuff before. Thread closed and I was wondering what happened. People laughed but maybe it was appropriate apprehension? I still hope it was not a trick. He would not vouch in public, he did not say he would return contributions either...but he did vouch for the ones who vouched for this guy behind the fund (Megazig).
Regardless, go by reputation in the future. Dan Rosenburg with Android delivers and does not burn anyone...last I checked anyway. If Marcan started this fund it may not be shady. I believed Megazig, so I look forward to the end game of this. Good luck guys.
Well that just clears everything up.
Those are actual details. Thread closed about that point. Nobody really seems to have updates. A known group vouched for this guy with the fund. I don't think they were lying. They are well known.
*cough* wiikey team and the people behind gateway *cough*
I don't get the reference. Ukey team is known. Those guys will talk with people. Obviously the carts are real. Personally, I've flamed megazig and others. I gave it up. If he and his buddies vouched that is for the donating members to decide on credibility. I don't trust them at all. EBay gives % of trust basically. Amazon does a similar thing for sellers. Over the internet, based on hope...not for me to do. No offense, but my wife said, "Idiots for trusting random people on the internet."
Ick... so no word still... I had almost completely forgot about this.
at this point, it's very unlikely, but hopefully we can get lucky and something will be said.
EDIT: I wonder...
the group they were going to use for the decapping service was EAG... and I've found this page...
I wonder if the decapping group never got further than that page and just decided, fuck it, change of plans, lets just take the money.
