I currently have 4 android devices -- 2 EVO-4g's, and 2 Galaxy s5's. All rooted. I honestly enjoyed working with the EVO's. But the Galaxys? Ugh. If you ain't got Winblows, you're pretty much up a creek. I'd love to contribute any way I can. I own, and operate several Internet-facing servers (FreeBSD), and have a bunch of "spares" that can be readily tailored for any (strange?) task. Please keep me in the loop.
