Over the last few years, we have been asked countless times how one
could make a donation to the project. Until very recently, it was not at
all possible but thanks to the hard work of the Free Software Foundation
team, especially John Sullivan and Zak Rogoff, it is now possible for
the FSF to accept donations on the behalf of the Replicant project.
Donations will help us buy new devices and port Replicant to them as
well as help us attend free software events to promote Replicant at.
Devices donations can be accepted as well but we carefully select the
devices we want to work on, based on how much they respect freedom, so
we might decline some offers.
You might want to consider making a donation to our project, any amount
will help, from the FSF directed donations page for Replicant.
Bitcoin donations are also accepted, at the following address:
We also badly need new developers to help us bring Replicant to more and
more devices as well as improve the status of the currently-supported
devices. As a group effort, Replicant has better chances to succeed and
bring freedom to mobile phone users. We are currently a team of two
developers with less and less time to get involved in the project and
bring new features. Becoming a developer is not even that hard: we have
developer and porting guides available to make it easier for you to get
started and we’ll be there to guide you all along. Even non-technical
people can help to some extent, covering tasks such as building up
documentation or writing announcements for the project if they’re good
enough at it.
Please get in touch with us if you’re interested. The best way to start
is most likely to get a Replicant-supported device and start hacking on
it and if you prove serious enough, we might even use some of the
donations money to provide you with a new device to port Replicant to!
