Another couple of months passed by, bringing its share of improvements
to Replicant 4.0, so we felt it was time to release a new batch of
images. First thing’s first, let’s talk a bit about the fundraising
program we launched thanks to the Free Software Foundation: it was a
huge success! Over $20,000 were collected over the past two months,
thanks to your help. We really didn’t expect that much money and it will
greatly cover for our needs, which include buying new devices and
covering for travel-related expenses, allowing us to attend events such
as FOSDEM. On a sad note, we are more and more looking for new
developers to get involved in the project: both GNUtoo and I are very
busy and cannot contribute to the project as much as we’d like to, so
things will keep moving a bit slowly, compared to what it used to be.

However, this new batch comes with a good share of improvements: the
Galaxy Note (first generation, international GSM model) was added to the
list of supported devices with this release (thanks to your financial
support that enabled us to buy the device), which brings that list up to
10 devices. Camera support was added to the Galaxy S3 and other smaller
improvements were made as well. As usual, you can checkout the complete
changelog, download the images from the ReplicantImages page and find
installation instructions as well as build guides on the Replicant wiki.

Since we received complaints about the Replicant installation process,
all the guides were rewritten to be device-specific and include clear
and step-by-step instructions, which should make it easier for everyone
to install Replicant on their device. Moreover, the newly-launched
forums and our mailing list make it possible to get help from our
community, about the installation or anything else you want to talk
