I'll keep trying but not looking good. I could be wrong but I'm thinking if we're not getting into any low level chipset / hardware things (since the CN firmware has DV enabled fully) and we're more or less try to merge the best of the US and with the best of the CN then I have a feeling any old knowledgeable Android dev could accomplish that.
Maybe it's time to just post the bounty (maybe just say it's "generous" so we're not showing all our cards, although it wouldn't be hard to find it here) in one of the main XDA forums and see what kind of response we get.
This should not be an issue for a good developer, well most of it anyways. The problem is you really need one that has the device and also the energy to go at this full blast. Most of us Developers like a challenge so that's how you sell this project to one.
