PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "With the Samsung Galaxy S4 presumably coming soon, many are excited about the possibility of running a more stock Android-based experience, like CyanogenMod, on the hardware. It looks like that's going to be a slower transition than many were hoping, as the current Samsung CM maintainers have said that they have no plans to support the device." If you like custom ROMs, don't buy Samsung. As simple as that.

The general rule of thumb in the Android ROM atm is if CyanogenMod can't make a ROM then it's got to be difficult to make one. That's not to say impossible it's just that when they run into problems most of the others will ALSO run into the same problems. And as to CyanogenMod working on other Samsung phones/devices, yes it does work but it's the whole spirit of needing to give the company a concrete message that creating devices which the comunity can't tailor to their needs ISN'T okay and will be punished by not having our sales. Whether this action actually gets anybody anywhere is a different discussion
