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.

Being a port maintainer most probably requires one to own the device at least, a top-end and expensive one in the case of S4. I can understand current maintainers questioning whether it makes sense to make that investment themselves.

They may as well be just waiting for free devices from Samsung, or even invites to various conferences, media/entertainment events, etc. All inclusive.

Oh and btw, users are still to make their decision too, of whether custom ROMs would be necessary on S4 at all. One still has to see what Samsung has got in store for their latest flagship. Maybe less bloat and more frequent updates?
