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.

Linaro (sp?) is doing a bunch of work in the mainline kernel scheduler to support aMP (asymmetric multi-processing). This would allow you to access *all* of the CPU cores (A7 and A15) and gain finer-grained control over which processes go to which cores. My guess is that it won't appear in Android until 5.0. But, at least it's being worked on.
