Unhappy [Q] No custom ROMs?

I'm a power android user and I've had androids for years now. Ever since i discovered custom roms, I've not once bought an android that i didn't flash a custom rom onto the first day. Especially with Samsungs.

But somehow, on this wonderful tablet with amazing potential, just one (very early alpha) rom is available. For a tablet that's been out for 3 months, this worries me.

Do you guys think some devs will get into porting popular roms for this device or is this just an xda-dead tablet?

(Holy **** touchwiz is horrible)

Nexus 5
Nexus 7
HTC WP8X
Xperia Tablet Z
Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4

Then you need to learn about how restrictive the Exynos SOC means you're pretty much stuck with only stock based custom roms.

That's pretty depressing.

Not to say that Aosp or CM roms won't exist (they already do), but they will forevermore be more buggy compared to their SD counterparts.
