Default [Q] How come there are no good AOSP roms for the i9500?

I understand the source code for the i9500 kernel has been released, wasn't this the limitation rom modders had for releasing AOSP based roms?

There's a lot of code on the processor side that's proprietary which Samsung won't & don't have to release.
If it's important enough to cause you grief if it's lost, back it up. No excuses
Trolling for thanks is lame
Does Samsung's auto-brightness implementation crap drive you to self-harm ? A solution !
Probably the best thread ever posted on XDA
Failure to search is the leading cause of male impotence on XDA
If you don't know how to recover if things go wrong, what are you doing flashing custom roms ?
Donate to you ?? Bahahaaaaahahahahahahaaahahaha !!!
