HAHAHAHHAHA - I know what you are saying. I keep checking like every couple hours to see if ANYTHING has been posted about AOSP.

I know we bought these phones WITH touchjizz on them, but I for one thought for SURE we would have CM or something by now, and NEVER thought that I would be stuck with TW...

You guys really hate TW that much? It's definitely grown on me over the years. I'm actually happy with it now, especially with this phone. I just hate all the bloat.

Funny how people complain about a phone's stock UI, when they knew buying it, it came with it. I personally dont like TW, but I have removed most of it myself. Using custom launcher, Xposed and pretty soon I will load my own phone/contacts themed and TW is pretty much gone.

Its pretty simple to do all this yourself, even if you have 0 experience in doing so. As long as you can read and follow instructions, you will be fine.

YES! I really only bought this phone for the specs....

I have owned MANY Samsung phones in the past, and have ALWAYS used AOSP roms instead.

I know I bought this phone with TW on it, but since most Samsung phones get so much DEV support, I figured it wouldn't take long before we have CM....but it has taken longer then I thought it would.

Me too, I love Sammy phones and I used to not care much for their software. I did run some CM stuff on my N2, buy went back to TW as it was more stable and with the spen, I preferred to have TW software. I do like the theming options much better on CM, and of course the smaller ROMs.

I just think that in terms of usability, TW finally surpassed CM on the Note 2. Other than a quicker boot up and some more free space, TW was superior in my humble opinion.

I won't even flash CM out of curiosity on this phone. I don't feel like I'm missing anything, not to mention, I find the N3 to be a lot more temperamental than any other phone I've owned, so I'd imagine CM would only increase issues.

Just my .02.

Keywords: light ROM, theme engine. I can make my phone look like whatever I please whenever I please. Granted most launchers come with themes but doesn't theme your whole phone. Roms really light makes phone run smoother, snappier, allows for more space for apps and stuff. Just my .02

Agreed, aosp/cm on any other phone is a must(really hate HTC sense, even more than tw) but you lose so much of what makes the note 3 unique when you flash aosp/cm on it. For some that's no big deal but for the rest of us that know how to debloat tw roms and set it up so it basically looks like aosp anyways, we're losing more than gaining anything. Especially since cm always has bugs that need to be worked out, when tw just work right from the start.

Like I said.. Every other phone I had that wasn't a note I longed to have aosp on it instant, now that I have one of the best phones (if not the best lol) I feel no urge at all to try aosp. For those that do that's cool too, with this phones specs and screen real estate it's like having your own super friggisweet Nexus device, with longer update processes.
