Why all the focus on flagship devices???
Since long I have been a great fan of xda and custom roms and open source ideology. When i started looking up xda back in 2010, i was convinced that this is the place where i can find latest development for my device (at that time samsung galaxy i5801).
But today when i look at things, i don't think the same. I see the latest and the greatest rom developer here, officially supporting only nexus devices or other flagship devices. The unofficial ports are never perfect.
I dont understand the point. Nexus devices already get the latest rom by google. Most flagship also get the same from their OEM. Shouldn't the developers focus on providing the latest updates to the devices which have been forgotten by there manufacturers??
Take for example,
1- galaxy i5801 was updated till android 2.2 by samsung. Xda couldn't provide a single fully functional android 2.3 rom (marcellusbe cm 7.2 alpha9 has battery issues, -- just saying before anybody points out)
2- Micromax is the second largest android phone seller in india. But not even a single of its devices is officially supported by cyanogenmod, paranoid android, aokp, or omni etc.
I mean if you can officially support companies like micromax, you can get much more donations for development because micromax doesnt update its devices itself.
