I have been an active member in the i9500 forum for quite some time now. I'm proud of the way our existing developers have made us a usable, in fact almost stable CM11 ROM. I applaud them for their genuine efforts. But I recently got the Nexus 5 and previously had the Galaxy S3 i9300. Being an avid flasher, I cant help but feel dissatisfied with the level of development we have for our current device.
So what I propose is this. Let's request developers to come and develop for us. Let's send mails, post in other forums, tweet to them and do whatever it takes. We have a solid base in CM already. I'm sure we can have at least some devs who'd be interested in coming and developing and look at this device as a challenge. I have already started this process with inviting Yank (those with S3 would be familiar with his work). He says he's bogged down with other devices but I'm sure if enough of us request him, he'll help us with his work.
Lastly, I'd like to thank @Alberto96, @runedrune, @intervigil, @AndreiLux, @al_iraqi, @iamsachin and everyone else who has contributed to this device.
Please post your thoughts or comments below. Let's take this initiative to make our device supported by maximum number of developers.
