LOL. This is funny to me. I've had the M8 for two weeks now. Today I took the liberty of posting my first release of GPE for the VZW M8.
I do apologize tho if this was not quick enough for you. I popped over here to see if I could maybe find firmware, but instead I find non-creators whining about how depressed they are.
I apologize if this comes off as flaming...but you know what I did when I wasn't happy with the ROM offerings for my device? I sat down and figured out how to make my own ROM, and I've been doing so ever since. The community isn't some magical group of people who have secret android manuals lying about that we keep from the rest of the world. It's folks with a little knowhow who leverage the resources on this and other sites in order to bend the OS to do what we want of it.
Or, to summarize...if you don't like it, either do something about it or shut up.
