Because we love stock roms and bloat so much).
I really do feel bad for them though, even if most would never admit it's bothering them. I hope somebody finds an exploit soon enough.
Amen to that. I may have to move to the M8 if only to get away from the seemingly clear, Apple like cult level of denial going on over there with the VZW S5. Glad to see some here are keeping it honest with the M8 with a slight disappointment, but not really a sacrifice on the camera. I'm going back to my MDK S4, while I pray level heads prevail. I've got no problem sitting back as seeing how things play out as people think delusional happy thoughts in hopes that they will manifest into root access.
