Default LG G2 vs flashaholics

As good as the G2 is (I have D800) it really sucks in a major area, that most of us come to XDA for, flashing tons of custom roms. I switched from the iphone 3gs about 4 years ago to a Galaxy SkyRocket and got hooked. The SkyRocket was not even that popular of a phone being sold by only one carrier and the amount different ROMS I had a choice of was insane. And Xposed framework was not even out yet, and if you look at the forum for the SGH-I727, it is still going strong, stronger than the G2 for that matter. Hell if I could have put multi-rom or Ubuntu on my SkyRocket, I would still use it. The G2 is rated as best phone of 2013 and carried on several carriers and it is downright boring in flash land, I am actually tempted to look at the iPhone 6 (not really), though I will definitely bail on this G2 and scoop up the Nexus 6 as soon as I can preorder. I wonder if anyone from LG ever creeps through the xda forums, they would probably be able to correlate one phone companies high sales directly to how easy the phone is to play with, just saying. For right now my flashing habit is kept in check by flashing roms to my SkyRocket even though I am not using it, pretty sad.
Just make it work right

Ive actually been satisfied with the g2. Hopefully youve seen the main g2 dev and original dev areas on xda. I came from the lg spectrum. It has less its whole lifespan than the g2 had its first month.

Just like the previous post...if you're looking to flash...look in here -> http://forum.xda-developers.com/lg-g2/development this has a bunch of ROMs that are for most variants of the G2. If you're just looking in the AT&T section...its extremely limited.

The dev section is pretty good, I have flashed a lot of ROMS not in the At&t thread, I should add that I understand that nobody has to make a rom for us to flash but other than stock (G2, Flex, G Pro 2) based roms our phone is hurting. CM/AOSP based roms have been struggling to get past some of the LG related issues auto-rotate, bluetooth, file transfer, audio, you name it. I will say that Kernel development is pretty kick ass.

I looked in the g2 development section . there are actually quite a lot of development going on for this phone. It makes sense for them to post there and make roms that aim for all variants

I wonder if it's the locked bootloaders that relegate certain phones like the G2 to second-class status. Or maybe it's the Nexus 5 in this case.
