Default Why are there no enough ROMs for Z2?

Hi Guys

I used to have Samsung Galaxy Note 2 there are hundreds of ROM for that device or any Samsung devices. Now Im using this amazing device but there is no enough developer working on it. Why is that? There are only 2 ROMs I can see active doing updates all the time.

Yeh, but most of the ROMS are nearly identical. Here we have a some stock based and some CM/AOSP based but all are different.
It was the same with the S3, hundreds of ROMs but nearly all the same, only 1 or 2 were "proper" roms, developed and not "cooked"
There are at least 3 stock ROMS and at least 2 CM/AOSP roms here.
What exactly are you looking for?

Since the phone isnt out in the us, there arent many developers...

Im looking something like AOSB Project

There is nothing like that in here. CarbonROM looks nice but its unofficial. I dont flash unofficial ROMs.

Stock ROMs are boring unless there are addons, tweaks etc.

I really like AOSP style ROMs but I cant see any in here.

Phone is not out in the US? Are you serious? I have seen someone posting deal on General Thread for Z2 $599.

I do beleive that alot of devs may be waiting for stable release of Official CM11 since AOKP,Pa and a few other roms of such are based on Cyanogenmod

Themer installs fine on the stock rom I'm using it myself. Unless you mean the CM Themes
