Default Might get an M8vzw soon, wanna see how development is

So I had planned to stick with my old d2vzw (Verizon S3) through next year, but I think it just physically died on me. So I may need to upgrade way, way sooner.

The M8, I believe is the only phone on Verizon currently capable of flashing AOSP based ROMs. Can anyone chime in with how development is?

I've seen Liquid (my fav) and a GPE port are on this forum, but I don't see anything else. How is the ROM selection overall?

I can't leave Verizon, not an option. I hate them so ****ing much.

I am loving the GPE rom. Haven't had any issues at all.

There's a lot more roms available than just the ones you see on the VZW M8 forum. Check out the development forums on the regular M8 forum. Most of them work on Verizon but you need to read to make sure a given rom works on Verizon phones.

Don't judge a book by it's cover, better yet just read the back...

There's plenty of roms and tweaks available for the m8. I personally recommend it. I'm using the viperone Rom which is my fav as of right now.

I'm using the Google Play Edition ROM and couldn't be happier.

M8 is not the only vz phone that has AOSP ROMs available, G2, Moto X for an example. just have to look.

I've always been partial to CM myself. Love the M8, by far the best phone ever IMHO. I've used gpe port and viper but keep going back to cm.

If you want to get into development, I've never seen any project as well documented as cm. Their wiki can take any noob and have them building from source in just a couple hours.
