Wouldn't it be grand if manufactures would just put either TWRP or CWM on the devices to begin with? Maybe both and the user can choose which one to install and use.

I too am a loyal TWRP user and will also wait for a version that is Fit, Form, and Function confirmed and tested. Thanks guys!

There is already one... Just search the forum... Only a few sdcards (mostly UHS-1 speeds) are not compatible...

It would. But the general public can't be trusted with that much control - as evidenced by hundreds of threads on these very fora. Manufacturer warranty returns for bricked and malfunctioning devices would skyrocket.
