Supposedly, there's a way to make every ROM SS compatible. I think it has to do with removing the boot.img, but I'm sure there's more it than that. I've seen people complain about there being no SS ROMs, then someone mentions this solution, but nobody takes action. Honestly, it's going to be up to someone that has a locked down device to start putting out these SS compatible ROMs.
Then, you will run into kernel issues like we used to run into on the older SS ROMs. Let's say you want CM10.2 that is 4.3 based. Your stock ROM is 4.1.2, so you'll run into kernel issues like an inop camera, WiFi, etc. Honestly, your best bet is to find one of the 2 SS compatible stock ROMs that are the same kernel as you and use Xposed to modify it. There's someone on DroidRzr that used Xposed on his X with a stock ROM and he has been able to load up the custom CM themes.
