The fact that we have a working (and quite usable) version of CM10.1 for our phone without kernel sources is quite amazing in my opinion. We may not have a lot of developers working on our device but the ones that have been are quite dedicated. I'm not sure why anyone would want to stick with the stock LG install anyway as it is an old android version (4.0.4) and IMO CM10.1 is running much better than it already. I guess if you absolutely required NFC or capacitive buttons it would be an issue but those should both be available soon after kernel source is out.
What we need is the Americans to help us. They will eventually I hope. I PMed nygfan760 and he said he'll take a look when he's free. However by the time we get anything going for Canadians, I'll have sold my Optimus G for $400... Can't believe it's only worth $400..
