Who will be our CM dev?

Update: Looks like w00tc0d3 will make CM for the Qualcomm version.

Don't worry... someone will. This device will be to popular not to have CM.

Generally there were 3 developers who maintained samsung devices
1. Codeworkx
2. Entropy512 and
3. Xplodwild
Of them the first 2 have vowed to never waste their time on exynos
Xplodwild is still there but how much time he will have I have no idea..
It will be very difficult to get competent and experienced developers so quickly ..
So initially S4 will definitely be behind in AOSP development IMO

The way Samsung is treating the dev's & developer community I doubt anyone from CM team will be left with Samsung devices in near future :/

If you want CM or AOSP don't buy Samsung's devices. They never have offered any real support toward third party development. Ask Entropy512 and he'll tell you the whole story. They promise something but never live up to their words. I'm sure some people here still remember the Exynos saga.

Default AW: codeworkx will no longer make CM for the S4.

Don't worry, S4 cones with Snapdragon 600, Exynos will be released late summer. I think dev support will be great!

I'm pretty sure development support for this device will be poppin! The S3 and the S2 didn't disappoint.
Just wanna know who our CM developer will be.

I wouldn't be sure of that. The most experienced devs for Exynos are sick of it and won't support S4. Maybe new will come, but will they as good as them?
CM is a community-project so devs are not forced to develop for a device even if it's popular if they want they do. I think S4 will be far behind other AOSP devices. Just take a look at S2 and S3. If you want CM don't for Samsung, go Sony or Nexus. Don't be disappointed about CM on S4 (if it will be released?), you have been warned.

Don't forget that for the majority it will be a Qualcomm device, not Exynos....
Samsung Galaxy SII i9100
CyanogenMod 11.0
Android 4.4.4
