I agree with @autoprime.
And personally, I'm sick and tired of people begging. Especially those with less than 10 posts, are brand new users to XDA, and who have not contributed anything to the Android community ever. The Devs are NOT obligated by any means to share what they have achieved. If any of you bought this device simply because you wanted root, instead of buying the phone for its functionality, form, etc., then you are a fool. BE PATIENT! If it happens, it happens. Don't expect anything.
Rated 5 stars, because I got the phone for the phone, not for root. And I think it's a great device!
I don't mind asking or investigating whether or not a new flagship phone has what it takes to see ROMS in its future. And I don't think you should intimidate anyone else from doing the same. It's something that many shoppers consider before making an informed decision! For example, I'm a BIG LG G2, G3, and G4 fan. However, I would never own a G5 if I had to use the bogus stock ROM that's practically a poor imitation of an iPhone. I hate iPhones and sure as hell don't want an Android phone that pretends to be one.
With that said, I can't wait to see ROMS for the G5. I'm not begging or asking anything of anyone. I'll just sit back and enjoy the G5 when the software is up to par with the hardware. In the meantime, stroke your ego offline. White knuckle it if you need to... Who are you to disallow people from vocalizing what they want to see come out? They can beg all they want. Developers can pay attention or ignore what people are saying at their own discretion. Developers want their work to be enjoyed by as many people as possible and they (should) take pride in the fact that there is a demand for what they offer. I WANT TO SEE SOME AMAZING ROMS FOR THE G5 AND I'M NOT ASHAMED TO SAY IT.
Thanks to all who are trying to make it happen
