I would really love to see Cyanogenmod for Samsung Galaxy Express GT-I8730. I was very surprised that it didn't exist already, as it is quite popular in my region. Fingers crossed! :)

Yes, I support kayrobes! I got the Galaxy Express (GT-I8730) and I would appreciate Cyanogenmod Version for my device. Are you guys planing on making a release for this particular device? Thank you!

+1 over here. it seems to be quite a popular phone, it's pretty well priced for the specs, so I was surprised to see there's no official CM support.

I would really like to see Cyanogenmod Roms on this device. And since it is similar to the S4 Mini (same chipset, cpu, gpu) maybe it wouldn't be that hard to do.
I hope you support this device

If someone knows a good Tutorial for Porting and whatnot, or wan't to join forces on doing so, please send me a PM so that we can work together.

I would also like to use cyanogenmod on this device. I spent nearly two hours to deactivate all the bloatware on it...  but nevertheless its fast, robust, with a very good display / LTE support- and not so expensive like all the highend phones.
I think cyanogenmod would run incredible fast on this device :-) . Hope its coming soon , thanks in advance

Cyanogenmod for the Express would be *AWESOME*! I mainly say that because I dont think there is any current custom ROM for the express (and because cyanogenmod is my favourite). The SII and SIII are quite similar, so porting it would be quite easy I guess :) I hope it comes to the Express, its a great all round phone in my opinion

[edit]
almost a thousand people have viewed this but there are barely any posts? Im new to how this fourm works, but if you have an express and want cyanogenmod, post something and hopefully the mods will look at this! :)

Hi,

I would really need a Cyanogenmod for Samsung Galaxy express i8730.
Vote +1.
It's becoming a popular phone in Belgium now as well.
I think it's very sad that we don't even have our own forum category, so we can at least group all information we do find.
But a android 4.3 ROM would be the best!

I'm willing to test it and give feedback.

Thank you!
Koen

Anything in particular that prevents quick development on CyanogenMod for the GT-i8730?
Chipset manufacturers that doesn't freely provide their documentation or suchlike?

Anyways...

+1 For this... I'm planning to buy one (it has a well-known brand and a good spec/price relation).
Samsung released source code for this device (Just input GT-I8730 in the search bar)! So it should be more easy to port the device.
