Default So Is Anyone Working On A Custom ROM For The Transfix?

It seems most other Cricket phones have optimised ROMs within a few weeks of their release. At the moment most people barely have this phone rooted, and I'm curious to know if anyones working on digging around in it, seeing as how the source code was released. This is one of the more powerful and fully featured Cricket android phones. It'd be a shame to see it wallow around un-optimised.

I actually have root access to the phone, but I'd like custom recovery and an optimised ROM. The phone has some decent hardware and power to it (for an entry level device) and it's a shame it's wasted on all the useless bloatware it came with and this idiotic "DRM protected content" thing.

If I knew what I was doing, I'd write my own ROM for it, but I can't. With any luck someone gives this guy some love. It's a good phone.

I think the biggest problem right now is there is no custom recovery for it yet. I looked at how to create one, and it's baffling, especially for samsung devices. If this was a test phone, id be more than happy to try, but since it's the only phone I have, and I have non-deep pockets, I'm worried about futzing around with it too much.

I was scared to root it (since no stock ROM is available anywhere), which I eventually did, set the kernel at performance, and get 1800 on the antutu score. If this thing had CM7, a custom kernel, or even a custom-stockish rom, it would fly.
