    CyanogenMod has to be built from source code preferably by a developer that owns this phone. At the moment it doesn't seem that a dev owns one. This phone is fairly new so just give it some time. For many phones development doesn't start 2-4 months down the line.

    I don't want you to get your hopes up, so I'll also let you know that some phones never get any devs to work on them. This is usually do to the carrier they are on.

    Out of the no contract carriers, Metro PCS would be the best bet in regards to development. Their phones seem to usually get one or two devs. This is probably cuz their $60 plan is unlimited everything including 4G and they have merged with T-mobile.

    That sounds good.

    I don't know the extent of your knowledge on development, but I would recommend making a custom rom before you try and build from code.

    With a custom rom you'll learn most of the basics like decompile/compile, xml editing, and writing updater scripts just to name a few.

    And yes I agree, you have some long nights ahead of you lol.
