The XDA community is always hard at work. From reviving older phones to run the latest Android versions to providing the most feature-rich ROMs for all kinds of phones to building a bounty fund for rooting Verizon devices, XDA is home to some of the best Android developers and ROM builders for our (free) flashing pleasure.
Mokee ROM for the Galaxy S5 has finally added support for the built-in fingerprint scanner on an AOSP ROM nonetheless.
