I got myself the THL W200 in late January.
I repartitioned the internal space and everything is working fine on my end.
No issues with SIM card reading or whatnot.
Software works good, and I also learned that MediaTek apparently released the source-code for out MT6589T months ago, which means that Cyanogen will probably follow suit pretty soon.
But, if I'm not mistaken, THL stated (or was at least hinting) that they will release the KitKat update for our W200.
I kinda wish I waited a bit to get the octa-core version (THL W200s), but I didn't know it was in the works back when I ordered it... and at any rate, this will be more than enough for my needs.
Battery capacity on the other hand is not something I'm too happy with (THL got stingy on this one - should have been at least 2000 mAh, or 2500 mAh), but they stated that they might release a bigger capacity version (I guess we shall see)... still, the phone is capable of making it through about a day or two with relatively moderate usage (if you are not gaming of course).
Any news on Cyanogen options for this phone?
I've been searching info on it and there are some indications of it probably coming soon, but nothing substantial to be honest.

Hi, I followed this tutorial and got stuck on step 4e, when it rebooted it started saying "encryption unsuccessful" which sends me back to the recovery menu, here's a vid of what it's doing...
I did save a recovery.img file from that unclesomething app, if that helps?
side note, while trying to fix it I formatted the SD card, hopefully this hasn't killed my chances at restoring my phone? :S
