Default Need opinion on ROM

What ROM would be best for my father? He would like the 4.4.x on his unlocked galaxy nexus. Is there one out there that's extremely stable, has google apps already in the ROM and has the Google now launched built in?

Like you, I'm not a GNex expert. I'm helping my wife with flashing her GNex which my brother gave to her after she broke her own phone. But, I'm wondering if it would help if you could tell us which carrier he's on?

ShinyROM will probably be the best for your father.

No, no and yes. If you want a stable rom you need to use stock. Any rom needs to have the gapps flashed seperately because of copyright. There is one rom that has the gapps in it but that can not be named here. Almost every rom with kitkat has the gel launcher. So just try some. Then see whats best..

SlimKat or CM would be your best bet. A lot of other ROMs are pretty stable too but those are the ones I've had as daily drivers for an extensive time.


ROM: barebones crDroid
Kernel: AK nightlies
Kernel settings: smartmax_eps governor, conservative gpu, intelliplug, cpu/touch boost off, cfq i/o

"Best" is subjective. If he/you are to busy to flash/try different roms; stick with stock.
