Prompt [Q] Replace Samsung OS customisations?

Hi guys,

Not sure what to search for(I've done a bit and couldn't find what I was after) so sorry if this has been answered before.

I'm wanting to make my device more nexusy/googly ie get the stock settings back etc. I've frozen most of the samsung apps and enabled softkeys through build.prob and a few other changes.

Couple of things I want would be the google home button circle gestures where you press and hold the soft home button and the ring pops up - at present this doesn't do anything at all.

I'd also like to either modify the settings to either appear less Samsungy or to replace with the stock settings.

Not sure if this is possible but just thought I'd throw it out there. I'm not keen on using a custom ROM that's touchwiz based as I don't really want to make any changes I don't know about and CM has some bugs that I'm not really happy to live with.

If anyone wonders why I'm asking(ie 'why didn't you just buy a nexus') I've recently fell out of love with Sammy due to some of their strategic decisions eg Tizen among other things so it's more recent - and since I rooted to improve battery power I thought I'd see what I could do.

I haven't seen any bug free custom compiled ROMs for the Note 3 at all, kind of touched the topic of custom ROMs in my post above.

Only bug free ROMs I've seen are Samsung based ROMs.

I'm sure if working AOSP ROMs were all groovy and functionally, CM wouldn't have so many issues at this point and AOKP wouldn't be using CM as a base.

It depends. I've been using an AOSP base for a couple of months already and it's great.
