DONATE TO ME
Hi. Sorry to hear you got mugged at knife point, I Opie the police catch whoever was involved.

I sold my HTC one and purchased this device. I was totally in the same position as you, the HTC and served me well. I was using it as my work phone as I am this phone. One thing that annoyed the life out of me on the one was the curved back, it was constantly rocking when I was sending texts etc.. Minor but important . The screen looks like it has been forced in all of the characters look stretched. There is way to much of the metal case showing, it needs a bigger screen in the same size case.. But I still loved it. The music app was nice, blink feed wasn't so bad. It took me a while to grow to like the N5, right now I wouldn't trade back at all. I am running stock rooted with exposed and gravity with bricked kernel and k control. I am yet to try custom ROMs but I expect to soon.

I hope so too. What is this gravity thing you're talking about. So far I
rooted with cf auto
Flashed twrp recovery
Flashed volume mod
Flashed Francos latest version
Used rom tool kit for fonts.

What else should I do? This is nexus day 5 for me.

i can recommend one anti-theft app may help in the future https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ndroid.at_play it installs deep in the system and you can track, lock, wipe or do anything else with remote sms commands.
Current Phone: Nexus 5 Black 16gb - love it
Samsung Galaxy S2 - R.I.P
