As many people will soon comment, toolkits aren't recommended by people on here. Short explanation: they don't teach people the process which keeps people from solving simple issues. Seeing as you're using a custom kernel I would flash the factory image of 4.4.4. There's also a thread currently in the general forum about an auto updater which might help me you out as well.

Rooted users should flash a rooted stock zip. It's the easiest and quickest method. Link in my signature under resources section

If its the one from my signature under the resources section, its just a rom It doesnt wipe. Flashing zips via recovery doesnt wipe the data unlike flashing factory images. In fact factory images only wipes data if you flash the userdata.img (which happens if you use the flash-all.bat) but if yo just flash system.img and boot.img, it doesnt wipe anything, although rooted users are best using the zip anyway

Stock is odexed

When you install an app from play, those apps default settings are stored dalvik-cache however apps that come with a ROM use .odex files instead.

With a deodexed ROM , the apps that come with the ROM also use dalvik-cache.

Adding some more info, deodexed ROM's or apps allow for easier theming, with a (questionable or not) small performance loss.

True. I ALWAYS go for deodexed as it's easier for theming and mods, This excludes xposed however. There may be a small perormance hit being deodexed, but customisation wins out for me.
That said, those wanting stock experience should stick with odexed

Performance difference is way too slight to notice on the Nexus 5, it's only a bit noticeable on low-end/old devices. Might as well be going for deodexed.
