You could say my faith was restored for I would choose the nexus over the iphone given the chance...

I don't want a custom recovery because I would be constantly tempted on a custom rom, I already got the kernel because it uses fastboot

Haha. I can't begin to describe how weird I think you are

I know!, I had to read that several times myself.

My idea was to leave the phone completely stock but here I am with xposed and a custom kernel. I know I'll end up using custom roms but I want to delay it much as possible. Most of the apps I use are cloud based because I used to wipe my phone like twice a week.
