Updated 5/22/15
This page is a work in progress. I will be adding thread links to all of the items listed.
I have contacted most of the developers whose files are hosted. If you have any objection to your work being mirrored in my repo, please PM me and I will remove it.
I am exploring other hosting options as well and this will likely be completed when I have some time.

This thread is dedicated to my Nexus4 file repository on bit.ly/makostuff.
Just about everything listed here can be found in the repository.

My goal is to have all useful items for the Nexus4 available in one place.
Please feel free to post suggestions for tools that you feel may be useful for users.

Please don't post (Especially Don't PM ME) asking about the specific items, but go to that specific thread and post your questions there.

I will post notifications for new profiles created here as well as the kernel thread.
For instructions on properly importing profiles, see this post...
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=58585535

The only things I won't be hosting are ROMs and GApps as they are large files and constantly being updated.

Code:
For a clean and optimal build, follow the steps below and read the optimal battery life document on bit.ly/makostuff thoroughly and do not skip certain steps because you feel like it. 

Do a factory reset/wipe
Make sure you have latest TWRP recovery
Flash latest Dirty Unicorns or Euphoria ROM
Flash GApps (PA or Banks)
Flash kernel
Flash latest UKM script
Flash latest SuperSU (recommend pro)
Flash stock 1.06 radio (or LTE enabler zip if you have a Band4 LTE carrier in USA)

If you don't already have latest TWRP, install ROM installer from play store, download latest TWRP. Open ROM Installer, select your current recovery tool, select "Flash Image" and navigate to the TWRP file.

-Once you flashed everything listed above...

Once booted, install flash player, Synapse, Greenify (recommend pro version), CleanMaster (disable all options inside CleanMaster for realtime monitoring and in notifications) and install any other apps you need.

In as security>Device administrators, select all options.
Also in Accessibility, select all options.

If you need an antivirus, use Bitdefender free as it doesn't use battery, but only scans new apps.
Once all apps are installed, configure CleanMaster Phone Booster to disable unnecessary apps from running at startup. For more advanced users, use  "Manage Android Autostart" app from Play store.
Go through settings>Apps and disable notifications on apps you don't want notifications from.

Configure Greenify and Greenify all user apps except vital apps that need to run (SMS app, SuperSU, Synapse, etc.)

NOW, read the optimal battery life document on bit.ly/makostuff thoroughly.
With lollipop, you can ignore anything regarding dalvik patching and Adreno drivers in the document.

Once completed, try importing one of the profiles in Synapse profiles.
You can currently find the following items in the bit.ly/makostuff repository.

And maybe the n6.... It would be good to have a one stop shopping (and a place to keep up with everything nexus) in one place

Ahhhh, I see what you did there.

Some recognized developer guy told me how to get rid of that spam.
Hmm, I forgot his name [emoji14] Do you know his name?
