Hi all,

I've been running Omni, but I just upgraded to a nexus 5. What would be an ideal rom that doesn't need to be updated regularly and I can install franco's kernel on before giving it to her?

Thank you

Thank you

I think that the best rom to give to her is stock kit-kat. The reason is that it doesn't need to be updated much and if it does it will do it automatically. Also if she has a problem she can take it to a phone shop or ask google without the rom being a problem.

Thats just my opinion though.

Stock. Not rooted. Unless you live with her and are willing to deal with any issues she may have. Custom ROM's, while great, aren't always complete and are meant for those that understand that there are some "bugs". The stock ROM at least will be easy to update.

My other half has a nexus 4 as well. She is a woman so you get the idea.
She is super happy with the stock rooted jellybean. It is rooted just because I didn't want her to click on ads and buy shoes from dodgy sellers. Adaway was the solution for me.
