Default Best rom to give phone to my mother

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
Current devices: Nexus 4 and 7
Non Android toys: Apple iPod Touch 64GB (never leaves my car) ASUS VX7 laptop and 2002 AUDM DC5 Integra Type R (My baby)

Previous devices: Too many to mention. A few HTCs, some Samsungs and a couple of ASUS tablets. Favourite was my Galaxy S3

Please consider a donation to the developers that make all of this possible. It's a small price to pay for the improvements they make to the expensive devices you use every day.

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.
