Default [Q] Control apps permissions on stock ROM

Hi,
I have Nexus 4 with stock ROM. I am completely satisfied with that ROM in matter of stability, speed, battery life etc.
Only thing I am missing is to control apps permissions - I was able to control at least something on 4.3 with App Ops, but in 4.4 it is gone (or I cannot find it )
So I am looking for a solution - I do not want to flash custom ROM, but I understand root may be required. Is there some solution I can use in combination rooted Nex 4 with stock ROM?

Thanks guys

with root, you can use the app trickster mod (grab it from google play) to access app ops! ... also other apps, like
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...cs.applauncher can modifie the application's permissions
Say thanks

Nexus 4 - Rom: Unicorn Saber
Nexus 4 - Kernel: AK.NEO.0x033.JS

Hi, thanks for reply and suggestion,
Permission Manager is only for 4.3 android (not my case)
for trickster mod I see only Kernel app which can modify many settings but cannot see app permissions control
