I just got my new 2013 Nexus with the latest KK4.4.4 pre installed.
I normally always flash a custom ROM right away when I get a new device. I've unlocked and rooted right away but is there any real advantage of now flashing something like Cyanogen stable or nightly? I'd appreciate any advice or knowledge of any advances from here.
Thanks

Don't flash Cyanogen because it's not good. But you need to flash something because if stock had any less options, they would number in the negatives.

Paranoid Android is a really good and stable ROM. It doesn't have as much features as Cyanogen, but it has definitely more than Stock. I'm also using ElementalX kernel and it's excellent too. Would surley recommend both...

Right now I'm running CleanRom 4.4.4 + Xposed w/gravity box & Cool Tool (which is an app with xposed functionality not a stand alone module).

So far it's all great and running smooth. Before I used to just run stock rooted with Xposed (and CWM recovery). The benefit of Xposed is that you don't need to flash roms to get the tweaks you want, I'd highly recommend it.
