Lately I have been experiencing a couple of issues that seem have no solution, or I'm the only one experiencing them.
Now, I'd like to know what is most people running on their Nexus, regardless of model.
I'm even thinking about rooted stock with xposed. I don't see many advantages on roms, and cyanogenmod and it's profiles are useless for me on this device.
So, what's your advice?
Rooted stock with xposed (and GravityBox)
is (IMHO) a pretty good option. You get all the stability of factory stock AND the additional functionality of most Custom ROMs... Extended Power Down Menu, Configurable Nav. Bar, Configurable Notification Bar, Configurable Quick Settings 'Tiles', Configurable PIE settings.
And that's just with GravityBox!!
And it's (relatively)
easy to revert back to pure factory stock in the event of an imminent OTA update.
Further, xposed framework modues like GravityBox are APKs, and are installed in much the same way you would sideload any app. Which means they can be easily backed up by Titanium. So in the hugely unlikely event of a seriously buggy release of GravityBox (for example)
, you can just 'roll back'
, via Titanium, to the previous release.
Xposed and perhaps a custom kernel, like Franco, work well together, and provide a good middle ground between pure factory stock and some of the more adventurous (but arguably less reliable)
Anyway... just my thoughts...
Good luck in whatever you choose.
