Well I have only jumped from one HTC to some other HTC. And I was looking at the ROMs here and I was completely lost and I really don't want to try ALL roms again, too much time consuming. So definitely gonna try the ROMs mentioned here. Stock is a tad bit laggy.
any nexus is easy to root, the basics..
1. "fastboot oem unlock" via fastboot
2. fastboot flash a custom recovery
3. flash the su binaries in your recovery
4. reboot and profit
