Default [Q] What ROM now?

Hey there.. got my nexus 7 2013 16GB yesterday. Not terrified from the huge amount of roms since i have my samsung galaxy s2. but what Rom is the best? Im not looking for something "super awesome mega many apps" just for a simple clean android kitkat rom that has some great tweaks.

Is Cyanogenmod a common Mod/Rom to go with that? Its quite awesome with my SGS2!

Do I have to care about anything much? like "if you do this while doing the root your device is instant bricked" or something?

Just whatever you want to try, scroll through the list in the Nexus 7 development thread. CM is a pretty popular ROM for most devices. It's up to you what exactly you want to customize.

I just installed the xposed framework with GravityBox module. It allows some customization, without needed to flash a custom ROM.

You don't need to worry about bricking you device too much, because there's always the factory images on Google's server.
