Default [Q] Minimal ROM Tweaks From Stock Advice

So I just rooted my MJ5 SMN900A with Kingo so that I can switch ATT to Rogers.

I'm looking into some of the ROMS and Safestrap but I'm debating if its worth it.
I'm a fan of stock rom but I admittedly never ventured into custom ROMs with my ATT Note 2. I was never sure if I missed out on cool stuff because I always felt the risk was unnecessary.

I have my Note 3 where I want it to be app/configuration wise right now coming from stock. I don't want to lose my apps/configs if I try a custom ROM like DynamicROM. Is there anyway to do this? I notice that they all say "do a factory reset". That will wipe my apps and I really dont want that.

Or am I better off just using Titanium Backup to freeze the ATT bloatware and stick to my stock ROM? Does anyone have any additional stock ROM tips and maybe specific bloatware I should freeze on my Note 3?

There's a debloater script that removes almost all of the bloatware stuff, could flash that. I personally edited the script on mine to not delete the stuff I use, figured it'd be easier than doing like the OP said and manually downloading them later. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2587899 with default settings on it the only AT&T stuff that'll be left are Locker and My Account, not sure if those need to be there for some reason of if OP just uses them or something. They're definitely freezable without problems as far as I can tell though. After that you could replace the boot animation with the stock international one and the only visible traces of AT&T would be on the battery plate. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2502550
