Default [Q] Best ROM for Privacy on Nexus 7

Hello,

I like my Nexus 7 but do not want any google-access. I'm looking for suggestions for a ROM that basically lets me use the Nexus as an offline device for the most part. I do, from time to time, want to be able to access some services via VPN. I've used Cyanogenmod but it seems it still requires quite a bit of tweaking to turn things off and updates seem to enable things - especially Google services. I really want Google out of my life. Are there any ROMs that start with the assumption that you want complete privacy? Thanks.

Disabling Google services or framework will cause many other issues.

Not sure you even can.

Not being sarcastic.... But to get Google out of your life, you might need to leave android completely. Which won't happen on a nexus.

And to answer your question at the end, no.

However, airplane mode will keep you completely offline. Simple. Without messing with anything.
