We are going for quality here, not quantity ...

(And there are quite different in many things it matters, its not 1:1 to n5...)

The nexus may be similar to the g2 in the hardware departmant but they are completely different when it comes to the software department, we may not have hundreds of thousands of roms but we have quality and in my experience with other devices(mainly samsung which tend to have lots of roms) I don't see myself constantly changing roms/kernels anymore and that is good because there are less chances of bricking my device because of crack flashing

well that was the only rom that was more pure nexus, your best bet would be to look through the g2 aosp and look for the one that resembles nexus the most or what you would like in the rom, best of luck
