Seriously, if you want to flash alternate OS images to test (Ubuntu for Devices, Firefox OS, Sailfish OS, Open webOS), if you want multiROM support, if you want Xposed Framework and tons of Modules, if you want custom kernel choices, if you want custom ROMs coming out of your wazoo, if you want a phone you won't brick...
If you want any / all of the above - get a Nexus 4. Hands down the number one ports target and most versatile device out there right now. Go to Swappa, get an N4 and get your flash on.
If you want to wander around the forums hunting in vain, pulling your hair out and whining, "why can't I install x, y or z???" then get any other device except a Nexus.
