Rooted [to get rid from some system app that i don't needed] +stock...I don't think we need a custom rom on this phone.

Until this disappearing IMEI mess gets sorted I'm staying stock. As I understand it, the IMEI disappears when users flash new ROMs so I should hopefully be fine so long as I don't flash any custom ROMs. I'll one day try to root my Note II and pray that my theory is correct. I wanna apply some tweaks and get rid of some bloat and crapware.

I'm bone stock. I've always rooted and put a custom ROM on my android phones but for the first time I don't feel I need to. This thing is flawless.

Well I am using nova launcher. Actually I go back and forth between nova and next launcher. But nova is what I'm usually using.

Stock means you can use all sharecast.
Rooted plus custom ROM means updated latest OS like 4.2.1 and so on
