Default [Q] Custom Rom That Keeps S Pen Functionality?

I'm getting a Galaxy Note 8 (N5110) pretty soon, and I understand the stock TouchWiz kind of sucks, so I want to go with a custom ROM when I root.

My biggest concern is maintaining all of the S Pen functionality, because on top of using this as a general media tablet, I also plan to use it as a digitizer on my PC, making use of the pressure sensitivity and all as well. Granted, I could do with losing SOME of the features, but I'd like to keep or improve upon the majority of them.

Seeing as I'm new to this website, the way the forums are laid out is still taking some getting used to. I was wondering if anyone knows of any ROMs that would fit what I'm looking for? It doesn't have to be exact, I understand that's expecting too much. Also, I don't care if it's on 4.2.2 or on 4.4, I'm going to listen to your suggestions.

Thank you in advance for any help.
Rob

EDIT: After looking around more, I realize I probably sound like an idiot. I don't intend to, naturally, and I'm more than willing to learn. I just don't know how to phrase things properly for this yet. Apologies if it creates any confusion as to what the crap I'm talking about lol.

Threw you a thanks to say "welcome to XDA". As for your question, I don't think you can go wrong with this rom:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2367151

It has been time tested and the rom creator incorporates his own kernel as well so no surprises. Everything works and think you will like the added functionality such as easy battery icon customization, floating multiwindows, and many other enhancements. I have been running this since day one with my Note and no issues at all.
CURRENT DEVICES
Samsung Galaxy S4
Samsung Galaxy Note 8
HTC Flyer
Asus Eee Pad Transformer

Thanks for the reply, the thanks, and the welcome! I look forward to getting more into the XDA community, especially after I get my tablet and can really start the fun!

That ROM looks pretty good, I like the features. I assume these ROMs are primarily a personal preference type thing, eh? Not so much a "best" one out there, only ROMs that are best for you? Providing it doesn't do any harm to the tablet, I'll probably try a bunch of ROMs, see what I like, and since this one was suggested, I'll make it first on the list

Spen works with any CM ROM I've tried so far.. That is just the pen and pressure sensitivity and nothing else.. So I'm on slimkat and the pen works.. Just no exfat support yet
