The main idea behind SuperNexus is to provide stock Android experience, just like how Google intended it to be. SuperNexus is entirely built from Google's AOSP source. A lot of improvements and optimisations have been done to the Google's Source Code to have the best possible Vanilla Android Experience. SuperNexus is very light too as there are no 3rd party apps (ZERO Bloatware).

Big thanks to the CyanogenMod Team and the OmniROM Team, without them this ROM was not possible. Huge shoutout to DigitalOcean for providing us access to their excellent VPS services, which has cut down our compile time from 2 hours to just 30 minutes.
