So i have the official 5.1 android and for 2 years i haven't changed from the official builds so i'm not familiar with custom Roms on nexus 7. Because the 5.1 is soooooo slow and the battery is very poor i want to ask you guys what custom rom should i install on my device and also what can i do about my battery. I don't want the newest OS, i want stability and performance (not for gaming, just usual stuff), and with a good battery life that would be great.
P.S: if you know a good ROM please send me a link .

My choice is Pure Nexus plus Parrot mod and fstrim. It has made my Nexus 7 into my daily driver again.

Pure Nexus had trouble viewing internal storage through some apps, so I ditched it.

CyanogenMod 11 + Nexus Security Fixes [2016-08-05] with Parrotmod is great, definitely bought my device back to life. It's KitKat but marginally faster than Marshmallow in Pure Nexus.

Yeah ParrotMod changed everything for this aging device and brought it back to life.

before jumping on custom rom, if you havent done that yet OP, i would recommend to try one more thing, that worked for me.
i got LP tablet, and wanted improve speed and all that,so I rooted, installed TWRP, so I could install Franco kernel and Parrot mod.
i followed most of recommendations from Nexus7tuningGuide, that you can find on Xda, and now it works fantastic!!!!
comparing to recommended cm11 (that i use on different tablet) it beats hands down! (tests run on Antutu benchmark)
