Stock & stock. Nothing beats its smoothness. Xposed is all I need.

Word! Haven't had my nexus for very long but this is my favorite setup so far; stock ROM and kernel with xposed. I am content with stock battery life at the moment

Hello all, long time lurker, but first post!

I'm running CM11 M4 with neobuddy89's Chaos kernel (v10.2 stable), and it's awesome. There are a few tweaks from GravityBox, mostly re the statusbar and lockscreen, that I'd love to see incorporated in CM though.

Welcome to XDA. Enjoy everyone complaining about bugs lol. :D

Wow, 7 h SOT? may I ask how old you nexus 5 is? With a similar set up I can't ever seem to break 4-5 h.

Stock and xposed. Days of custom roms being better went with ICS. Kernels are still dodgy. Using the best # Elemental # adds so much to battery life and general smoothness

How is it bad? I don't see any negative effects on my nexus.

Do you guys prefer franco over chaos? and if so can you use gamma tweaks on franco?

Elementalx by flar2. Do the reading of the good things said.
Anything over Franco. I try it from time to time but there is always something wrong, imo

Was on slim for a long time. Great rom. The best in my opinion... Had the urge to flash stock images.. So far I'm really liking it again. Everything seems to work better.. For some reason auto awesome, etc didn't work with custom Roms. The keyboard seems to swipe better on stock.. Just the minor things!! Lol

    Using my own private custom stock ROM with modifications + r48 Franco.kernel

    Assuming I get permission from people to use their work that I've used privately for my own use, the ROM may see itself on XDA.
