[Mods] Nexus 4 Root and Flash but what?

Looking for people's feedback between CyanogenMOD, JBSourcery, AOKP, and Miui (if it's still around)

I've used CM and CNA pretty extensively, and I've tried Miui a couple of times. I haven't tried ,JBSourcery removed as pre below or AOKP.

Just throwing this out, all comments welcome.

JBSourcery is not built for the Nexus 4. I have it on my GNex (Samsung Galaxy Nexus). Do more research, or you will have a brick!

Not to worry, I probably would've figured that out when it came time to download, I'll cross it off the list.

Thanks

CM, AOKP, Miui, AOSPA...there are a ton of options. A lot of them are based on CM as well, so it makes it even more convoluted.

Your best bet is try each and see which you like best.

Since you'd be starting fresh, it would take much to go back to the one you like. Or if you're really lazy, install one, make a back up, install the next, rinse and repeat....then just load the back up of the one you like and delete the other back ups.

I have an S3 and I'm partial to AOKP. Mainly because the developer for the ROM I use is incredible. If you're not a regular over at XDA, I strongly recommend you look around there. See what others are saying

As others have already stated, head over to xda-developers, try a few and see. It really depends on what you're looking for. I use rasbeanjelly and lean kernel on my gnex, but I prefer a fast, minimalist setup. It sounds like you desire more customization than it offers, but there is a version of rasbeanjelly for the n4 as well.

I'm pretty familiar with XDA, I was trying to see what you guys preferred, I'll check out rasbeanjelly, though as I haven't heard about it before now.

It's aosp based, no theming, just what's necessary with a few tweaks.

PA or AOKP with the krait optimizations would be my choice.
