Which ROM for me?
Although I'm very tech savvy, I've never really been into customizing and tweaking things, although I'm capable of figuring things out. At this point I'm becoming disgusted with Motor's lack of interest in the X, and building a stable, fluid OS, so I guess its time to start checking out ROMs. I've seen some names like Gummy, ApeX and FlyX thrown around, and there may be other contenders as well, so help steer me to what would be a good fit for me.
Want: Stable experience - no crashing. Fluid/fast/polished. Bloatware removal.
Don't want: constant workarounds just to have things work normally
Like: facebook integration for things like contact pics and status updates, but not having all my friends in my phonebook
Need: bluetooth audio and phone, camera, etc
I don't want to this just so I can constantly tinker with themes and stuff. I just want a solid replacement experience, closer to what motor should be providing...if that exists.

Dark Slide V4.1 is stable and cool ,comes in blur or blurless depending on your preference is. I used them both on the blur one now ......,but then again I used ApeX and GummyJar too haha , just settled in on DS for awhile I am not commmited for life to one Rom
I have made no changes to DarkSlide's operating system at all from when it was installed except to install a green tinted keyboard,of course my apps all back and the optional 3G HotSpot Hack,,, but just used the wifi tethering part so far.
I am overclocked and use setcpu configured for more battery saving stuff in the profile section . Alls Great

ApeX is my favorite. You should install a ROM, make a nandroid backup of it (after getting your settings the way you like), use the ROM for a few days, then install a different one if your not totally pleased. Make a nandroid backup of that one too. If you don't like what you switch to, use your nandroid backup to go back to the first one. It just takes a few minutes to switch.Semper Fi
I love my LG Nexus 5!

gummy jar is bare bones......basically bone stock google. no features like bluetooth text messages, call id readout, facebook integration.
apex is basically a slimmed down and fast version of moto blur. it has all of the bloat removed and you can add/subtract things with the terminal editor.
