Flashing custom ROMs questions
So I had to return my Moto X due to not having enough storage and am having problems ordering the 32gb version from at&t. Its been a couple weeks now and if it isn't sorted by the end of the week I may ask them to ship me a different phone and thinking about getting this one. My big concern is the software, as I have played with the store model and it seems as bloated as my Note 3, and I really liked the near stock experience of the Moto X.
I'm not sure how flashing ROMs works, so I wanted to ask some questions. Is it difficult? It would be the at&t model. I would be looking for a ROM very similar to the Moto X or Nexus. Also, how feature complete are the ROMs? I've heard of stories where after flashing, a feature won't work or won't be available (such as the IR blaster or knock on), is this still the case? How is stability? I'm someone that likes my phone to be rock solid, I don't have the patience to be constantly rebooting, it bugs me if things don't just work. The stock skin seems to have some lag, similar to my Note 3, would a custom ROM improve performance? Also, how does it affect app performance? Could it make 3rd party apps from the app store act all buggy? I do use a lot of apps from the app store and their stability and performance are very important for me. Would the new ROMs have all the features of kit kat, or do they just look like kit kat?
Sorry for all the questions, I am new to this. I really like the hardware and just trying to figure out if I can make this phone work for me or keep waiting to see if at&t can sort things out and get me a 32gb Moto X.
