    So, I got over my fear of rooting and took the chance and rooted my device and flashed the latest Nameless ROM last night. The process was actually quite easy, but the ROM wasn't all that stable, unfortunately. Granted, my device is ancient (lol) at this point in terms of updates, so it's hardly optimized for Lollipop, but I honestly wasn't impressed by the feel of it as I thought I'd be.

    Maybe it's just that I'm used to TouchWiz and knowing where everything is at this point, but I guess it's made me appreciate skins more. Whatever the case may be, I think my desire for a Nexus 6 device has been tempered through this experience.

    I restored the saved backup I had through ClockworkMod, and I'm still rooted. While I'm still blah towards TouchWiz, I now feel like my next device will have a lighter skin; perhaps on an HTC M9, LG G4 or Moto X Gen 3. Sigh, either way, it's made me rethink things.

    No, I didn't, I'm aware of where I posted. I posted here because I frequent these threads, and was contemplating getting the Nexus 6 and reporting my thoughts, but thanks anyway.

    Try a good rom on a good phone and you might change your tune.

    I have a Nexus 6. Unlocked the bootloader, rooted and running CM12 nightlies.
    CM makes it very easy to get and install the newest version.
    Also did the LED hack which is really cool to have now.

    Congratulations on rooting!!! Like I said it's not that hard and it opens up quite a few things. Don't give up on lollipop yet. More themes and skins are becoming available. I'm using the Liquid Smooth Rom.. See if they have a version for your device.

    Thank you! Actually, yes there is a Liquid Smooth ROM for my device. I was going to flash it, but I ended up flashing Temasek's 5.0.2 ROM (stable build) instead. It's very smooth; no lag or stutter. I'm quite impressed with it. I do like the fact that the settings in Liquid Smooth are dark and not white, though.

    . . . That's the second rom? You're on the move now.. Lol! If you are still reconsidering the Nexus, I would recommend the G2(rooted running Lollipop ..My previous phone). It's smaller that the 6,bigger than the 5..excellent internals, camera, battery, display and Rom support. I think you would be happy with that if you decide against the nexus

    At this point I'm open to anything. I have heard the about the battery life on the G2 being really good, and that's important, along with good stand by time for me. As I've said before, the one thing that scares me about the Nexus is the lack of third-party repair options, in case of a drop, since most local stores more readily support Apple and Samsung repair.

    I agree with you about repair support. I've been paying for insurance since 99 and maybe used it twice. I might drop the insurance , but this is the one that I need it for. Get the 6...Put Liquid Smooth on it (i just love what this rom offers) and live happily ever after.. Lol

    Lol, thanks for the suggestion. We'll see how the N6 behaves by the time I get it in the spring. If it's being a good boy, I'll get it. That screen and those front-firing speakers were selling points to me.

    I wouldn't bet on that. I'm not a fan of TouchWiz, I'm just used to it. It's time to try something new.

    The updater is not working yet. Go back to the rom page and update from there. I'm on the 2/4 build now.
