Looking for a good starter ROM for your newly-rooted-and-wed Nexus 5?
Well, check out DroidKang ROM for your Nexus 5.
Based on CM11 ROM, DroidKang ROM gives you stability of CyanogenMod ROM plus many customization including custom navigation bar, custom battery icons, custom animations, and more.
Also you will find AOSP stock browser on-board which is nice for those of you who prefer it over Chrome and Dolphin browsers.
My favorite feature is probably the ability to add shortcuts on many levels including the navigation bar, rings, and even Power button menus. You can add so many custom shortcuts it makes the phone more functional since it does not have hardware buttons.
Overall, DroidKang ROM is great for those of you who like CM11 but looking for some more user-controlled customizations. So, give it a try this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

Please make sure you backup ROM before installing a custom ROM!!!
To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install Gapps, and reboot. (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop, reboot into recovery, go to Advanced Wipe for TWRP or Mounts & Storage for CWM, format/wipe /system, then re-install ROM.)
Download Flash Player APK (if you want flash player use with Dolphin browser)
DownloadAndroid 4.3 PhotoSphere (if you want photosphere, but may force close so make a backup of your Gallery app using Titanium Backup app before installing! )
