Install Android 4.4.2 Cataclysm ROM On Nexus 5 [Guide]

Cataclysm ROM is based on Android 4.4.2 and AOSP sources, Some features form the Stock ROM on Nexus 5 is also added to the ROM. This ROM is the best combination, when it comes to battery life and performance and thanks to tweaks and system optimizations this ROM can prove itself to be the best one yet. The only let-down in this ROM is that there is no theme choose like in CM 11, but you can install different launches if you like the looks and themes. This is not an official release from LG/Google, but a Custom ROM, you need to install a Custom Recovery on your device to install it and also your device must be rooted. Haven’t rooted yet. Follow:

But why would anyone goes for a Custom ROM instead of staying on the Stock On, allow me to explain. “Stock and Official ROMs are good, but they are created with keeping in mind the demands of all,some wants performance and some wants speed, some wants looks, some wants features. Putting them all in one ROM can cause Lag, Performance issuesand bugs. But Custom ROM in basically designed for either Looks or Performance and Custom ROM gives speed and great performance with Tweaks and System Tools.”
