Hey guys, thanks for the input earlier this year. heres what I did:
Used option #3. Lovin it. Im liking how we can get apps from playstore now. I havent confirmed any video issues as of yet since my woman is immediately playing temple run. (she seen my niece play it, and my hunt for it led to my return to root)
Im very happy. Feels like a real device now lol.
THANKS again to all who help, lead, develope, and assist on this site and so many others.
