Sorry guys, I never got around to uploading that. It was just AOSP compiled by me with motley's kernel compiled by me. Nothing else special about it.

I'm guessing you're new to rooting on a Nexus? Lots of options out there. RootzWiki or XDA are where you want to go for links, but I'll help you out here. My rom of choice is Nexus Evolution. I feel like it has the best balance of features and stability, but here's a few feature heavy ones.

AOKP
Team Baked (perfect if you prefer the dark theme)
Xenon (my previously daily driver)
Nexus Evolution (my current daily driver)

I always liked Xenon because it usually had more features than most roms, but I would get the occasional reboot so in my search from something more stable, I found Evolution which has the same features (if not more), but definitely smoother and more no reboots after a couple weeks of smooth sailing.

Just try a few Kernel/ROM combinations and see what you like best, good choice out there. Fwiw I'm running Dirty AOKP v5.0 with Franco kernel r47 - stable, smooth, balance of performance/battery plus you get Swagger (good laugh at posts asking what that does)
