    If you needed a reason to run a custom rom on your Nexus 5 this is it! Scimitar is a no nonsense rom that is built from Source and includes a few customizations, but the main attraction here is that it includes LINARO optimizations. If you have forgotten what Linaro is, it's code that is added to an Android build that significantly improves performance. It was responsible for improving the speed of Cyanogen Mod 9 by over 100%! In a demonstration CM9 with Linaro booted up several seconds faster than CM9 without it and performed significantly better in all benchmarks. If nothing else Scimitar is interesting because it includes Linaro. You can also expect a clean and stable build with some unique customizations. Something else that is impressive about this rom is the fact that it was built by a 16 year old! Head to the link below for the download.

    Like that Snapdragon needs to be any faster, it already almost flies out of your hand!
