    Can you theme a stock rooted ROM? My experience so far is that the ROMs are generally laggier and not as stable as the stock ROMs. The only thing that is really holding me back from using a stock ROM is theming.

    Thanks

    Yep you can theme the stock ROM just like any other ROM. I do know changing the notification bar is a little trickier, but it's all still possible.

    Awesome. Do you know if there are any premade themes out there for stock images? My favorite so far is the Nextheme. I'd love to find that for the stock image.

    Thats what I am using now and I find it very laggy. I'm using 5.0.6.2 and the stock launcher. Almost everytime I go to the home screen I have to wait for my icons and widgets to populate the screen again.

    Honestly the best ROM I've used so far was UD 9.8.

    Nah, I'm not using an OC'd kernel. I assumed the OCing would make my battery life worse.
