For those of you with a rooted Nexus 4, you can easily upgrade to the latest Android 4.4.3 stock ROM with root by using Android 4.4.3 Stock ROM you can flash with CWM or TWRP recovery.
This is 100% stock firmware with root and busybox added. Also make sure you flash the latest version of SuperSU aftering flashing ROM to get full root.
What’s new with Android 4.4.3? There’s not much visual changes with Android 4.4.3 other than a slightly-changed dialer but many of its internals have been improved vastly. You can expect much better battery life, smoother performance, and having a better overall software on your Nexus 4.
Some notable features with Android 4.4.3 include improved performance when low on RAM, better FLAC support for music players, and better battery life along with slew of improvements in many categories. Personally, I noticed much better battery life along with better WiFi connections (specifically, I was able to pick up better signals and longer connections even when further away from my router).
For this week, definitely try out the latest Android 4.4.3 stock ROM and do let me know if you notice anything better than Android 4.4.2!
To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install SuperSU, and reboot. (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop, reboot into recovery, go to Advanced Wipe for TWRP or Mounts & Storage for CWM, format/wipe /system, then re-install ROM.)
Make sure you update to the latest Google Camera on Play Store after installing ROM!
