Hi Itay, XDA Developers have a great thread listing the best kernel/ROM combos for the Nexus 4. Check it out here and let us know what you go with and how they perform. Anyone else got a good kernel/ROM combination for the Nexus 4?

Alot of people recommend matrix with pa..
I had issues with both..
With the matrix the animations weren't smooth and we're laggy and weird, and with the pa it would say that the user interface has crashed and the only way I could fix it is to reinstall the rom, but than it would happen again..
Can you maybe help me with that?

Switching kernels are tricky, depends a lot on the phone. Best is trying... and failing...

I usually try to stick with the one recommended by the rom's developer.

The Nexus 4 is especially hard to get stable, apparently (I'm not a specialist), but other than Matrix, I can recommend Franco kernel, Trinity, Mako (Faux123), _motley & Harsh kernel.

Good luck!
