The Stock Rom is a light and zipaligned, and therefore speedy, custom ROM. It comes pre-rooted, with SuperSU and Busybox out-of-the-box. This rom is notably absent of all of the bloat you find in the standard AOSP. It is based on the official firmware XT1650-03_GRIFFIN_RET-US-MPL-24.246-20, however, which adds to its stability. You will find that to be the case with several of these ROMs.
This rom also offers a F2FS, Auto zipalign after reboot, and finer control over the ROM. Other than that, the ROM is fast and responsive and works really well on the hardware. The ROM is said to be battery friendly but I have not tested that myself so cannot confirm that.
It’s an extremely reliable ROM and is well praised by the users on the XDA-Development forum. This is a clear repacked stock and a repackaged kernel so you get root access on the latest Marshmallow firmware.
I am not responsible if your phone will be damaged, broken, boot looping.
YOU are choosing to make these modifications and accept the fact that something might go wrong.
