Been running JB now for a couple days. Neo's mean horsey face aokp jb rom. Thing is blazing fast with excellent battery life. Features galore! Blue tooth calling doesn't work but I don't use it anyways. Couple other little bugs that will be addressed on next update. Otherwise very stable as a daily driver.
Take a gander at HTC's quarterly earnings reports and then realize they don't have the resources to update phones more than a year old. Bad business decision, perhaps, but I think it's mostly just reality.

The quality would be even better, too, if they made things easier and more accessible for developers.
Well their quarterly reports actually yielded a gain. The loss they had from November was around 61% now its like 20% meaning they lost less money. In other words, they are gaining the momentum back and making some money but they are still in the hole; just not as deep.
With that being said, if that is the reason why they cant do updates or anything...all i can say is......damn. And I was liking the Rezound but its just a replacement phone. I will wait till for the new devices this year.. Hopefully HTC and Moto do Nexus models this year. That would be nice. Curious on this Google X from Google/Moto.
JB 4.2.1 ROM out. Pure cm10.1 kang. Blue tooth calling works. Camcorder works in landscape. Video streaming good but not perfect. Awesome ROM
I have excellent experiences with aosp, cm9, aokp, and liquid on my old Motorola DROID x.
With the rezound I have been very disappointed with almost everything xda had to offer. I won't go into details, just a complete lack of qa, where even the developer didn't test it.
However, jelly beans on the rezound is really good.
[ROM][Unofficial] CM10.1 for HTC Rezound [2-9-13] - xda-developers
Only two problems.
First, the automatic restore of apps and settings by Google would totally and permanently break the play store. So I reflashed and set everything up manually including app installation.
Second I can not get my custom boot animation to work with the sound file.
Neither of these are really important.
I installed it yesterday.
Cm10.1 android 4.2 works decently with only about two crashes per day. Not bad, but if you want htc quality stay with stock.
Unofficial CM10.1 (JB-4.2.2) rom released.
Google now widget is sick.
Lock screen widget sick.
Well, it has been several weeks and I have decided that I like CM10.1 Jelly beans.

Crashes happen less than once a week, and I really like many of the customized features cyanogenmod has.

So tempted... Just hate having to re do all my apps and settings :p that's the only thing stopping me right now...
