    Maybe we can start a support group and hand out wooden nickles to those who haven't flashed in a while?! :p

    So far I'm digging Revolution a lot. Nice and snappy. Battery seems great too.

    Yeah that Dev is an animal! He was pumping out the roms for the bionic faster than I could flash them lol.

    I'm hoping to wait until the first update is pushed to our phones, see how that works, and THEN root and flash roms. So far I've been doing well and not really getting that "itch" to start flashing roms, but everytime I see a thread about a new ROM for the Nexus, I twitch a little bit :p

    Why wait? When has any Verizon update ever come close to making your phone better than the latest ROM? That is especially true for this phone, which has ridiculous dev support. Theory is literally putting out 2 updates a day. Verizon doesn't put 2 updates out in a year.

    Well I thought that the updates for this specific phone came straight from google? Wasn't that one of the big pros for this phone because it was a google flagship phone? I figured if that's the case, the updates to this phone will be much more often than waiting 3 months for Verizon to send out the updates. Yeah I know that roms update phones much much more often...

    But that being said, I'm mainly just trying to enjoy stock for a while longer because I know once I root and flash, it'll be a never ending cycle. I'm enjoying stock the way it is now and I'd rather not have to do backups every other day for the time being and just enjoy the phone as is.
