    Looks like the guys over at xda got a working AOSP Jellybean rom released. I have not tried it yet but I know what I'll be doing for the new year. Shout out if anyone has tried it.
    And sorry, I didn't post this in roms or development because there like ghost towns.

    Forgive my ignorance on the issue, but what would I gain with JB?

    I guess once I try jb I could answer a little better, but the main reason for me is to keep up with the times of the android/Google os. Apps like Google now, voice search, plus others that I have seen are optimized for and only available with jb roms.

    4.2 also introduces lock screen widgets. I know beautiful widgets and hd widgets are already updated to support 4.2
    However I don't think the jb roms available for the rezound are based on 4.2 :-(

    I am running ICS and using Nova Launcher and it has lock screen widgets...been using it for months.
    I'd like to try out a JB room for better app support like Google Now & whatnot.

    Can you use hd widgets with nova launchers lock screen, or does it have its own set of widgets?

    Bah, my mistake. I was thinking shortcuts when I read "widgets".
    I've been using Nova for so long, I forgot that shortcuts are available on the lock screen in stock ICS...thought it was part of Nova.

    I would like the real JB on it.
    And yes JB carries quite a difference to ICS. Mostly Project Butter and Google Now.
    I dont understand how this phone will not receive JB. Makes no sense and it has more then enough specs to get it.:icon_cussing:

    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.

    For the life of me I don't know why the OEM's don't embrace the hacker community and make it easy to root and flash. It's a virtually free way to offload support for older devices. Come up with an easy one- or two-click solution that any novice could update their phone when they choose. The quality would be even better, too, if they made things easier and more accessible for developers.
