    The Nexus 7 Tablet has not even seen retail stores and yet the Jelly Bean 4.1 OS factory image is already available for download. Now that the image is available the list of ROMS/Mods that will start pouring in will be quite extensive. Even better news is that users will no longer have to worry about "bricking" their devices, so the flashaholics and developers can have a field day without fear or worry. If you'd like to download the image today just click this link and let the fun begin. So who's excited?

    I was wondering what has changed with this build to remove "bricking" from our fears? (I am not a dev, just curious about what is different about 4.1 and previous versions)

    Since this is a new device, there haven't been any previous versions of Android released for it. The fact that there is a factory image for the Nexus 7 just means that if you were to brick your tablet, you can always restore it to its original state via flashing the stock firmware.
