    So basically, the reason I am not going to a JB ROM is because none of them will let you record video. That also means you cannot Skype or use GTalk video.

    Also, no bluetooth calling, though that is a lesser concern for me.

    No Video is a critical bug. I can't go to JB until that is fixed, if ever.

    Just tried out video recording, recorded fine but playback was extremely choppy or just didn't work at all. Hopefully these issues do get fixed in there near future. From what I've read today it sounds like there will be some new releases this week. I'll keep you posted if they fix the deal breakers like video, blue tooth etc. Fortunately for me all the things that are broke are things that I don't use.

    I just set up a Galaxy nexus for a friend of mine...man, that phone is sweeet with JB. Vanilla Android is SUCH a breath of fresh air after having been condemned to a Sense prison for a year or more now.

    I was tempted to swap to it until I remembered it has no SD slot, and a much ****tier camera than the rezound. But the display is actually quite nice, and it is much smoother than I remember. Too bad it has those critical flaws. it is an awesome phone, easily as smooth as the galaxy S3.

    If they can fix the video issue I will install it. But the Camera is one of the main reasons I still have this phone...if I can't fully use it, I might as well ditch this and go to a Nexus.

    I would like to see a fully stable JB, especially if the battery is that much more efficient. Right now I'm on Nils Business 4.0 I think... And it works just about as well as the stock rom... As far as I can tell.

    Oh yeah one of the main reasons I rooted was for Google Now. It's satisfied my needs for searching for now :) would love to get the full featured version on jb tho.
