    Or you could wait for source to drop in a few weeks since source normally drops around the time a Nexus gets an OTA.

    Alright so i did some research on this and other sites and from what i've seen, the most stable and usable ROMs with little bugs and issues, is Vanirbean (JD's rom) and Jelly Belly. In your opinion, which of these two are the best to use? Or are there others that work just as well?

    flash it now. Just make a backup. If you don't like it, flash back and it'll be like it never happened...

    I flashed yesterday without any problems. Of course be smart and make a back up. Also it helps to wipe cache and data 3-4 times. If you back up your apps with Titanium Do Not Restore system data. I flashed Varibean and it works wait any issues at all.

    Isn't it that flash player is built into html5 and we just won't be needing adobe to handle it for us?

    What fun would that be? No sitting on the sidelines with a Nexus. :)

    I ran Vanirbean first. It was good but still far too buggy by the time I left it. I'm now on Jelly Belly and it's rock solid. They're up to version 1.8 with a ton of fixes. Give it a shot, you'll be happy with it.

    What new camera thing?

    Also, speaking from experience, backup your stock ROM and jellybelly ROM to your PC or other device.

    I've had bootloop issues where I had to flash the factory stock img and you never know if it's going to happen to you or not.
