    I'm unlocked and rooted but I have decided not to flash a rom. Any future problems with this? I'm a newbie. I love my gnex the way it is, just wanted better battery life. I hated using the extended battery, I like her slim and sexy.

    Simply rooting won't give you better battery life. But no that won't cause any problems. Only thing is you might lose root if you accept an OTA.

    Well the good thing is you can now use apps that require root, but no you won't get better battery life even if you did download a cpu controller app because you're on the stock ROM. May I suggest a ROM for you if you want to pretty much remain stock, try Android Revolution HD. It's based off the stock ROM, but there is a significant improvement in battery life. I've been running it since December and I love it.
