    Not for long.

    Different carriers move forward at different timelines. Some are simply slow and behind the times. ICS (Andoird v4.0) is actually ahead of many other versions from the past, and often seen as a stepping stone to Jelly Bean (Android v4.1).

  3. Well it is quiet interesting to hear about the android jelly bean. It is the latest version with its unique applications and the fastest performance. I have the android 4.0 ICS version and i want to upgrade to the jelly bean version as it includes the high processing speed.

    "Crashed" and "messed up" maybe some but "bricked?" Haven't seen that on XDA. Rarely ever is there a "brick" that can't be "unbricked" in minutes with the right tools (and the right forum). If your forum-folk has had soooo many issues it leads me to believe they aren't too, ummmm, knowledgeable. ;) I haven't had a crashed device since my first Android back in the beginning. Maybe because I don't run odd-ball apps. I don't even remember the last FC I have gotten. Again, maybe due to the apps I use. All pretty safe. I root them within minutes of taking them out of the package.

    What ROM are you referring to? GPS is very important to me. Been holding off on JB on my Gnex. Well, actually I did play with it for a few minutes then re-flashed back to ICS.

    Ah, the wife is on AOKP's JB I believe. Hold on, I'll look for it.

    edit: meaning my wife has TMobile and I got her an unlocked GNex.

    I'm just annoyed that my wife's Xoom has already downloaded it, and my Transformer Prime has not, (but they say it will get it).

    On "standby" here as well for my Transformer awaiting Jelly Bean.

    The new performance enhancements and features will be welcome.

    I don't dispute what you're saying...but I can tell you that many, many folks who attempted or executed rooting had a wide range of problems, and some bricking as well. To your point, it's not for either the faint-hearted nor uninformed. XDA loyalists tend to be some advanced users, so they likely have far better results.

    My Android tablet has never crashed either.

    As for Jelly Bean...based on the accelerated release of new hardware...I suspect it will be a dominant Android version within months of its release on each device that can run it.

    Well, my patience finally paid off, my Transformer Prime downloaded Jelly Bean this morning.

    Very cool.

    I suspect you'll have to go through the customary "tweaking process of a few updates"...but at least you're there.
