This post was last updated on: July 30, 2012 (9AM PST)

*I have been experiencing some soft reboots with this ROM and WiFi issues, so I made the switch to a different ROM (Bugless Beast, so far been great!), watch the main blog for links to the current ROM I am running*  Feel free to leave any comments for this ROM, if this ROM been working well for you or what not.  In meantime, I will update this post best I can to latest releases from maker of the ROM.

Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean)  source is released from Google.  What does that mean for everybody who owns a nexus device?  This provides the necessary files, binaries, and drivers for developers who make  customized ROMS.  This is good news for the end users, this means more ROMS coming your way for flashing.  I will provide a link below to the ROM am currently running on my Nexus (CDMA) using the latest android 4.1.1 that is built from the source.  Ones again i will be only posting links for CDMA Verizon of Galaxy Nexus.   I will update this post regularly if there is any new update.
