    there doesnt seem to be a lot here on bugless beast, many mentions few how to's, is "grouper" the one i want? is it as simple as booting into recovery and selecting it?...it would be nice to have everything here, rather than going to developers sites, i mean, isnt that why this is all things root? I would love to get a pros and cons from people that are using this rom

    Grouper does indeed refer to the Nexus 7, so if you're looking for the Nexus 7 version if BB, Grouper is what you're looking for.

    Yes, grouper is the nexus 7s codename given to it by Google


    Are you asking for installation instructions?

    Not quite, your going to want to backup your apps using titanium backup, make a nandroid in case you want to go back to your current setup, then wipe dalvik cache, cache, factory reset, and flash the ROM.

    Backing your SD card up to your computer isn't a bad idea either

    Go to your computer and google search for Wugfresh toolkit. Install program. (Version 1.5.4 seems to work best with the Nex7, vice the latest 1.5.5 version.

    Enjoy the simplicity of the toolkit.

    That's only useful when you're trying to unlock and root, not install new roms

    Wrong. Take a look again.

    Although it is just as easy manually flashing via CWMR.
