    Well, there aren't really a lot of radios out there, yet. As we get more OTA updates, more will be provided. Here are the two currently available:

    There should be no reason to flash radios until a new one is released as part of an OTA update. As for ROMs, there are a lot out there. The best way to keep up to date is just look directly at xda. Here's the Sprint Galaxy Nexus developer forum:

    Sprint Galaxy Nexus Android Development - xda-developers

    Any thread starting with [ROM] (or some variation of that) is, well...a different ROM that you can flash to replace your current one. Developers always provide flashing instructions (even if they are almost always the same). Any thread starting with [MOD] is some subset of changes meant to be flash on top of a ROM. The packages are built the same, but rather than including all of the OS files, it includes just a few changes files to replace existing ones. Themes seem to be more spread out, but you can generally find two different types - Theme Chooser themes, which apply themes on the fly. They are usually not as "complete" in that they may not be able to change as much as a flashable theme, but they are safer. And you can, of course, find flashable themes. The best way to find them is to search the above forum. You could also just google something like "<current ROM> themes". Building a running list of ROMs and mods should be that hard by just browsing the first couple of pages of the above xda forum. In general, the popular ones stay at the top.

    I would love to see this subforum grow and see much more traffic. As time progresses, I believe it will.
