    There's lots of ROMs out there for JB on the Verizon GNex. Any recommendations on the most stable Vanilla ROM? (the least amount of mods, closest to Google's release).

    How clean and close to the Google release is it? How's Google now behaving? Hmm... I guess I should go back to your thread and read it, lol. Thanks for the recommendation!

    Do you mean 3.6?

    3.6 is very stable and the developer Jake has been on top of if releasing updates almost daily. 3.6 has been as good as it gets..

    I'd put in my vote for Bugless Beast. Not a single force close and no additional mods included.

    Another +1 for Bugless Beast. It's as close to stock as can be and very stable.

    Jelly belly is great. I'm testing the JB waters presently and am very impressed with XenonHD. There are so many good ones out!

    Only tried the Vicious series (V1-V5), and it seemed very stable. Very close to stock as well...which is why I went back to LiquidSmooth. Why are you looking for the pure stock experience, and not want the options? That's what caused me to go back to Liquid.

    I first flashed Jelly Belly v3.5 - it was buggy, but I think it was my fault
    Then flashed Bugless Beast - I really liked that one, but it was too vanilla, no options
    so then I flashed XenonHD simply b/c it has some options (like volume rocker to skip music and power menu options). Been running it for a day now and it seems to be stable. Pretty happy so far.

    Are Play Movies and things like HBOgo working yet in either BB or 3.6?

    initially i flashed bugless, jelly belly had too many updates every day for me to keep up with, i loved bugless at first but had a few quirks (verizon visual voicemail would not work, which another user of the rom confirmed as well, also i felt like the typing during text messages was slightly delayed which was a real pain, lastly the battery life for my phone was awful with it), just flashed vicious and i will report back shortly with my review. i may mention that i was using bugless for awhile, i think i flashed it the day it dropped so maybe a week?

    Bugless Beast (7/14) for now. I've tried most of the others and most had little issues here and there that may actually be fixed on their latest versions. But Bugless Beast has worked perfectly since I installed it.

    Just curious; is there a reason why you're using Verizon visual voice mail over Google Voice?

    Keep us posted on Vicious. I love Bugless but the battery life is a bit of a concern. My stats for Phone idle and Cell Standby percentage of battery life used have been through the roof. Maybe its the kernel I'm using (on Jame Bond 3.3), but I'd like someone else's opinion

    Another vote for Jelly Belly. I don't use Play Movies anyway, so that's a non-issue for me.

    3.7 is treating me very well, and the non-linaro kernel that comes with it seems to be very good on battery.

    Impressed so far!

    So after 24 hours vicious has been much better in regards to battery life then bug less was (for MY phone, I stress this because I don't want to diss bug less and all phones are different)

    Idk, I just want to experience the Google version of JB, then I'll try mods.

    I'm running xenonHD and I really like it. I tried jelly belly for a day and it gave some trouble. It would get really hot then turn off the phone and it wouldn't come back on until I took the battery out and put it back in. :/ it could have been something I was doing though...but xenonHD has been great :D

    I'm really just waiting it out for AOKP JB to come to a pretty stable point though lol.
