    Not all updates have to do with the carriers.

    Have to disagree here. I'm pretty happy with my unlocked and rooted Note 2 running Beans' Rom. I liked my previous Galaxy Nexus but the Note 2 is superior. I'm on Verizon, FWIW, so the Nexus 4 isn't an option.

    Even with the Galaxy Nexus, updates didn't come right away. Generally at least a month before Verizon would release an update, and just about all of the AOSP/AOKP ROMs had little annoying bugs that just weren't there on the official Verizon releases.

    I think I will just wait until it's available over the air or when Kies is fixed. I would probably screw it up otherwise. LOL

    I've been through tons of custom roms and none has really matched the elegance of stock Android.

    Maybe not OTA, but you could install the latest version the minute it was released.

    Beans' GNII ROM pretty much blends all the good and elegance of stock android with the enhancements and S-pen functionality of touchwiz while removing the drawbacks. With stock android you lose a lot of the S-pen functionality. the ROMs I typically ran on my nexus were the latest OTA leak or dump but rooted, deodexed, zipaligned, and busyboxed with a couple of tweaks such as unlocked tethering and the extended power menu.

    Yes but on the Verizon version, a few things wouldn't work and others wouldn't work as well as with the OTA ROMs. It was always a bit of a compromise if you wanted the absolute latest.

    Finally got Jelly Bean to update on my Galaxy s3 via Klies. Updated the firmware by connecting via WiFi to Klies.
