I haven't had ICS long enough to test, but so far it looks fine. I don't expect it to get any better than my last ROM, simply because that was a main goal of his when he built it.

Rooted and stock JB on my Galaxy Nexus right now. I usually run AOKP, but it isn't out for JB yet.

JB absolutely flies!

If you're keeping it stock why root the Nexus, I am curious?

Some apps like MyBackup and even some simple ones like a flashlight app might need root privileges to work correctly

There are perks related to rooting with stock, still. Wireless tether, flashlight, and the ability to get updates even faster, just to name a few.

I was considering rooting(Rezound) but with ICS and being able to disable apps, I don't see the point. No new kernel is released yet so I can't improve battery.

I get rooting for MyBackup or Titanium Backup (my fave) but... a Flashlight? What kind of flashlight needs root privs??? Not one that I would use.
There are at least a dozen that DON'T need root.

Was wondering that myself, mine came with a flashlight app out of the box even before I rooted, no need to root for this feature

Most Motorola and Samsung phones pre-ICS do need root access for flashlight and screenshot management because of how they're called upon within Android...I'm no expert by any means but app developers have a very difficult time making them work without root access on some phones (like my old Atrix). Something to do with the fact that it wasn't a function natively built into Android and had to be created from scratch, without using a framework.

Samsung Intercept (Virgin Mobile)

Crappy Kernel 1.5

B-Rom 1.3

Overclocked to 800Mhz fixed.

After making these changes, it feels like a completely new phone vs. the stock phone!
