    Now the Rezound is running older software than the Thunderbolt. Ridiculous.

    Doesn't bother me at all actually... there isn't really any difference between 4.0.3 and 4.0.4, and it only got Sense 3.6 so really who cares, the Thunderbolt is still a dog by comparison.

    Root it and you won't have that problem. I've run Jelly Bean on mine for two weeks now. And prior to that I had Sense 4.0 running since July.

    They are both API 15. Not much difference between 4.0.3 and 4.0.4.

    The rezound is a better phone in every aspect. Nothing to be jealous about. Horrible radio, lower resolution by far, slower...

    Has anyone ever publicly said that the Rezound will not get JB?

    The reason I asked is because I was talking to a global support rep at VZW the other night (related to another line). I asked when the Rez was going to finally get its global update. After 'researching' it, he came back and said that update was part of the update to Jelly Bean. Nowwwwwwwww, we all know these VZW reps either don't know chit or are straight up bs'ing us, but I hadn't heard anyone else hint at a JB update for the Rez.

    I doubt it considering the Rez is already at the end of life stage.

    Can't wait for my wife's Thunderbolt to get ICS; still digging my Rezound... even with the Quasimodo hump from the 2750 battery.

    I just restored my nand of ViperREZ after giving Newt's ICS/JB hybrid a run for the past two days. Its a good ROM (the hybrid one) with only a few minor issues. I came back to the other because I'm about to hit the road for 4 days and I need the proven reliability of my trusty old ViperREZ.

    I've also run just about all of Neo's AOSP/AOKP JB based roms (and theres a lot of them) and in my opinion his TRON is a very solid JB based AOSP rom. If this is you're first time coming from stock ICS with Sense 3.6 I'd say start with ViperREZ. Its going to be a lot more familiar to you being that it's Sensed 4 based. Its also rock solid and is VERY customizable through the Venom HUB and Venom Tweaks. If you're feeling really sporty I'd definitly try TRON but I did notice that AOSP roms always seem to partition (not sure if thats the right term for it) my SD card differently. What I mean is, my titanium backups that are on my external SD didn't restore, I had to copy them to the internal SD to get it to work right...and the way it "orginizes" photo's is mildly annoying to me as well. Just minor stuff though. Go ahead and dive in! After you've made a Nandroid backup of course.

    Can't wait for my wife's Thunderbolt to get ICS; still digging my Rezound... even with the Quasimodo hump from the 2750 battery.
    I'm about two steps from joining you on the Quasimodo tip. Today I was down to 9% by 1530, though I did come off charger at 0545.

    I agree with Wanda, so far Viperrez is my favorite. I had similar troubles with the aosp roms and restoring backups. I also dislike the aosp Google search, the sense search launcher is better Imo.

    Do the camera & camcorder work in ViperRez? Is there a free hotspot feature?

    Camera and camcorder both work great. I'm not sure about the hot spot but I'd guess it does. Haven't read anything about it not working and I've been on ViperREZ the majority of the time since late July. It's really one of the best ICS SENSE 4 based Roms out there. Nils Business ICS (sense 4) being the other.

    Not gonna lie, adds some heft to the phone... however, 2750 mAh battery is like the friggin' Terminator: UNKILLABLE. battery & case $45 on Amazon.

    Bellingham, WA here (well, for a couple more months, anyway) -- 4G very recently came online... still very spotty -- hit or miss around town. Rocks in San Diego!

    Check the stickied guide that Mr. Smith put together. It's in the Mods and Roms section of the Rezound forum.
