Curious what everyone else out there does. I flash nightlies on the same rom for a while, but I only stick to that rom for a couple months. So I guess a hybrid(you can pick multiple choices)

I wait after a major update to Android until a stable ROM appears, so maybe every 3-4 months.

I was quite a big flashaholic for some time. But the thing was that I, while being on a different ROM, forgot how fast and smooth stock actually is. When you're using a different ROM, placebo effect takes care of the rest. Suddenly, 1 day of battery with 3h of screen time seems amazing, while in reality, stock can do just as well. And since I don't miss any of customization, I'm good. So, to answer your question, I'll stay with stock till I buy a new phone. No more custom ROMs, no more flashing. And I Iove it.

Titanium back up pro. Push one button, restore all apps and data in minutes. Just don't do system apps and you'll be fine

I used to go from one ROM to another but finally just settled on CyanogenMod. Now I must admit I dirty flash all the time, I ,mean I flashed Cm10.1 over a stock ROM with no issues it ran perfectly. I haven't used Titanium Backup in a while. In addition I use CyanDelta to flash nightlies so I don't really have to worry about reinstalling apps.

Miui updates weekly... so usually every week so long as the build proves to be bug free.

On my sgs2 I flashed different ROMs every month, but on the gnex all I've been using is miui (stock android is boring to me, plus I like all the new features).

Anymore I only use stock and rasbean. I used rasbean till 4.2 came out, used stock unrooted 4.2 til about a week ago and am now back on rasbean for the minor added features.
I agree with the poster that stated stock gets just as good battery and just as smooth as custom though. I simply flash for fun and the additional features.
