Depends on the ROM. If I like it I'll stick to it for a while.

For those staying with stock... Don't you flash your kernel also?

I find stock kernel the fastest and most reliable. Sure, I could get better battery life with custom kernel, but since I mostly charge my phone overnight, 10 hours of battery doesn't make much of a difference. And stock just works. You don't have to worry about SODs or reboots or anything. Perfect for me.

For most of my time with the GNex I have been on stock but with a custom kernel, though the stock kernel does work really well I got used to the extra things like headphone volume boost, colours/contrast, fast USB charge, etc. If anything I favour those features over battery life, though to be honest I have never experienced bad battery life no matter what ROM or kernel I've tried.

I run the CM 10.1 nightlies, and only clear my cache and my Dalvik cache before each flash. My apps are not affected by the frequent updates. It's only when a version change occurs that I have to fully wipe and reinstall everything.

I was a major flashaholic until I found xblack, since then I haven't flashed anything else, so been like a month. I'm trying to live a life that doesnt consist of messing with my hone daily. I found something super stable that works great, so I've stuck with it. Only thing I've flashed since is the latest zen kernel
