Downloads: MD5SUMS
System: 260 Cache: 8 Userdata: 168 (recommended, future proof, fits any gapps)
System: 250 Cache: 8 Userdata: 178 (should be safe)
System: 230 Cache: 8 Userdata: 198 (possible but you need to use bextons gapps installer and dont install offline voice recognition)
System: 210 Cache: 8 Userdata: 218 External gapps required (see 3rd post)
Why does /system need to by so big? Well to put this in perspective the gnex and n7 have 600mb /system partitions. So their /system is larger than our entire nand (~430mb usable). The 'base' android build is <200mb. The real bulk comes from gapps which are like +40mb the bulk of that is the new voice recognition dictionaries for google now. So theres the gist. Now heres the problem. Dalvik-Cache will be no smaller that 100mb so we're pretty much left with 60mb for apps and data. Which is way too small. Which makes a2sd pretty much required. If youre like me and have <10 apps the builtin a2sd should work fine otherwise you will need m2sd (see QA below) or you wont be able to install /anything/ from the market due to 'low storage space' errors.

**I dont have enough space for all my apps? A: try m2sd
**Where can I get info on the builtin a2sd? A: see here for quick run down.
**What is blackrose? A: Please do NOT try and flash this until you find out. And do NOT ask in this tread
**Why is my screen not working? A: Reformat your sdcard. Sounds stupid but its the answer
