    While nightly builds are the latest version, they come at a risk. I installed yesterday nightly cm and started having fc. Lucky I backed up the existing Rom before updating. I suggest backing up prior to upgrading so you can go back to the last Rom.

    Always good to see that posted again as a bump, Nightly Builds are about the most alpha code there is unless specifically noted otherwise and are NOT for the inexperienced to play with. There have been instances where even a backup is not enough and users have had to completely flash and rebuild their tablets.

    I used to be a mainframe programmer and an aware of backup,backup backup prior to updating.

    MVS = Man vs. System! I was in the same boat, finally just gave up on nightlies, now i read the fix list/bug list and realize that i only really need to update about every 8th or 9th release.
