I will make this short and sweet.  Anyone that was waiting for the Jelly Bean image to be available direct from Google can now go get it here:  This should make flashing new ROMs a lot less worry-some.  Get the images and then go ahead flash to your heart’s content. <— Directly to the file if you don’t want to see it on the page.
