Have any of you serial ROM flashers ran into any problems with the Google music authorization limit? Is it true that authorizing it on the GNex, then switching roms and doing it again counts as two? I believe the stated problem was that you can only have 10 devices authorized, but can only remove 4 devices per year. Is there a work around or are my excessive flashing days over?

It was only a temporary thing Google fixed it and you no longer have to worry :)

You will however, after rom'ing a lot, have to de-authorize devices as it will fill up. I can't remember how many you can have.... 8-10 maybe? It's in settings in your Google music app/page on the PC.

I'm digging up this thread because I ran into this issue today. Google Music wouldn't let me play my tunes unless I deauthorized one of the 10 authorized devices. I opened up the settings to find that 1 of the 10 was my laptop, and the other were my phone (1 for each clean wipe, I'm assuming).

Anyways, I deauthorized one of the phones and could listen to my music, but at the top of the screen it says you can only deauthorize 4 devices per year. Any insight?
