I want to flash my phone with a custom Rom (most likely CyanogenMod). I have a Nexus 5 on the Tab Medium (10 months in to the 24 months). Is there anything I should know about flashing the ROM while it's on contract?

The phone is yours to do with as you please, Rajan... not having paid it entirely does not change anything. You may forfeit your warranty though, but again that would apply whether the phone is paid in full or not. As long as you are confident in what you're doing, and as long as you keep paying the Tab, you can do what you want with your Nexus :)

And if your ROM flash or another experiment tanks the phone or whatever, you can use any other unlocked or Koodo handset you like that will take your original Koodo SIM, as long as you keep on paying the tab.
