    Correct me if I'm wrong... but it seems that any performance you'd gain from this update on a *non stock* rom would probably be the placebo effect...
    Read the post again an yes any update on the stock rom will affect any custom rom u apply because the updated kernel an radio will carry over to the custom rom always because the bootloader is locked all the rom is is an os that utilizes any radio or kernel that's on the phone so if u updated the kernel an radio with an update it will use that new kernel an radio and not the previous kernel or radio an sometimes the rom is incompatible with the new radio or kernel an will either crash or not have any signal an then the developers have to recompile it to be compatible with the updated kernel or radio or both but the cm9 has no problems with the update an seems to work better with it

    Interesting. Hadn't considered that the drivers associated with the radio could be part of the bootloader. Since this is the case, do you know why our ICS ROMs have trouble keeping data while the stock ROM does not?

    Well for one its a self compiled rom if moto would be kind enough to release the source code for their radios hardware ect we wouldn't have to compile an see what works unlike creating roms from the stock rom which is gingerbread. Where all u have to do is copy an paste the source code an software for the radios an hardware an then recompile the rom from scratch to ur liking. We are using a OS that moto has barely touch so were in the same boat a moto with this ICS rom we're compiling an seeing what works except moto has the upper hand. They have all the coding they need for the internal hardware where as for us we have to pull it from the gingerbread one or try an get it from the manufacturer an try to work out the kinks ourselves. Plus since were using the stock radio an kernel it may not be the one that moto intends to use for there ICS cuz of possible compatibility issues an could be the reason for the data drops. I have also noticed that the drops only occur when u move far enough from cell range that it can't keep the data signal(not the cell signal) an drops an is unable to pick it up but I think he has fixed it with the 4/18 build. An another one is when u make numerous calls in succession (ex call a friend then immediately call a family member after that call) an it is unable to recover data even with the new radio an kernel I have ran into that again. But like I said the new kernel an radio seems to be more responsive with the cm9 vs the previous ones. Better call quality better over all UI experience an an faster an more accurate data acquisition upon boot up an ending a single (not multiple) phone calls. Plus idk if this is cuz of the update I don't think so but I have noticed better picture quality with the camera.

    My mistake then. Awesome! I hope they apply this to Gummy, since I prefer it over CM9... though as I've stated before, I'm going to go with whatever rom COMPLETELY fixes the data issues first....

    I have seen better quality pictures but idk if it was cuz of the update or the fact I installed the 4/18 nightly an video an face lock still do not work data seems to be ironed out except for the 1 issue I stated above with the multiple calls

    Thats good, I've been following this thread from the beginning but stopped a couple weeks ago when I couldnt get safestrap installed. Now that I got it installed via droid4 utility I'll be trying out ROMs now.

    So, not to get off topic, but I have a few quick questions about the OTA update.

    1. I havent received it yet.

    2. Is there a safe procedure for installing it (on a rooted d4) after I do?

    3. Is there anywhere i can get it, without waiting for Verizon/moto to send it to me?
