I don't know where I am or where I'm going, so I'm looking for a little advice on both. I have a Droid 4 and moved up to ICS with safestrap a while ago. Now, I hear the official ics upgrade is available and I figure I should move up, either to the official ICS release or at least to a newer unofficial rom. I see a lot of discussion about moving from .206 to .208, or .213, .219...etc. I'm not really sure what applies to me. Attached is an image of my "About phone" info. Should ICS_ALPHA_IML74K map to one of these .2xx builds?
So, that's the "I don't know where I am" part. Can someone help me clarify my starting point so I can figure out the best way to get where I'm going?
Ok, and where am I going? I think ideally I'd like to get back to the absolute bone stock and move through the official upgrade path, but the prevailing sentiment seems to be that this isn't possible. I've seen many posts discussing how moving from a "leaked" ICS build back to GB will (soft) brick you. (Side note... how explicit is the term "leaked"? I assume this refers to any unofficial ICS installation, but just in case this refers to a subset that might not apply to me, I'm curious.) So, I'd prefer to take the blue pill (revert to stock GB .219 or so), but if that isn't an option, what's the latest and greatest available ICS rom right now? ICS .219 seems the highest number I've seen mentioned, but there seems to be more conversation around the earlier ones. Which one should I go for in terms of balancing being current and being stable?
