Okay, here's my situation, and hopefully there are others out there wondering the same things I am:
I'm on ICS .206. I am NOT rooted, nor do I want to be rooted at this time. I would, however, like to go to the latest ICS leak. I know there are plenty threads out there, even so much as a "Simplified Version" thread, but all of these threads seem confusing for someone who isn't rooted and doesn't want root. At the very least, I'd like to be unstuck to get back on the OTA path (don't know if that's possible just yet). The main point is, I'm smart enough to know that if I don't know what I'm doing, I probably shouldn't do it, which is why I haven't attempted to follow any of the instructions out there yet.
My questions are as follows:
1) What are the correct, and most easy to follow instructions out there as of the time of this post?
2) Can a person upgrade directly from .206 to .211 or .212? (I believe I saw a thread somewhere that jsnweitzel said you could jump without installing .208 first, but I want to make sure)
3) When downloading the "Droid RAZR Utility Tool for D4" (or whatever it is) does this need to be downloaded to the phone, or to your PC? Is the program executed through your PC, or do you use the program via your phone on the bootloader menu?
4) What is "Fastboot?"
5) Is RSD Lite needed in any way, shape, or form?
These may seem like stupid questions, but I've searched around, and can't seem to find the answers I need. If anyone can be of any assistance answering these questions, I would be greatly appreciative of that. I'd prefer doing this all correctly the first time, and there aren't any "So Easy A Caveman Could Do It" instructions.Thanks in advance!
