Okay, I made the jump from 232 to 244. ONLY after reading the OP several times AND reading the entire tread. I also took a look under the hood, examined the .BAT files and the XML file to see specifically what they are doing.
I jumped to 232 because I finally got a Bionic Lap Dock several weeks ago. I found the battery life to be poor. I've heard that 244 is much better.
I'm resigned to getting a new phone that doesn't have 'red headed step child' status, so I've been looking at this like a custom ROM. Besides I'm out of warranty since I got the Bionic on the first day of release.
Nice job Samuri. Very painless in executing this update.
