I was sitting at .232, waiting for the fallen bodies on the bleeding edge to stop quivering, and once the final HoB came out, I charged ahead. I did a factory reset and moved up to the current OTA version. It was easy, fairly quick, and now I'm comfortable knowing that I am still on the official upgrade path.
Ultimately, those who wanted to stay stock eventually got what was promised, but thanks to HoB, those who flirted with the leaks got a taste of what was ICS was to provide, and those who rode the bleeding edge ultimately ended up back on track with the rest of us, ready to tackle the next challenge.
So HUGE kudos to SamuriHL for his coordination and hard work, and thanks to all who contributed to, took from, supported, criticized, praised, slammed, and otherwise were a part of his efforts!
