    It's running flawlessly so far. In my opinion, if someone chooses not to flash it, they're simply missing out.

    My understanding is if you apply the patch BEFORE you flash gb, it will still work once you've flashed over.

    Hold down your power & home button till the screen lights up than let go of power. You should see a ! & you push the search button. Wipe data from there

    I must say, after installing it and getting my homescreens back, i'm loving this. It is very snappy. Its quick and appealing to the eyes!

    It is worth it!!! It is working flawlessly. My apps were restored (96 of them) in 3 minutes.... The stock launcher is awesome. So you lose root until it is gets rooted...Big deal IMO. I left WIFI on last night before bed, which would use 50% over night, and it dropped 5% in 6 hours. Go for it....you wont be disappointed....just make sure you wipe before install, and create a backup that you can go back to if you dont like it.

    That would be, and you know I really watch my language because this is a family friendly forum, a Hell yes. Get it it's great. Running it on my D2 now. Not only will it make your phone nicer, it will take the stench of the TB this and TB that away from you.
