    Make sure you are downloading the one I linked too...not the one from May 2. The May 2 one is fine too but does have some minor bugs from what I heard.

    Side note: If you have gone through the process of getting s-off, your phone is already locked. You don't need to unroot and re-lock to install the leak. You will need to reinstall Amon-Ra recovery again though after the leak, and there is flashable file for this for people with s-off.

    is there any reason to wait for the OTA update instead of installing this?

    The only reasoning would be your own personal reasons. So long as you understand that you might not be able to take the OTA.

    Really what you are risking is the hassle of getting back to stock if it turns out the leak is a dead end...that you can't upgrade OTA after it.

    Getting back to stock can be an annoying and possibly scary process depending on your level of technical skill. But there are extensive tutorials online that cover all the steps to do it. The process involves S-Off which (from what I understand) has the potential to brick your phone if you do it wrong. I was rooting and Romming on the Droid 1 for a long time before I got this phone though, and I have already rooted this phone once. So I am comfortable with the risk.

    But again, it is possible (IMO likely) that you will be able to install OTA updates, as this leak technically IS stock. Last time that was the only thing preventing people from getting OTA. On the last update I was unlocked and rooted but still stock, and I got the OTA update just fine.

    No, the final official update will be an ota (over the air) update.

    strange you only got 2156 with Quadrant on Gingerbread... mine just benched a 2515. Maybe I can expect 3500 on ICS? :biggrin:

    Probably. Someone usually posts a rooted version on stock firmware as a rom. If you have a higher version of firmware installed though, or are not rooted it's going to be an involved process to get back to official though. Hopefully the official release of ICS will have a higher version than the leaks. Correct me if I am wrong though people.
