Well, I did upgrade to .232 successfully. So far I really like what I see. I know that .232 can flash back to .905 if need be. ICS does seem to make this like a new phone. I still assume I'll be switching the OTA when it's out. Looks like I'll be sticking with the Bionic for a few months yet. Still can't believe VzW hasn't aired ICS yet, but the official released better be near flawless and see JB come along soon after. Thanks everyone for your input (and for saving me a few bones)! Now if you'll excuse me, I'll be putting the new OS through its paces. I will still be very excited when word of the OTA is released.
