    if you have a lapdock yes .. if your having probs with 230 yes .. if not wouldnt bother no real difference..also do believe its fixed teh 1.2 ghz bump for those that didnt get it in teh other leaks

    I'm on 230, haven't seen anyone come up with anything why 232 is better other then people having problems with 230 which I'm not having so I'm just gonna stay right here.

    Apparently there are no webtop errors with 232.

    I have used the lap dock probably 12 to 15 hours and have not had any problems with it on .230

    Still & 1Ghz for me, but 230, 232 seem to run a little smoother. As your going to need to go back to get on the upgrade path anyway, why not upgrade to the latest?

    Who says we need to be on the upgrade path? My phone runs perfect and I was always told if something ain't broke don't fix it. Just like Moto taking us from a good 902 to a POS 905, I had nothing but problems with it. So until at least I know what the OTA is I'm not leaving this build for something that seems the same u know.

    232 has been fantastic for me. I have learned how to use the lapdock better and it's useful once again despite lacking a windowed interface.
    720p video and games look AMAZING on the lapdock <3.
    On 230, the Widget Locker and Mint.com apps kept either force closing or freezing, and I was having other weird issues with the lapdock.

    No ones saying you need to be on anything you don't want to be on dude, just contributing my humble opinion to the OP's original question, chill out..

    you might have done this but .. i was gettin long boot times..and some FC.. com.motorola.service error .. so i did a clean install of .902 then went direct OTA of .905 thru the phone.. went into boot recovery deleted cache. and did a full wipe before installed ICS..runs butter smooth...but if your running smooth with .905 id stay like you said... its funny how people have different experiences with the same phone..

    i notice on 232 while you are video recording you can take a snap shot
    also 232 seems to fix more of the minor bugs like sometime the brower stall on 2231 2233 229 230
    webtop runs smoother and a bit quicker than on 230
    i recommend after install of any ics leaks finish setting up your phone, reboot the phone you'll see a hugh difference in response time after reboot

    i like the new car dock they added too
    overall 232 is more polish than 230 and i'm glad every leak there's some improvement and more iron out at least we know moto haven't given up on the bionic yet

    Lol I wasn't meaning that n a horrible way, I was meaning it as it, is it bad to stay on a leak? Like am I missing something cause I'm new to all this flashing stuff. So if I came off the wrong way my bad, didn't mean it like that.

    Webtop errors were fixed in .230

    .232 has some framework changes and in general, feels smoother. It's hard to explain, it's hardly perceptible but it's there.

    If the leak makes your phone run the way you want it to run, there's nothing wrong with running a leaked build. If a final OTA were to be pushed out the had issues not present in the leaks, i'd have no problem staying on the leak.

    Agreed. I also like the fixed widget menu in alternative launchers.
