    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.

    My battery life is MUCH better on .232 compared to .230.

    I'm having huge battery probs. I keep waiting hoping a new leak will come out cause I know as soon as I jump it will. Maybe I'll just bite the bullet and go to 232

    Moved to .232 from .2233

    I waited on moving due to battery problems mentioned by some on .230...So far its been great. No webtop issues as with .2233. Stock launcher works great with Lapdock 500, had to remove Nova Launcher that I was using for the Lapdock with .2233 due to the Lapdock not going into webtop mode with multiple launchers on the phone..it would switch from the stock launcher to Nova when you tried to activate webtop mode.. only way to get true webtop mode on the lapdock was with the stock launcher only installed. All of the extra features of the Lapdock 500 work (Camera, Ethernet, VGA, etc). Like previously mentioned by others...I love the new car dock screen and menu. I had issues with .2233 where VZ navigator would always open when I docked the phone...until I froze the app, but .232 allowed me to choose car dock mode as the default. Battery life has been ok...no better or worse than GB or .2233. 4GLTE seems to be more stable...had had some issues with GB..seemed fixed with .2233 also. I was also very happy to see the ability to volume down to silent back in ICS...I had really missed that in GB. Rooted with Razers Edge no problem.. WiFi Tether works great with it set to Generic ICS device. Only things I miss so far are 1) The FM Radio .apk I used in GB wont work on ICS and 2) The Droid X External Display app that I used on GB to view the NFL network via HDMI out wont install from Google Play from some reason.
