    I just successfully upgraded to 211, it went a lot smoother than the upgrade from 206 to 208. I never had to redo any step, and ICS root method still works dancedroid

    Can we go backwards with kernels?

    I'm still not quite yet on 211 and I'm not sure if I'll be able to be, but I was on 208. If for whatever reason I wanted 206, could I flash 219, the 206 kernel, and then the 206 leak?

    I think you can. If it doesn't work then you have to keep trying to get 211 installed.

    Yes you can. When I was upgrading to 208 from 206 I flashed the 208 kernel, then update failed for some reason, then i flashed the kernel back to 206 to try and boot up and it did. I had to go to work so I was gonna finish the update later. Lol.

    So. im on step 1, reflashing 219.

    Its not finished yet, but i'm seeing things like:
    FAILED (remote: ), and "writing 'cdrom' ... INFOPreflash validation failure".

    Am i going to regret this?

    Don't worry, that is completely normal. Some of the steps will succeed and some will fail. You'll fix that in the next steps.

    Here is a more detailed (but outdated) guide which says that you will see a lot of failure messages at this step (step 7).
