    Thinking of rooting, but I read on one thread in the forum that said you don't need to root to install the ICS leak. Is this true? Which leak is the most reliable, I use my bionic as my primary phone. Should I wait for the OTA in Q4? Thanks for any help!

    No, you dont need to be rooted.
    Go with .232 leak or wait for the ota. You can go back to .905 from .232 if needed though

    I agree. 232 rocks. I have been running it since the day it was found and its very reliable.

    Would I have to go back to the .905 for the ota, if I go to 232?

    Follow the link eye_dea posted. Read and follow the op. Only download the 905 files though. Run HoB and choose 905 options and it will direct you from there:).

    Where would one find this ICS .232 leak as I don't believe I have found any posts with a non rooted ICS install.
