    if you install cm10,
    2.3.5/1.3.418 would be a downgrade.

    Ok so i can just root,bsr and flash CM 10? I want to go for battery life what would you recommend and is the mod blueflash for battery sleep worth downloading? I under stand that is only for ICS 4.0.4. I want something fast snappy and battery life

    phone needs to be running 2.3.4/1.3.380, or cm10 will not install correctly

    eclipse will have better battery life

    it will cause problems on cm10, i believe

    cm10 has some features, wouldn't call it snappy

    you're in good hands with themib, just wanna add and agree with him on some points.

    - Battery life, you are better off running Eclipse (2.3.5) or CM 7 (2.3.4)
    - Blue Sleep fix DOES affect and screw with CM10
    - CM10 is "fast" when it works. A lot of apps do not work well or at all with the X2... Kernel issues.

    Thanks Cliff
    there are still some people using cm10, and like it, but many went back to eclipse or cm7.

    Yea, preference I guess?

    I'd like a fully functioning phone. Eclipse for sure.
