    Yes. Once you SBF you will have to wipe data so your phone will be like "new."

    It really depends on you. Stability wise the ROM is pretty decent. It won't reboot or crash on you. However some apps force close a ton out of the blue (namely Facebook, gmail, email, other web browsers and apparently the new Google now update.) I ran it for a while and I liked it. Blue tooth also does not work correctly. It all really depends on if you can live with the things listed above. If so then yes I strongly reccomend it.

    I don't remember if G now is preinstalled in the GApps... if it is, do not update it from play. Enjoy.

    so i i think i did something wrong in my attempt to sbf my phone

    i tried the RSD thing and this is what i got droidss.jpg

    i took out the battery and tried getting into recovery mode but it does not let me, it goes to "failed to boot 4" then under it "starting RSD mode"

    so i think it might be bricked or something :/
