Ok, I have a friend for whom I installed CM9 for on his Touchpad, think it was like Alpha 2. And he enjoys it and all, but he's been wanting something more updated and solid (in particular the wifi keeps crapping out on it randomly). So I guess I have two questions in particular regarding upgrading it to another build:
1. How will this affect saved files? In particular he plays a couple of games and he's made extensive in-game purchases with actual money (lame I know, but whatever his vice is). So will updating from Alpha 2 to whatever the newest build is wipe his data? Pretty sure he wouldn't like that. I mean, I know for my iPad/Phone, unless I'm missing something saved data doesn't like transfer from system to system and such, so while that isn't a direct example, bottom line is how will updating affect saved game data already on?
2. How stable are the nightly builds? I would prefer to get whatever one is the most stable and just sit on it pretty much, don't want to have to update regularly unless they add in a major feature like camera support finally.
3. Will I need a new Google Playstore file as well, or will the old one I have on it work still?
4. Finally, would I be better off looking into perhaps 4.1 or is 4.0 still better?
