I don't know. I wouldn't use it without assurance from someone who knows for sure. Sorry I can't help more.

just register as a developer, no strings attached, just create an account and you can download all os recovery images

i moved up all the way to 2.2.1, then reinstalled 1.2.1 because i wasn't liking lollipop
also unlocked the bootloader, flashed CWM and rooted

now i want to try the BitO kernel, which is only available to 2.2.1, so installed the 2.1 update (through CWM, as i forgot to flash the stock recovery for 1.2.1)

now i try to install 2.2, but recovery gives me an error
flashed CWM again, doesn't want to flash the OTA
flashed the 2.1 stock recovery, it starts the update but almost immediately gives me an error

yes i could flash the 2.2.1 OS recovery image, but then i would lose all my data....

EDIT: never mind, fixed it, flash boot.img, recovery.img, erased system, flashed system img, all from 2.1 update zip file, reboot, now 2.2 is installing through OTA

Just curious, what was it about 2.2.1 that you didn't like? What was wrong with lolipop?

i prefered the way the notification pulldown worked in KK, some settings were quicker to reach

not too fond of the navigation buttons either
it's weird i know, they're in the same location, have the same function, but they just look wrong
look too much like the symbols on a Playstation controller

and GameGuardian doesn't work on Lollipop (yet), but by going back to KK i managed to fix what i wanted to fix

i hope nvidia gets it right this time with the 5.1 update, disabling swap would be nice
