[Q] Advice on flashing AOSP Rom
Hi, its been almost a year since I flashed a ROM on my device, I'm currently on a Sense 5 ROM, ViperXL 4.2.0 to be exact, and its worked perfect and great and I saw no reason to switch to anything else. After a year though my phones been getting kinda laggy, and I mysteriously have very little Internal Storage, even after deleting almost every single app, I only get about 500mb to 800mb of free Internal Storage to install apps. So I'm looking to try flashing a new rom and starting fresh but I have forgotten alot of my knowledge on flashing and was seeking some help.
I want to try flashing the latest stable Cyanogenmod Build 10.2.1
I have a few questions before I do though,
1. Is it still necessary to downgrade the touchpanel firmware?
2. What version of TWRP do I need? I'm currently on v126.96.36.199 but after doing research, I found out there's new versions. Do I need 188.8.131.52 or 184.108.40.206?
3. Do I need to RUU or am I already good to go?
4. Can I flash the 4.4 Gapps or do I need to flash another version?
Here is my bootloader info:
