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 v22.214.171.124 but after doing research, I found out there's new versions. Do I need 126.96.36.199 or 188.8.131.52?
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:

You don't need to downgrade your ts firmware.
You can use either of those versions you mentioned, some people have had issues with 2.7 not being able to mount the sd card though.
No need to RUU, your current firmware is fine.
You need to flash the appropriate gapps for whatever Android version the ROM is, you would only flash the 4.4 gapps if you're flashing a 4.4 ROM.
Is there any reason you're not flashing a KitKat ROM though? Support has ended for the lower Android versions now.
