Default [Q] Upgrading from CM9

I've got my Verizon SCH-1800 that I wanted to start using again.

Looking at it now, I'm on CM 9-20120511-NIGHTLY-p1c, which is 4.0.4
The kernel is 2.6.35.7-g8f42093, inky-ghost@cyanogenmod#1

I've been reading around about new ROMs, etc but if I'm not mistaken, back when I rooted this processes were very particular about how to root this tablet and all I'm seeing is a lot of older threads. I guess I'm hoping someone can answer two simple questions for me:
- Is there a method of rooting that is the definitive way for this tablet?
- After so much time, is there a version of Android that is most stable for this aging tablet? ICS, JB?

Thank you if anyone can help, I appreciate it.

If you have CM9, then you have root access. As to stable or good rom's, you just have to read up on the different ones to see what sounds good to you. Then flash it. Don't like it? Try another.

Ok, so from now on it's just a question of installing zips via recovery? I never have to go back to stock again like you once used to?

Something more must be needed because I can't even flash this CM ROM without problems: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2032726
Recovery says it's a bad ZIP. But I got it from that link.
