Since you already updated your firmware, that's the easiest way to make sure you're on the latest stock ROM.
Oh ok thank you. I guess so since I have Clockwork lol. I'm downloading the ROM now. Sorry for not knowing much.

P.S. You mention having a custom recovery installed (ClockworkMod), which means that while you are in recovery, you have root access (i.e. you are rooted). All you have to do is flash a ROM (though I do recommend upgrading your recovery to smelkusMOD or TWRP).
I will definitely do so now. Just wondering, with which am I less likely to risk bricking my phone if I ever wanted to flash a custom ROM. Also, I realize that there are quite a few custom ROM's to choose from. Are there any that you'd suggest?

Neither of those recoveries will brick your phone, and technically the stock rooted ROM is a "custom" ROM.

I don't have a recommendation for you as far as a ROM goes, because everyone is different. The only way to figure out what suits you is to try them all and see what you prefer. The biggest thing to know is that only Gingerbread and Froyo ROMs will be fully functional on this device. While there are ICS, Jellybean and KitKat ROMs for this device, they all suffer similar shortcomings, i.e. no HDMI, no FFC & no WiMAX.

O.o I'll be sticking to Gingerbread ROMs then. Its not worth giving up functions. And I just updated to one of smelkus' Recovery's now. I guess all that's left is flashing the rooted stock ROM. And thank you for suggesting that I switch. Using smelkusMOD is by far so much better and simplistic
