    Default Rooting Bionic ICS

    Now i'm a little uneducated when it comes to rooting a phone. I've been doing some research though and learning along the way but i do have a quick question as to whether or not it matters to install a rom compatible with the current update. I have 4.0.4 on my phone assuming that is ICS. Why would i need a rom that is specifically for ICS. Any help is appreciated and if it is unclear as to what i am looking for just comment below and ill try to explain a little more. Thanks in advanced!

    Yes you have ics. Yes you need to flash a rom compatible with ics. Not sure exactly what you're looking for can you provide some more info?

    If you're just wanting to avoid JB, someone posted in the Bionic JB update thread a few days ago how to do that when I asked the question. He said you do need root, but then can change the properties file to something other than the current ICS build number so the update checker won't recognize it as a build to update. That way you can keep stock ICS if you want. After the Razr fiasco and JB's wifi connection issues, I'm considering doing that (never explored rooting before, so just reading up on it here and there).
