    No need.

    You already have 4ext right?

    Flash away

    It's safe, but you appear to have everything needed already.

    You have the latest radio, which suggests you have updated the latest firmware.

    You have hboot 1.50.5050 which is what you need to boot jb/cm10.1

    And I believe you said you have 4ext

    Joe blows hacks are there for those who rooted and s off before they upgraded firmware.

    I have personally never run Joe blows hacks....because I updated on the stock Rom.

    I am 100% positive you can flash angry bean. Then vvm fix and gapps.

    Follow angry bean instructions, and omit Joe blows hacks....you've got all the prerequisites


    If you are still unsure, post in angry bean thread...and they will reassure you that you are ready

    Have fun!

    Fyi...since you're s off, you can easily run ruu as a pg86img.zip through bootloader and get back to "out of box" state, while keeping s off.

    You've done the hardest part!
