Default Best OS for 8700c (currently)?

Please Login to Remove!

So I have been trying to determine what is the best OS for my 8700c. I tried (unsuccessfully) to upgrade to v.4.5.0.37, and am currently running ATT's officially released v.4.2.1.96 (platform 2.3.0.79). I have read about mixed experiences on the 8700 with OS 4.5 and was curious for people's thoughts as to whether I should continue to beat my head against a wall trying to upgrade, or rather remain content with the version of 4.2 I am on. I do use Google Maps, and would be sad to see that not working in 4.5. (Similarly - any significant benefits to upgrading to a newer version of 4.2?)

I am pretty new to this (i just figured out to upgrade from OS 4.1 last week), so your feedback is appreciated.

4.2.1.114 is very stable (no battery pulls)
Google Maps 2.2.1 with voice search works great
