How much of a gamble is it to upgrade the EE?
The EE is not prone to the WSOD. Some owners attribute their WSOD on the PE to Ermine but I believe this is just a coincidence. I have two PEs which were both upgraded to Ermine over 1.5 years ago and both still work with no problems. I have noticed an occasional white screen when coming out of hibernation and will admit that at first it took me breath away, but it doesn't happen very often and clears after a few seconds.
My EE was upgraded to Ermine well over a year ago and the only issues I have are the green pictures, and the stock browser crashes, but I really don't use it, I use Opera Mini and it has never crashed on me, not once. My EE comes out of hibernation perfectly each and every time so you may not experience the hibernation issue. There are other EE owners who haven't experienced the hibernation problem.
Ermine is pretty stable and I recommend the Entourage release unless you absolutely have to have the Google Play Store. Good luck.
