I've been reading around in the forums here for a few weeks now and finally decided to join. I have a A955 D2 and been wanting to upgrade it. I've been wanting to try CM7 but I can't figure out the SBF (system boot file). I don't want to brick it but I can't seem to find any real guides on how to perform a SBF flash or when you need to do a Full or partial SBF flash? I know a SBF can brick your device if you put a new on over a old sbf? or something like that? Not sure I have a hard time understanding it.
I've also been looking for info about using these other roms on other networks then just Verizon? For instance I want to have my phone flashed over to prepaid Cricket or something else of that sort. Will I still be able to use my phone with them? I don't have my phone on Verizon atm I'm using it on another local prepaid carrier with unlimited phone, text, +2.5GB data for $35. Its considerably cheaper then Verizon's plan for me at least. "Please excuse my improper formatting and grammar."

Thanks in advance for any replies!
P.S. Any reference guides for some of the terminology would be great if someone has a link to a threat I'm able to Google most of it but lots of it leads me back to these forums w/o much a definitive answer.
