    This is a great idea - it should be helpful to anyone new to the wonderful world of customizing the heck out of these phones. Typically instructions are written for those that know already, so it takes a lot of reading (which is good) to figure it all out! But when you don't even know the meaning of the words, it can slow you down.

    The deeper you get, the more you know... so I ask this, what does it mean to deodex your phone??

    If I may humbly point something out about your "Boot Loader" section. For the droid the extension of the file(s) we've been using with RSD Lite 4.6 is .sbf not .sdk. In the past for the dumbphones is was also .shx.

    Looking good Sam!

    When you've got folks like teddyearp proofreading and giving the list a once over you can't go wrong
    Chris

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    Thanks christim. Actually I think there's a couple more holes in it, i.e. in the "Stock" section doing a factory reset does NOT revert you back to stock 2.1. Factory reset erases the /data and /cache portions of the phone, it does NOT touch the recovery nor system areas where custom recovery images (CMRecovery/SPRecovery) and the su binary resides respectively.

    I'm just trying to help reduce the n00b confusion situation.

    good luck

    If I might add something... As a complete "newb" myself, one acronym I see missing, that I am curious about is SDK. I know that it means "Software Development Kit," but is this the same thing as APK? You might address this, if it's valid.
