    Flashing a ROM is basically like installing a different operating system on your phone. All ROMs are different in some way and offer different things. Liberty offers a customizable experience while Apex just tries to clean out unnecasary blur. Flashing a ROM simply means installing a ROM. To flash a ROM you need koush's droid 2 bootstrap installed. Then just follow the instructions from the ROM's creator as some may have different steps needed to install.

    Oh and the bootstrapper can be found in the market.

    Before flashing a new rom, make sure you make a backup of your setup now! And make a copy of that on your pc somehere.
