    It's running flawlessly so far. In my opinion, if someone chooses not to flash it, they're simply missing out.

    My understanding is if you apply the patch BEFORE you flash gb, it will still work once you've flashed over.

    Hold down your power & home button till the screen lights up than let go of power. You should see a ! & you push the search button. Wipe data from there
