    have you read the links i posted *thoroughly*? they explain a LOT in very plain terms.

    and what is your level of understanding of general programming? what about linux?

    ...on a scale of 1-10, 1 being you have zero programming / linux knowledge; 10 being why the heck are you asking questions, you're a master! ;) lol

    Clockworkmod is the only recovery for the D2, SPRecovery isn't compatible

    Okay thanks, is there a way to test it or is it only used if you really need it?
