    Thank you.
    Now o red a guide from XDA ans from here on how to mod the phone. Now one guide says to use terminal emulator to do tje mods and the other one uses a rom manager. Is there any diffwrence between them? Are they both stable and reliable on tour opinions

    They're two different types of programs ROM Manager helps you manage what ROMs you want to install when you get to that point (and a lot more).

    Terminal Emulator uses a command-line prompt to run Unix commands. You can use it to modify settings, files, folders, etc.

    I would suggest looking up one subject at a time, and reading as much as you can about it. Start with the links in the post right above you...

    Good luck, and welcome to rooting!
