    Ok, this is somewhat silly... I was explaining to a friend how to root stock 2.1 with adb (thanks to help on here), and in mentioning that he needs to use rsdlite to flash sprecovery, he stopped me and asked "what exactly does that mean, to 'flash' sprecovery?"... at which point I realized I don't know the answer to that. Is it simply a fancy word for replacing the boot image?

    I am no wiz but I believe you can replace "flash" with "install" and get your point across.

    "flash" just sounds so much cooler...
