Using a custom ROM can cause your device to BRICK. USE ROMS RESPONSIBLY, (READ the WIKI and Upgrade Guides) BEWARE THE RISKS, BUT HAVE FUN!!

Additions, deletions, etc. certainly welcome. Trying to focus the new members here and break the trend of old questions and concerns being brought up over and over again.....

Mod Edit:
For this to be a useful tool for new members and a a sticky post, then it will be ROBUSTLY modified. This not the place for loads of questions. Perhaps the occassional suggestion for an addition/change. We need to be cautious that (as stevebonning has done) only key matters are linked; no point in this becoming an endless list of confusing links. Once considered requests will be removed.

Additions made 09/02/08**

this is one of the best websites i think i have ever seen or had the chance to learn so much from, i do have one quick question though, i did hard spl 2.10 olipro and then i did the sim unlock and supercid and have flashed a rom off the sd card but when i checked the spl it says 1.40 olipro know, do i need to hardspl again or is it fine and if i did a hard reset and plus the flash i said before the phone is still sim unlocked right? not trying to be redundant at all but just curious and i possibly missed this somewhere but dont remember seeing it in what i have read. thank you and thanks to everyone at xda you guys are AWESOME

Welcome to XDA! You did everything correctly & are fine. Your sim unlocked & have hardspl, so you don't need to do it again.
