If you do not care about s off, flash away, if you do, then s off first, load eng bootloader and then flash.
Okay. that clear things up.
And, I'm just wondering, what really the advantages of s-off, beside to superCID it?

SuperCID, additional fastboot commands..coolness factor. If you are not super geeky with flashing and using adb, may not really need it. User preference.

Hey buddy, any ideas on why I would be getting "Package File is Invalid?" I have S-On and it's locked (T-Mobile). I was under the impression that I could just flash it by putting it on my memory card. That's the only problem that I've found to this point. Help...

thanks

well. so far, i tried to flash it too. from what i saw on the earlier posts, rename it to PH85IMG.zip, put it to root, and then reboot to bootloader. but that's as far as i go. it's says no image, no image or wrong image, and it's loading forever. maybe i'll try to redownload it.

edit: i'm so stupid. I have to go back to stock rom. i'm currently using NRG.

I got into hboot, and clicked on recovery.

you dont need to go into recovery! just place the PH8IMG.zip in the root of your sd card, restart with Volume down + Power button, and it does the rest.. just make sure you relock your bootloader before you start this...once it finds the PH8IMG just updates everything, it might also reboot the bootloader once, just have to be patience and everything is simple!!

how do you relock bootloader, and which stock rom did you use?

I'm completely stock.

How does it look for it? I go into hboot and nothing happens. It just sits there like normal. Should I give it a few min, or something?
