Many thanks for the explanations, things are getting clearer now...

How can I find out what partition table my phone currently has?
Pressing Volume- and power gives me the following info:

BRAVO PVT1 SHIP S-OFF
HBOOT-6.93.1002

I got the phone from my son, don't know what he has flashed in the past. Now I want to understand those things for myself...

If it writes nothing about the hboot then you have stock.. if you want to flash another hboot , then first go to recovery, do a backup, then full wipe , then flash another hboot.. If you don't do the full wipe before flashing, then it may cause errors with some recoveries like 4ext being crashed right after loading. so be sure to do the full wipe..

Actually originally it's blue screen of death, the one that ms windows has. On this forum it is used as a short for any kind of hangups when you have to pull out the battery to bring your phone back to life. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I'd like to know what R5 is - I'm guessing it's a bootloader, but from the few mentions of it that I've seen, it looks like it's installed differently to RA or CM7. What's special about it?

Thanks, would be nice if you can add all the different "arrangement" (don't know the right word here) e.g. A2SD, D2E etc

The best method is to check partition sizes with "df" command. Via adb, or on the phone using any kind of terminal app.
Just look:

Code:
root@android:/ # df -h|grep mtd                                                
/dev/block/mtdblock3    250.0M    247.1M      2.9M  99% /system
/dev/block/mtdblock5    147.6M     36.3M    111.3M  25% /data
/dev/block/mtdblock4     40.0M      1.1M     38.9M   3% /cache
There's a nice table on Alpharev's homepage which shows what are partition sizes for all popular hboots. From there you can see mine is definitely STOCK

Question V6?
I think an explanation of V6 Supercharger is due. I would provide it myself, but I'm not sure I've fully grasped the concept behind it.
