Spot on. Youtube videos offer some insights, but reading these forums is a must. I would never go into modifying a $600 or $700 anything without beeing 100% sure in what I was doing yet we see posters here that perhaps never even browse the forums for info and they mess their phones up and come begging for help. First step, take time to research....and I mean take some real time
