I am trying to learn here but I keep getting conflicting answers on what I can and cant do for instance some say I should tick repartion box in odin others say no,its the same with the phone being locked to provider, some say it needs to be unlocked, and some say it does not well I have a phone that is very wearing to use with its official update that is supposed to make run better and so much conflicting information that I have had just about enough, please please please will some one point me in the right direction so that I stand a chance of sorting my phone without bricking it thanks.....
P.S.sorry for the essay but I am so frustrated I thought these forums were to help people like me who want to learn............

-No theres no reason to tick repartition unless you're flashing a 3 part firmware.
-im pretty sure it doesnt have to be carrier locked
-jb update for us was a disaster :/
You thought pretty wrong. Many people left xda because of the community :/

Nice one, JB, is running smooth and quick, after reading about a ram hack on this site , which has increased my max ram to 624mb instead of
a mere 482mb I was left with after updating to JB, so for now I shall play with this until I get bored then it will be time to bite the bullet and come into the light and join the ever growing community that believe in freedom.... thanks for your help Teddytsen
