I have been reading this forum for 2 days but it doesnt given me something.. it looks like its made for peoples who have skills with HTC devices (i am good skilled with flashung Samsung devices)
Hi sramie, this should be in general section but basically, and I'm not going to get too detailed here, hboot is your original bootloader. Same as when you first rooted a Samsung through Odin. You had to boot the device into its bootloader before you could do anything.
Fastboot is effectively you're first OEM version of Odin and or recovery but on the phone itself. You can boot into it and then flash everything else via commands from a pc. Some of these commands are Adb some are fastboot. So these commands are behind the GUI of Odin. When you try and flash a Rom on a Samsung these are the commands given just through a graphic interface without you having to type them into a command prompt.
Ruu is just the original software installed on a device in its entirety. It can be region or provider specific. That's why we don't all get updates ota at same time.
I'm not going to go into step by step here because searching and learning is the best way to understand what you are doing. And there are heaps of tutorials already on these forums. Try search terms recovery, adb and tutorial. Should give you what you need.
