Default (GUIDE) How To Use Search

First i was inspired of this by andyharney
i just copied this because ace dont know a lot of searchin atleast i think


Orginal idea link

Code:
XDA Forum Rule 1.
HTML Code:
1. Search before posting.
Use one of our search functions before posting, whether you have a question or something new to share, it's very likely someone already asked that question or shared that news.
Code:
Firstly you need to identify what you need to find.
HTML Code:
Aww, that ROM I like. The download link doesn't work. I need to find a working link.
Code:
Now, enter the ROM thread you wish to search & click this button -->

Now enter your search term -->

Code:
Wow, there is a few results. What next?
Now XDA has done a little of the work for you, you have to do the rest.
IF after exhausting every post that is returned from the search you cannot find the answer. Use the same technique that you just learn't to search the General & Q&A forums.
This time the button looks a little different. Don't let that put you off. Click this one instead -->


Code:
But Wait, I'm using the XDA App!
HTML Code:
Have no fear, you don't think XDA would have an app that wouldn't let you adhere to the rules, surely not.
Just open your XDA App, hit this --> then this -->
HTML Code:
If your lucky enough to have a hardware "Search" button, you can hit that too.
HTML Code:
Now if you still don't find what you are looking for. You may post.
HTML Code:
Failure to adhere to the XDA Forum Rules may lead to a Warning and/or Infraction.
