Tutorial {x10}[NEWCOMER/NEWBIE/BEGINNER]-FULL PDF GUIDE FOR ROOTING/FLASHING/ULBL/RLBL

Hello Newcomers and welcome to XDA, first of all. I created This thread for easing you all especially newbies and get used to XDA as fast as possible and also share my experience too along with it

In this thread, i will attach few zipped files containing PDF Tutorial which includes:



[BEGINNER]
*Necessary Knowledge needed to be learnt by Newbies - DONE
*Rooting Guide - DONE
*General Guide for Recovery & Flashing/Instalation of Custom ROM - DONE

[INTERMEDIATE]
*Unlocking Bootloader - DONE
*General Installation of Custom ULBL Kernels and ROMs - DONE

[XPERIENCED]
*Relocking Bootloader And Restore - DONE. Tested

HTML Code:
For experienced relocked users: THANK YOU

Why did i divide into three categories: Beginner, Intermediate, Experienced? Actually, i'm not doing this for fun like in Game Level. It's in order to keep your phone works safe and functioning normally in your daily life. If the person took his/her steps too early, doesn't know what he/she is doing or doesn't know what's going to happen next, mistakes could be easily made and he/she might face consequences of bricking the phone.

In order to tweak/play safe with your phone, the guide PDFs will inform you about necessary knowledge needed to be learnt in certain level step by step. I don't mind you learn quickly, but if you done anything wrong to phone, Sorry alright because i'm not gonna be responsible to your actions to your device. so In your own Risk

If you have doubts, feel free PM me or other ROM developers.

For Newbies, About the files, pls be patient alright If Can, please recommend other X10 newcomers/juniors who came here recently, for preventing them from bricking their phones]

Specially Thanks to:
DooMLoRD for providing awesome, trusted fixed flashtool
Azuzu for Rooting/Flashing Link And Flashtool
Zdzihu for his Xrecovery

X10Forever for allowing me continue writing Relocking Guide using MoKee OS .if not, i couldn't continue post result here

Xperienced Definition: Have Wide knowledge of Unlocking Bootloader, Flashing Custom UB Kernels, and Custom ROMs.
But another distinctive characteristics among users [Not Me alright, i'm just lucky ] that is able to Analyse Cause of Problem of rebooting and restoring locked bootloaders' ROM safe and sound. Execute Absolute Restoring methods for Relocking + Restoring Locked Bootloaders ROM. In other words, he/she may unlock /relock bootloader/restoring as he/she wants.

Lol Okay, okay..Here's it

There will be only 1 File for now..Excluded One. Those who have already unlocked their ROMs, pls read this carefully. Relocking bootloaders Steps may vary due to flashing which ROMs. Relocking is simple, but restoring original data won't be easy, may brick your phone. [Serious Mode]I survived twice
