All the newbee questions in one topic (please help us clarify things up abit)
As with most forums, users tend to ask the same noobie questions over and over again. This annoys a lot of forum members, including me.
Now I, myself, walked into the lamppost.... And got stuck with a few easy to answer questions.
So for the rest of the newbee questions, please add them to this topic.
1. How do I backup my current ROM? As in: What do I need and what do I need to do?
2. What is "Hard-SPL"? What does it do? What does it allow us todo? Is it risk free? Will it destroy my data? What happens to my current ROM?
I have a HTC Touch Diamond with ROM 1.35.404.4 NLD, so I downloaded this "Hard-SPL-Diamond-OliNex.zip" and extracted it. I run "ROMUpdateUtility.exe", screw the warnings ... then it asks me to update ....
Thats the point where my nerd brains start to think, but I clicked it ... pfiew ... it asked me to update from image version 1.35.404.4 to 1.30.OliNex.
Now is my question of course: "What does this do and what is the result?"
My excuse for the two noob questions, but I have crawled this forum for quite a while and couldn't bring up a unified answer or "walktrough".
This is my first Windows Mobile phone and with my background ... I really want to "mess things up", you know what I mean
