Default Questions about this phone

Ok so I'm new to this phone.. I am coming from G1 and I'm a bit confused as to what the .Bin files are and then comes the custom roms...



So let me get this right.. from what i'm reading, the .BIN in pretty much firmware and you load the roms on top of them? or can I load the roms just straight up?


Everywhere I read it says to use a 1.100.05 bin and then add the rom.. can I flash any liquid e rom over a newer bin? what's the deal?

Thanks for the info

If I've helped, say thanks!

Wow man, calm down

Firstly, you didn't posted in the good section, so post moved

Then, about your question, here is my answer, but maybe not totally right (But I'm pretty sure it is ) :

BIN files are the official acer roms. They also contains the baseband of the phone, which contain mainly the radio.

Custom rom, in zip format, are full rom. They are based on a certain baseband, that's why each rom recommand its own bin file (mainly, they are all based on the latest one available).

Hope this have answered to your questions.
