at one point I was a noob too. still am
but it's just scary doing something when you can potentially lose hundreds of dollars. IE: can you flash over a non voodoo lagfix? on my G1 I could flash from sdcard. here I have to use internal memory. etc. just a bunch of small questions.
it's especially hard when the person writing the tutorial assumes the reader knows something
Heck even I wasted 2 hours this morning trying to undo a soft brick when the istructions just said "stock vibrant rom" I spent hours flashing J16 until I found out he actually meant JFD
and you cant always get into download mode like the instructins say
