Flashing and ROMS:
Flashing a phone allows the user to customize every aspect of their experience and even "cook" their own ROMS to make their device be the same every time they hard reset.
There are two types of phones, GSM and CDMA. If your phone is from the US, it is probably CMDA. Otherwise it is most likely GSM. To flash a rom, first you need Hard SPL. Hard SPL according to the wiki: "This modified bootloader allows a much safer flashing process to take place since it reduces the chance of permenently bricking your HTC based device. It also removes the need to CID Unlock the device since it ALWAYS reports SuperCID when flashing." This basically means it allows you to use custom ROMS on your phone.
