I think to a lot of people (myself included) seeing the letters "RC" does indeed indicate that it's a release candidate. I got all excited when I saw your thread in the topic list.

On the flashing eng hboot thing, I agree with raitchison. All of the stuff to do with rooting/S-OFF etc has a certain degree of risk, it's not 100% "safe". But if you carefully read up on everything in advance, and then carefully carry out the necessary procedures, you will have to be pretty unlucky to end up bricked.

Specifically with the eng hboot, when you have copied the file to your phone, before dd'ing it you should run a checksum on it for safety's sake, to make sure you have downloaded and copied a valid file and not a corrupt one. The checksums are in the Wiki.

As long as you do this and are then very careful in typing that instruction to do the "dd" itself (copy and paste can help reduce the possibility for error), then the only thing that could go wrong really is your phone losing power or crashing right in the middle of the dd. I think you'd have to be extremely unlucky for that latter possibilities to happen.

Ah alright, I feel more comfortable flashing the ENG HBOOT now, I guess I'll go ahead and flash it after I've rooted it, thank you.

When I try to flash the recovery it says the syntax of the command is incorrect.
No I am not putting in the quotes, I even copied and pasted it and put the name of the recovery in there, I keep getting the same error. What to do?

TY

Why did you remove the <>, should I do that for the rest of the commands?
Something to do with win 7?
In CWM Recovery I'm getting a bunch of errors.
E: failed to mount /cache (Invalid argument)
E: Can't mount /cache/recovery/command

etc etc and it continues. What'd I do wrong?

I put those in there as place holders. Your files names replace those.

Don't worry about that stuff. It will say that because you just erased those partitions.
