I spent hours updating my guides and I don't ask you to press that THANKS button, be kind enough not to copy my guides to other forums. I know some noobs want to make a name on other forum boards... but hey, that's not an excuse!
What You Don't Need to Read
Aside from the topics you can use right away, much of this guide is skippable. I have placed some extra-technical yet newbie friendly information in self-contained sidebars.
Don't read this stuff if you are impatient, an alpha geek or simply don't know how to read and understand English.
I am going to make two(2) assumptions of who you are: (1) You are someone who is a new owner of Samsung Galaxy Young GT-S5360 and (2) you want to tweak your device and make it more customized but don't know where to start. I hope you know that some customization or mods(modifications) need more than "he says" and "they say" to be able to make it work. My goal is to help you know the "basics" so you won't end up messing with your phone or spamming Samsung Galaxy Young GT-S5360's section.
How this guide is organized
Inside this guide, you will find sections arranged in four parts. Each section breaks down into topics that cover various aspects of the section.Part I: Guide to Flashing ROMs and Kernel
This part present a layperson's introduction to what flashing is all about. This is a good place to start if you are clueless about what a ROM is, a Kernel, Flashing and why you are suddenly expected to use one.
The good thing about this part is that it focuses on how to use a Flasher and System Recovery without getting into the technical details of each tool. In other words, this part is aimed to help you learn how to flash and update your phone's firmware.

Uh-oh. You saw this girl in your neighborhood -and look! She's got a Samsung Galaxy Young like you! and you need to impress her with your SGY so she'd ask you to pimp her phone too but the problem is, you don't know where those cool tweaks are! Very Bad!
