Ok, I know this has become a tribute thread, but I still have questions.
I have a few phones that I'm messing with, so it's not just one tread. I'm not seeing anything for people new to XDA to get up to speed. Even the How-To's make an assumption that you have basic knowledge.
There's a lot of lingo used... bootloader unlock method is established... I have TWRP... lg up tot file... fastboot mode... Kingroot...
Or as AptLogic put it:
If you don't know what a locked bootloader is, or think that Chainfire is a new video game, you shouldn't be here, go read a little about Android and the Galaxy S5 before continuing.
So, I guess the big question is, Where in XDA-University is the "Dummies Guide to XDA"?
May your god go with you,
