I am new member of XDA Developers. I have been using Sony Xperia Neo L (MT25i) for quite some time. By searching on Google I found out about this site. I am really very excited to know that I can all sort of MOD's on my phone.

But I really need to some basic information, as it is my first time.
1) Upside & Downside of Modding
2) What is deference between Custom ROM and Stock ROM ?
3) What is deference between Custom Kernel and Stock Kernel ?
4) How can I make backup of my phone's Stock ROM & Kernel ?
5) Is there any newbie guide available ?

More Questions coming. And I am kinda lost with all of the topics for Neo L Roms and Kernels :confused:.
Any Help will be appreciated.
N.B - If you think it will be too much lengthy to explain, you can just reply with link/links. So, I can read and understand them.

Welcome to XDA!!! :)

First you may wanna read the rules for starting a new thread..http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2080250 and http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1464229...
After that read the sticky threads in all the sections..nd sure there are newbie guides available..just search and you'll find them :good:

Stock Rom and Stock Kernel are the ones which Sony gives you when you get the phone...
Custom Roms and Custom Kernels are the ones which the Devs here make...these are the modified ones..with tweaks for better battery, performance..ui changes etc..
