I'm totally new to flashing custom stuff to android devices, and I have a few questions before I "commit".
I am using the SkipSoft Unified Android Toolkit. I've installed the device driver and I've successfully connected to the nexus in usb debug mode. I unlocked the bootloader.
The first step in the process is to flash TWRP 3.0.0. I downloaded the file. I'm assuming I should put the .img file into the "put_image_files_to_flash_here\Nexus7" directory? Then I'll select option 11. Boot or Flash .img Files to Device, and pick the Recovery partition to flash into?
Does the same procedure hold for the asop rom itself? I noticed there a lot more files in there than just the .img - do I just extract all the files into the above directory?
When I flash the boot.img - do I pick the Boot partition to flash into?
Are there any other steps I need to do to complete flashing the asop files?
How do I load gapps? Does the zip file go into "put_zip_file_to_sideload_here" or do I need to do something else with all the files in that archive?
Thanks for any help you can give me.
OK.Don't relay on toolkits, Google is offering all you need and get familiar with adb and fastboot, that's all you need.
