Re: Just a few Questions abou updates

The Apache is much easier to flash. No unlocking needed. Put it into bootloader (Power+Reset+Record). Then plug it in and run the kitchen, mach the REV verison with the bootloader version on the phone then select your apps and hit play. I got some videos on it. Link in my signature. Enjoy and let me know if you needed anytihng else.

Not a problem, but c'mon. You can NOT brick this phone. It is built like a rock. We have yet to see some one brick an Apache. We have with the Mogul and Vouge though.

Use LennySh. I did like Helmi's but it got old and wasen't working right with BuildOs. Lenny's latest roms runs nice. The ones before that though were horiblle.

Re: Just a few Questions abou updates

Why would you want to update the bootloader? Unless it is under v1.00 there is no reason? If you do though flash to a stock rom to update bootloader.
