New and need help

Hi, i'm new to all of this. I'm confused as to what all the lingo means "rom" "cab" ect. I don't know what i need to access certain content on my phone or what the sense 6.5 stuff means. I've been assuming on most of this stuff, but i figure it's time i asked the pros what to do.

cab - installer comparable to exe

ROM - you 'flash' ROMs to get different OS versions, graphics, pre loaded apps, sounds, themes, etc

unlock - making it so your device can Flash Custom Roms

Flash - the process for replacing ROMs or Radios

Sense - an HTC innovation.. heavily skinned "shell" for winMO 6.5

anything else?

Re: New and need help

jaja i think i know who u are. bout time u posted on here,ull learn everything soon enough and i recommend that u stay on the stock sprint 6.5 rom for the entire 1st month of having the tp2 (if u can jaja) so u can get a feel for the device and how problematic the stock rom (factory os) can be. then u will want to flash (install) a different rom (newer os)
