    "hacking" actually means programming or figuring out a neat trick on some randomly complicated system or computer programming. "cracking" is the attempting to circumvent digital security our any other method of gaining illegal access to systems/information. (per "The Jargon File", currently maintained by Eric S. Raymond.)

    Hmm, I was actually looking for a lingo list, I started making my own and then did a Google search for some help and came across this. I was actually looking in the FAQ area. *hint hint* I don't know if it should be but I think there might be other people like me looking for this in the FAQ area....

    Could someone define the acronym "OTA" and possibly add it to the glossary. I've seen it used commonly but can't quite figure out the definition. Thanks!

    does that sound about right? LOL jk..

    ok how about add some of the files and what they do, such as kousch's recovery, the bootstrapping program, hijack etc... maybe later we can get a guide together on how to go from stock driod to insane godliness step by step. (ill write it if i can get some help doing it to mine lol)
    this sounds like it would be great, and this is a great thread and fourm, I must admitt I'm still not sure what you're talking about.
    This isn't you're fault obvisiously. I'd like to try to attain these benifits but sounds risky from what i have been reading trying to get informed.
