    Qeustion regarding flashing a new rom..on .621?

    Hi

    I have been reading around the forums a lot, and there is a boat load of information on here. I am confused by some of it. I am wanting to flash a new rom, probably apex or vortex, but I am running 2.3.4 .621. I know how to root using the new easier methods, but do I need to first sbf to .602 or .604 before, so I can flash a rom? This thread Important Info for .621 Update! says if you take .621 you cant revert, but also says if you rooted .621 "You can effectively flash ANY Gingerbread-based ROM". I just need to know what the best coarse of action is if I want to flash apex or vortex.

    What You'll Need
    ____________________

    -Root Access
    -Know your System Version (Settings>About Phone)
    -Titanium Backup (A pro Key isn't needed but I recommend one)
    -Bookmark Backup
    -Droid 2 Bootstrap
    -3Gigs free space on your SD card (estimate).
    -A Rom of your Choice:

    --Liberty is a great rom. Especially for someone who is new to this whole process, as you can put whatever Blur you want back in!
    --MIUI is an excellent rom. It offers SUPERB customization, a beautiful interface, and awesome themes!
    --CyanogenMod is another excellent choice. It offers superb customization on top of an AOSP experience.
    --Any other Rom that is running on your System Version (Settings>About Phone).


    ____________________

    Before We Flash
    ____________________

    - Root your phone using the above link as a guide. (It's as simple as downloading a small program on your computer and plugging your phone in.)

    - Install all of the applications Above.

    - Boot into ClockworkMod Recovery using Droid 2 Bootstrap. Press: "Bootstrap Recovery" (if a SuperUser permission request pops up, accept it) and then "Reboot Recovery."

    - Navigate to the "Backup and Restore" option with your volume keys and select it with the camera button. Select Backup. Let the process run.

    - Once the Backup is complete, Navigate to the Reboot option.

    - Open "Contacts" on your phone. Press the "Options" hard-key and find the "Import/Export" option. Export your contacts to your SD card.

    - Open "Titanium Backup" and press the "Options" hard-key. Then press "Batch." Run the "Backup all User Apps" tool and wait for the process to complete.

    - Open "Backup Bookmarks" and backup your browser bookmarks.



    ____________________

    Installing Your Rom
    ____________________

    - Make Sure the Rom you want to install is using the same System Version as the one you're currently on. The Cyanogen "Official" Builds are actually still on froyo while the newest versions are on 4.5.605 or 4.5.602 (either work).

    - Put the Rom's .zip on your SD card.

    - Use Droid 2 Bootstrap to reboot into recovery again. (Bootstrap Recovery > Reboot Recovery)

    - Do a factory reset from within this menu.

    - Navigate to "Install zip from SDcard" and select your Rom. Say "yes" to the install and wait for the process to complete.

    - Reboot. Congratulations! Your phone should now boot up into the new Rom!
    and lots of stuff in my list
