    Re: Flashing phones

    No, I don't think it is legal. The advantages are usually the original Samsung firmware (faster) and various other bits and pieces such as new menu icons, new startup/shutdown animations etc...

    I don't personally see the point in flashing to be honest. I mean, even if your phone IS branded then it's not that bigger deal - unless they disable the mp3 ringtone feature or something. You also need the right cables, software, knowledge and the rest.

    My advice: Don't try it unless you REALLY know what your doing. Like you said, many people have messed up their phones by doing this. That's because they sometimes don't have a clue as to what they're supposed to be doing.

    Your phone makes calls right? So enjoy it as it is and don't risk it all for a lousy flash... .
