Ah, yes...I understand you now--that's kind of what I thought before I started digging around and that's why I started this thread: so that I would be prepared with what I needed to know and figured I'd share it with you guys.

I'm guessing that the unsecured boot.img that we have to soft-boot is somewhat akin to having S-OFF on HTC devices and allows you to remount the other partitions as read/write.

This is all new to me, too...wish I had a device in-hand so I could post screenshots, etc. ...soon....soon .
