Sorry for not responding before now, just had a very busy holiday break.

I really appreciate your staying in touch on here.

Anyway, to get back to my question, I was looking for some resources to understand the terminology and processes for doing the firmware updates and mods. I've read thru they forums, and there seems to be a bit here, a suggestion there, and a hint or two scattered about.

As for the contact transefer, I saw the Google synch capability. Just didn't want to learn one more thing to keep my contacts in line. I was able to get the contacts transferred using the micro-SD card.

And, FWIW, the firmware upgrade has been working great! No hiccups at all.

Hmm, an all in one for terminology and definitions... Maybe the Android a-z dictionary on Android central. There may be one here, as well (I apologize to the mods and creators of this great forum for referring to links outside of this site. I'm simply not up to speed on all of the ins and outs here. I will make it apoint to peruse here and get up to speed.). Sometime this weekend, I'll see if I can make a comprehensive post on definitions of terms, and how all this junk interacts.
As for Google sync, all you need to do is go to settings/accounts and sync. Then go to your primary gmail account, and make sure 'contacts' is checked. From there on, anytime you have to reset your phone, your contacts will come back as soon as you enter that gmail account. In my experience, Google sync is a lot less problematic than backup assistant.
