    i have a new rom and a few mods lined up to flash... my question is, during the flash process, can i flash rom and my mods all in the same session? haven't tried all together before... or, do i need to let new rom boot up once, then flash the mods... mods i'm referring to are stock keyboard, netarchy kernel...
    TIA

    i would go slow and try them out one at a time. rushing things is not very good practice. it is best to make sure that whatever you flashed is working correctly, especially a custom rom.

    I'll agree with everything that's been said here. I will say, though, that it's not a one size fits all answer. If you want to *always* be safe, flash one thing at a time, booting up in between. Some things kind of have to be flashed separately (for example, a lot of people have issues flashing something like CM and gapps in one shot), but you could probably get away with flashing a ROM and kernel in one shot. I'm not necessarily recommending this; I'm just saying that it's technically possible. I completely agree with the fact that if you flash too many things, and it doesn't boot, you won't know what broke it.
