    Whats the best most reliable method of flashing a new HBOOT?
    standard Fastboot?
    Android flasher as recommended on SUroots guide?
    Fastboot commander?
    Anything special I need to do to go from Oxygen R2 to dGB?

    cheers

    android flasher is mentioned in the guide for people that struggle with fastboot commands although fastboot is very easy.

    Fastboot is recommended as there is no gui software layer to cause a problem

    never used fastbootcommander

    personally i would do the following

    make backup of rom, reboot to fastboot
    fastboot erase cache
    fastboot erase system
    fastboot reboot bootloader
    fastboot flash hboot nameofhboot.img
    fastboot reboot bootloader
    go to recovery, restore backup

    Cheers Rasta, I was going to use fastboot, just seen the android flasher in the guide so though I'd ask.
    Fastboot it is ;)

    Done
    just for reference if anyone uses the commands above, the reboot bootloader has a hyphen in it:
    fastboot erase cache
    fastboot erase system
    fastboot reboot bootloader
    fastboot flash hboot nameofhboot.img
    fastboot reboot-bootloader
    go to recovery, restore backup

    ;)

    Android flasher is just a gui for fastboot

    Better to start a new thread, as this sounds unrelated to this one. And give us as much information as you can - I'm not sure from what you've said here what your problem is or what the state of your phone is.
