    Ok, so I'm a newbie to the whole Android phone thing. I've got a BH2, which after reading several posts here I see a HUGE dislike of the phone. I personally don't have issues with it at all. But I keep seeing where people are flashing or rooting their phones and I have read the threads where the ROMs are located.

    However, this is completely and totally new to me, and I wanted to know if there was a step-by-step instruction for flashing a ROM?

    Sorry if this is sounds so newb like, but it is lol

    except I wouldnt recommend warheads because it is out of date, the 1.6 tweaked roms are the ones that I'd go with because they are based off of the 1.6 update, or if you dont need vibrate go with a galaxy rom

    Windows is blocking the drivers from loading because they are not signed. This is an issue with 64bit versions of Windows Vista and 7.

    Reboot your computer. As soon as it starts the boot process tap F8. This will bring up the Windows startup options. Select "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement" and then install the drivers when Window's comes up.

    You will have to select that option every time you wish to use the ADB connection with the phone.

    The USB Mass Storage function of the phone will always work whether you set this or not.

    then from there go to the device manager and click on unknown devices, search on your computer and select the folder where you have the drivers installed.

    Ok, I'm getting ready to flash the rom this morning. There is a stock 1.5 somewhere if I need to convert back ya?

    Slight problem...pressing F8 doesn't take me to the windows start up menu. It takes me to the boot menu and what device I want to boot from.

    yes there is a 1.5 on here under Updated roms list.

    You were pressing f8 at the time to get into your bios, you need to press it as windows is booting up. Confusing i know

    you could just download all the files you need and go to a library and plug in your phone and flash that way.
