    I have 4.5.588? What is the correct process to get the new update? Or is it even worth it?

    I am still pretty new at this...

    What is deodex or odex?

    Do I have to root to install them or are they just install files?

    IF I am correct, you will have to root, use GingerBreak

    Either way is easy, just ask for help and you'll get it. Easy.

    No, you lose only that which is in internal memory, such as personal settings. You should make a backup through your market app to get your apps back, or if you have titanium backup, that is a better way to go.
    Your SD card will NOT be affected at all unless you wipe it yourself.
    When you reactivate your device, it will guide you through the reload on all your apps that you d/; from the market, so you'll get those back.

    that makes more sense now...haha! I was wondering if my eyeballs were f-ing with me.
    GingerBreak should work fine, and after that, you can upgrade to the new "ROM" with no issues

    So you didn't install the rooted .588?? :O

    nah. no need to wipe anything. Just install the new system over what you've got. Do this though. go to settings -> about phone and make sure your baseband ends in .12p. If not let me know

    Then go here and download one of the first two (odexed vs deodexed) and flash right over it in Clockworkmod recovery. G2G

    This article explains Odexed vs. Deodexed VERY well and can help you decided what you want. tl;dr if you want to theme your GB install deodexed is the way to go.

    Either way, I usually go for deodex, since I never know if I'm gonna want to mess with stuff

    If you want to install some mods then I would say use the Deodexed.

    If not and you plan on running it stock until you find a nice GB rom to play with run the odexed. It will be slightly faster, though not really that noticeable. I always go with the deodexed but its a matter of choice.

    Deodexed - Must be on a Gingerbread Leak

    What does that mod do couldnt really tell.

    I like the CRT animation but what is the rotation about?

    Do I install these after the OS or do I have to do them prior?

    So put the Zip on my Flash card
    Boot into recovery install?
    then I add these custom things etc?
