    Can someone please tell me what SPL's are and what they can be used for.

    I've heard they have something to do with allowing bigger custom roms

    Basically a backup loader for programs, i'm not 100% specific how they work exactly but i'd assume if your program loader is busy/error the processor will go to the 'secondary program loader. this is speculative so take the description with a pinch of salt

    I don't know what they are, but I think SPLs are way beyond what the average user (or even average custom ROM user) needs to know about.

    So you'd probably get a better explaination from the MoDaCo or xda forums.
