    If you do the reg hack what you get is the generic firmware direct from Samsung as it bypasses your carrier saving you from getting their splash screens and bloatware etc.

    Before you do any updates with the SGS, I would test the 3 button recovery mode and if it doesn't work then get it working before putting your phone anywhere near a pc to update the firmware just in case it shits itself during an upgrade.

    I think some early phones were missing boot up files and they were bricking themselves on updates. If you test the 3 button method first and it works then you will be fine. Once in the menu via the 3 button method just click reboot and it will just turn the phone back on again as if its just been turned off and wont make any changes to it.

    The point is that you really want that 3 button mode to be available. Even if you never root it or flash it outside of the official updates you want this mode available. My brand new S corrupted out of the blue and if I had not been able to factory reset from recovery mode I would have had a permanent brick.
    Test it and if it works then forget about it but if not then be nervous.. :cool:

    I think you are confusing that with something that happens out of your control. It is just a way to turn on for maintenance.
    Turn the phone off, hold Volume Up/Home/Power buttons, when you see the Galaxy logo let go of the Power button and hold the others until you get to the Recovery mode. There you can factory reset the phone, apply an update, and a few other things or just reboot. If you can't get into that mode then you have a broken phone. If you got yours recently then it should work, if you have an older one that doesn't then take it back for a fixed one.
