    unlocking (to be able to use any SIM card) and debranding (to replace the current software) are two different things.

    what do you want to do?

    This is for SIM unlocking.

    HBOOT is the boot loader. It is what boots android or recovery up. All you have to do is boot into it like the instructions say. You dont need to know what s-off is as you dont need it.

    Burning an ISO is a computer term. .ISO files are CD image files. You need to use something like roxio or nero etc to burn the iso to disk (it has to be done as a specific burn as iso option, not just copied to disk).

    Obviously its not really for CDMA deires (no sim card).
