Frequently asked questions
Q: Does it matter?
A: Yes, flashing a ROM for one type on the other type will end up with a non-booting phone.
Q: Can I brick my phone if I flash the wrong version?
A: Propably not, flashing the correct ROM should bring it back to life.
Q: What if I do a TPT install, can I brick it then?
A: No one have tried asfaik, you either end up with a fully working Gen1 phone or an expensive paperweight. Either way there will be no way back unless we get our hands on a TPT install for Gen2 phones.
Q: WTF is a "pigfish"?
A: It's the evil cousin of the crocoduck.
