Hey guys. I'm a bit noob at this.
I've followed this tutorial to install a custom rom and have successfully installed Lightning




Even though I'm happy with Lighting, I'd like to do a fresh install and try out some other roms before settling on one. So i have some questions If someone knows the answer to I'd be very thankful.

1. Do I need to do everything again, or can I just copy the rom zip to sd card, turn off phone, start into recovery, and install the rom?

2. If I decide on unlocking the bootloader officially (still need the code though), what exactly do I need to do, considering I've already unlocked it using that .exe on the tutorial above)
3. Will it difficult the task of unlocking the booloader officially if I'm on a CM rom ? I'd love to try one of those.

Thank you for your time, and I apologize if this has been answered before.

To officially unlock the boot Loader you need the stock (Locked) boot loader.

You can get this by flashing a stock ROM ( update.app ) or by flashing a stock based ROM and then flashing the stock ( locked ) boot loader. There are threds on this forum on how to go about doing this.

Hope this helps.
