I have read a few different ways to flash the phone most are done on the phone and some with Odin
Can I not use Odin for all flashes
As I understand it certain kernels go with certain roms. I found a web page with roms and one with kernels how do you know what two to pair up
Is a stock rom both a rom and a kernel

The last rom and only rom Ive used was DarkyRom10.2resurrection after the flash my modem didn’t work very well until I used Odin to flash another modem.bin. Can I open a rom.zip before flashing and substitute my modem.bin for the one in the rom file before I flash that rom. I have read where some are digitally signed and when changed they will not work
Im using Titanium for backup when I flash either a rom or a kernel will I be able to restore using Titanium restore on either that new rom or kernel
And last when the phone is a rooted phone do I still have to unlock the phone before I can use it with another service provider

Ok first of..lots of questions..I love it:D
-Second and more imporantly youshould find a rom package that contain the rom,kernel and modem all in one so when you go to flash via odin you have all the files needed.

-A stock rom CONTAINS a rom and kernel.

-Same here, when i flashed darky 9.5 i almost crapped my pants because my phone didnt get service..did a bit of research and found the modem i need for my phone (Bell,Canada) and flashed it through CWM and it worked perfect!(check my sig for a link to modems)

-Yes you should be able to restore(I personally never bothered)

-Yes, you phone does need to be unlocked. Rooting gives you access to do this i believe.

There you go! any more questions just ask:)
