    Default Is CFW safe for my phone?

    Hello there modders, I just got my 5800 for about a month now. No mods done yet. Im just wondering, if these Cooked/Custom firmware have any risk of damaging the phone. And if this happen, what should i do. If there's nothing to be afraid of, i would like to try one of these updates, but i dont know how. Please do direct me to any topics for newbies regarding cooked firmware and how to use it. And the risk of using it.

    Thank you.

    Regards,
    Aaron

    when u flash your phone with j.a.f. it is possible that after this your phone doesn´t start anymore. but normally you can flash ist again with j.a.f using the dead-phone mode. i have never heard of anybody who completely brick his phone...

    to know how to flash a cfw you have to take yourself some time and read and try. everyone of us had the problem that we do not know how to cook from birth on :-)
    we all had to try and try and try..

    just search the forum for a tutorial how to use j.a.f & navifirm. the rest is written in countless threads here in this GREAT forum!

    greetings from germany

    You can try my CFW, with full information, apps, and it's also faster than original one (http://forum.dailymobile.net/index.php/board,78.0.html). It's safe if it was tested before. It can kill your phone (not mine, it was tested) if it exceeds capacity. But, if not, is as safe as update.

    You can flash phone by this way:

    Tick also Normal Mode


    Cheers!
