    How about Dalvik cache? A little technical, but should be covered.

    I searched the net for ten minutes on FFC when it hit me (duh)
    USB debugging is only for screen shots?

    I'm a total Android newbie, and while the dictionary is good, it's only good to a point. What exactly is Froyo? There isn't a definition, just a link to the news about Froyo, and if you don't understand the term to begin with the links don't do much good. Anyone know the term 'grok'? I don't grok Froyo.

    And you guys should make this an app, like really. That would be an awesome bit of information to have in the palm of one's hand.

    Default Hero

    First off, I know that there was a European Hero, and I know that the Eris is Verizon's version of the Hero.

    You describe the Eris as the US version of the Hero.
    You describe the Hero as a phone released by Verizon as the Eris, also known as the G2.

    I know you guys know that the Hero was released by Sprint, before Verizon released the Eris. Umm, and I never heard anyone refer to either of them as the G2. Youknow, that flimsy-hinged phone, missing half its memory that just came out? haha sorry, couldn't resist.

    Didn't really tell me what a kernel and ROM really are, but thanks for the basic definition. Doesn't help a clueless noob like me though.

    Default Another Acronym

    I just read an article about titled Motorola Droid 2 SBF Released for 2.3.20 Update. I'm not on Verizon, so really don't follow the Droid stuff that closely, but SBF was something that I hadn't heard of. The article seems to take the stance that if you know about modding and such, then you know what the SBF is. Well, I know about modding my MyTouch and Vibrant, but don't know what the SBF is.

    Would be nice to find out what it is and include it in the dictionary.

    I think this dictionary is a great thing for the Android community.

    Great Job!

    I came on here to ask for "Nandroid" to be added and saw that two other people have asked for the same thing. Do we have to pester you people before you add something?

    Seriously, though, I am beginning to doubt that anyone responsible for the dictionary actually reads this thread.

    Anyone know how to alter the dictionary?

    I know this post is more about a glossery of terms. Any help is appreciated

    Couple of edits - maybe this should be a wiki instead?

    Koush is the maker of Clockwork Recovery, not Clockwork.

    Bootloader definition needs to be blown out - elaborate on difference between recovery and fastboot modes. I think the term "low level" is misleading - I don't think of flashing a radio from fastboot as flashing a "low level" component on a scale of importance and risk.

    APP2SD is now official. Apps2Ext is the unofficial version.

    New definitions for:

    Apps2Ext
    Stock
    Brick
    Radio (software)
    Nandroid
    S-ON/S-OFF on newer phones
    Super CID

    Default plrprivatelabelrights.com

    plrprivatelabelrights.com

    The price of PLR Reports all have to do with the quality of the PLR Reports. Most of the time PLR Reports are used for spamming and marketing otherwise called web traffic. People can take the PLR reports and set them with an assigned affiliate link, so that when someone is browsing for a product the will click it thinking it is something that it is not. They can also be used as a teaser to make some one buy a product. The drive for the sell and resell of PLR Reports is the fact that unique ideas are hard to come by, so someone will buy someone Elses product and change it a little to resell it.
