    Back in school, I learned to NOT cite Wikipedia, but this seems accurate enough:

    Short Message Service - SMS - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    O wait . . . you were just pointing out the omission. Nice find!

    I have been trying to find out what a nandroid is as well. bc everyone says that you need to make a nandroid before you do anything. I figure its a back-up or some kind of recovery file for your android phone. but no one talks about how to create one?

    You need a custom recovery on your phone one of the most common being clockworkmod recovery . When in recovery scroll down to backup/restores . This is where a nandroid is made. Please do alot of research on your particular device before installing a recovery. Depending on your device you may need root access to make such a modification

    What's OG? I've seen in a number of forum posts, usually as a prefix to a particular phone model, as in "I bought an OG EVO".

    OG means "original gangsta" in slang / rap lingo. An OG Evo is probably the original Evo - the first of its kind.

    If you're new to Android (and even if you aren't), you'll quickly discover that there are a ton of terms to keep up with. And to that end we've worked up the official Android Central Android Dictionary. Pretty self-explanatory, eh?

    You can check out the Android Dictionary here.

    That said, we're bound to be missing something. If so, sing out in this thread and we'll get it added.

    It's just a reference to the first iteration of a particular phone model. OG just refers to the first model, or original model.

    mirror
    in terms of hosting files, a 'mirror' is a new source for the file - hosted on a separate server than the main download source.

    so, a hot file may be available via download link ABC.
    and, also available at mirror link #1, mirror link #2, etc.

    popular files attract a lot of downloads. in those cases, the files need to be hosted elsewhere to lighten the load on the main server.

    ---

    In case you were referring to Mirror Mode, I noticed this in a Google search:

    "It (the Droid Bionic) would also have another attractive feature called “Mirror Mode”. This would enable “simultaneous streaming of video to the TV and on the device.”
