What can go wrong when flashing an unstable Android OS onto a phone? Is there an easy way to reset the phone if something goes wrong? Has anyone out there had experience flashing Android OS?
Why would I want to flash Gingerbread 2.3.3 aka Leaky onto my Samsung Epic 4G?
One benefit that I can see is that users of the Epic will be able to test their applications on > Froyo 2.2.1, which is currently the stable release for the phone.
EDIT: Also, what happens when the device wants to update again, say 2.3.4 is flashed onto the phone, and then Sprint finally releases a stable 2.3.4 in 2013. Assuming I still have this phone then, will it upgrade gracefully from the flashed ROM?
