Android - Operating System for smartphones and tablets, based on Linux, built by Google, similar to Windows on PC.
- Short for Android Open Source Project. The open-sourced code from
which individuals can build new distributions of Android.
APK - An Android executable file, similar to the .exe file in Windows. Most programs will install with a .apk file.
Baseband - System of a smartphone, that controls the cellular radio systems(GSM, 3G, HSDPA etc).
- Controls the booting process, makes sure that you will access User
Interface. These programs tell the Android device how to start up, and
are critical to its functionality.
Build.prop - A plain text
file which contains environmental variables for the system to use during
operation. Can be hacked to fake a different model for increased
functionality, among many other operations.
BusyBox - Command
line bridge, used to give commands to Android system. You will need app
to send commands, it will use BusyBox to send the commands.
Brick - A phone, that you paid a lot for and now you can use it as brick, because it doesn't start up.
Recovery - A specific program, that is used before booting to Android.
Allows the user to make full backup of system and install custom ROMs,
CM - Short for CyanogenMod. CyanogenMod is an
Android build built from the Android Open Source Project, and its builds
are usable on multiple different Android Devices.
Dalvik Cache -
The collection of program information stored for use by the DALVIK
program. This can be cleared from the RECOVERY menu to resolve issues
with the Android OS.
Deodexed - Removing the .odex files from an
APK file. The .odex files contain a list of dependencies for the
associated file, and if something changes, the .odex (and similarly, the
associated file) not longer function correctly.
Downgrade - A job, that you have to do, when you want to get from newer firmware to older firmware.
Reset - This will remove all user customizations in the Android OS,
returning it to a factory state. Note: This will not wipe the Internal
Fastboot - Command Line Tool to edit Android filesystem. Unlike flashmode, this allows flashing unsigned partition images.
FC - Short for FORCE CLOSE. See FORCE CLOSE.
- The act of writing code to the Android device. ROMs, MODEMs, KERNELs,
and BOOTLOADERs can all be flashed. Independent from, and having
nothing to do with, Adobe's Flash product.
Flashmode - Phone mode, where you can freely flash any firmware to your phone via WotanServer or Flashtool.
Close - When a program on the Android device becomes unstable, the
DALVIK program will force it to terminate to prevent further system
GB/Gingerbread - Android 2.3 version, codename Gingerbread, mostly used shortly as GB.
- A program that interacts with the device hardware to increase or
decrease the processor's clock speed (e.g. at low usage, it will set the
processor speed to 400 MHz, but as usage increases, it would scale up
to 1000 MHz).
HSUPA/HSDPA - Short for High Speed (Up/Down) Packet
Access. This is 3G+, and is the Android device's internet speed level
between 3G and 4G.
ICS/Ice Cream Sandwich - Android 4.0 version, codename Ice Cream Sandwich, mostly used shortly as ICS.

(Samsung), Launcher Pro, ADW Launcher, and Go Launcher.
Checksum - A 32-digit (128-bit) hash number generated by a cryptographic
program to ensure that a downloaded file matches the original file. The
original file is run through the MD5 generator program, which creates
the 32-bit number. This number is checked against the md5 number created
with the file the end user receives to ensure file integrity.
Backup - A complete system image backup of the Android device except
for the MODEM and KERNEL. Can be accessed from CWM.
OTA/Over The Air - Updating your phone firmware directly from your phone via 3G or WiFi connection.
- Setting the processor's clock speed to run faster than its default
setting, i.e. 1200 MHz (1.2 GHz) vs 1000 MHz (1.0 GHz).
Random Access Memory, data storage area, where are currently in use apps
and services. It is used, because it has really high data transfer rate
compared to other possibilities(SDcard, hard disks etc).
Read Only Memory, data storage, where the data can only be read by
system itself. It includes all data to start the Android. Many
developers edit this ROM to change Android interface.
Process, during which user gets access to Android system partition and
files, giving the possibility to edit Android.
SEUS - Sony Ericsson Update Service, can be used in some cases to get back to newest stock firmware.
Undervolting - Setting the voltage levels drawn by the Android device to a lower level to reduce overall battery usage.
WotanServer - A paid application, which can be used to flash any stock firmware version with kernel to your phone.
