I could argue otherwise. They can always learn what the commands do as
they start to need them. Maybe their point in grabbing this phone was so
they could learn linux commands (a natural consequence of tinkering) or
maybe they really like the idea of having source. Everyone has to start
somewhere, and I think it's good that he's willing to learn. Using this
phone is like linux about 10 years ago. Lots of shit doesn't work great
out of the box but improvements happen so fast one always wants to stay
close to bleeding edge everything. Tinkering is how one learns and what
makes this phone fun (for me anyway). In fact, tinkering is what
separates most of us from our fellow proprietary software users. He may
not be a power user yet, but that comes in time. Only other thing I have
to say, don't be afraid to break anything software: a change can almost
always be undone or lead you to fix the problem, and worse case scenario
just re-flash the image. Except maybe those fluid commands for flashing
the modem firmware, be more careful with those.
