lokhor: Ok I'm ready to take the Gingerbread plunge. How do I flash the JVH bootloaders?
also I'm thinking of going for Juwe's JVH + DamianGTO Kernel
You can flash GB bootloaders separately I think but it'd be safer and easier to go here : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1011901 and download stock JVH with bootloaders, then install CF Root 3.2 with odin then flash Juwe's through CWM. And when you first install it you may get bootloops in which you must flash CF Root 3.2 with Odin again- hopefully Juwe fixed that issue. Take note that JVB stuff isn't compatible with JVH fully(I installed a JVB theme which caused booty loops).
