Newbie ??? Using HACK Builder properly

Hi,
I love my prs500 and am still nervous about "improving it" by using the hackbuilder. Perhaps if this question is answered, I'll feel more comforable....

Please clarify...

Hack Builder Directions say to:
Creating Hack Files:
Once you've made your selections and adjusted your buttons, select the "Build Hacks" option from the File menu.
This will write the appropriate files into the folder labeled SDCardRoot.
Copy the CONTENTS (not the folder itself) of SDCardRoot to the root level of your SD card.
Put the card in your Reader and follow the instructions for flashing.

My question???
Do I still need to use the SDCardRoot files with UNIVERSAL FLASHER program (from another thread) or just Put the card in the reader with the SDCartRoot files and follow the instructions?

thanks.

SDCardRoot contains all the necessary files for flashing, so put the card and follow the instructions.
I'm not an expert here, but have flashed my reader many times, few times had to follow directions for un-bricking, no regrets. It's a low risk operation but end results (new icons, delete from reader, clock, direct page control, key mapping, etc.) are well worth the risk.

thanks!

I've noticed a couple of UNBRICKING instructions -- 1 had you pressing the reset up to 10 times and this http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...09&postcount=6. What method would you suggest is best? thanks again.

That link you posted is the basic method I use during development. Personally, I've never gotten to the point where I have to use the 10x reset. Note that the name of the directory may be very slightly different in the new firmware, but it will be obvious which one to use.
