  4. When you first see the SDG logo screen, quickly press the Up button 3 times to enter the reflashing screen.
  5. Connect the device to the computer (which is now booted from the CD) via USB cable.
  6. Flashing will start automatically (you'll see a progress indicator and status messages on the device screen).
  7. The device will reboot when flashing is complete.

Note: SDG Android (AOSP) devices running Android 2.1 release "r2_p0" or later or Android 2.3 r1 or later have a built-in "Check for updates" option in Settings > About phone that allows OTA (over-the-air) updating to the latest release.
