    So, what apps are you guys running? Are you running any that have been known to be resource hogs, such as Weatherberry or Meterberry?

    you are correct it does not totally wipe out the device, just your data, all the apps, and all programs. The core parts remains in place and that is why it says "update" whereas everything else is "install"

    Honestly I wouldnt wipe unless you had to, there is so much debate as to which is better wipe or just load over an OS, if you are not having problems dont make any, it's not a hard process to wipe using JLCmdr
    But read and watch this first

    But if you do read the post on backing up your apps
    http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/b...arty-apps.html
    and have the os of choice on DM ready to reinstall.


    It's not that it's hard to do but if you dont need to dont. just my opinion

    Okay, here's the path I finally chose...

    I went all the way back to the official release version of .75, downloaded from the VZW web site. Ran it for a couple days. I was surprised to see that I would have > 32mb free app memory after reboots/battery pulls. Battery life was extremely good, and app memory reclamation was very good, staying between 25-30mb and even remaining > 30mb throughout the day while holstered.

    I installed .114 leak this morning, and then followed that up with .114 v3.5. I'll keep an eye on it until the v4 release.

    Thanks everyone for all your help!

    I always do a clean wipe and then a fresh install.

    Every time I just do a install I end up with error messages when I do a battery pull, some language java message.

    And wiping with jlcommander is not as horrific as it people make it out to be.
