So, what apps are you guys running? Are you running any that have been known to be resource hogs, such as Weatherberry or Meterberry?
here is a question , i know a while back someone with good knowledge actually said wiping your device doesnt actually totally wipe everything off of it ? is that true ?
how can i wipe my device? also, why is it necessary to wipe a device?

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

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

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.
