    AppLoader vs. DM 4.7

    I have a procedural question. As noob I have only upgraded twice. First from .75 to .122 Bell, using the AppL to delete the Vendor XML. The second upgrade was .122 to .132. Since that was a Verizon leak, I just used DM, without deleting the Vendor file - that load was much more complicated, had to restore data afterward and reboot and resend service books etc before final succes.
    Could I have used the AppLoader and is there any logic to using one over the other?

    IMHO both are the same. Some people feel that DM can be a bit buggy so they like to use the apploader instead. It's really a matter of preference as both in reality are supposed to do the same function.

    I agree.. I use Loader because I have always had trouble making DM see the OS I want to load. Loader kinda forces it.

    So you are you running the full 141 and did you load it thru 5.0 or the loader....

    if thru 5.0 i have got a question for you.....

    did it load all you're contacts and apps correctly or after the install did you have to go and manually do a restore from dm. I know i and several others had to restore after loading 141 which i have never had to do on any of the other leaks

    Harley, have you tried the the "how to backup 3rd party Apps" procedure found HERE with the DM 5.0? I read somewhere that it didn't work with the 5.0 build. You think you could confirm this? I was hesitant to upgrade to it because of that. Thanks.
