    Depends on what ur using to do ur wipes. I recommend JL_cmder.
    It has 2 types - a return to factory which only wipes the data and user settings.
    - a complete wipe which does what you asked - it wipes the entir OS off ur device.

    Does that answer your question

    To add to smc's comments, a wipe essentially bricks your phone rendering the SFI useless. So until you reload a new OS onto your device you have essentially killed the SFI file.

    That is what I used, and before I install the os in DM, I looked at the details and everything was wiped except for my previous .sfi.

    That is correct, there really isn't a reason to wipe unless something has gone seriously wrong on an install or if you have OCD like me lol

    I was curious that's all, I recall a thread on another board, about the mms fix, saying to go back to .75 and
    Upgrade from there. If the previous version .sfi is still on the phone, it wouldn't be a fix? Sorry for the hijack.

    I've noticed that as well. From what i've gathered its a DM bug. All the more reason to make sure we back up our data first
