    Anyways, yeah I side with everyone. Wiping every few upgrades. Ever since I read that apploader does it, I have been lazy to do it every time (more so backing everything up)
    Olta help me my OCD makes me wipe everytime
    You just gotta lose all your 3rd party apps one day and you would stop. I also had to talk myself into stopping. It was a slow mental healing process

    I find that if I wipe I have less issues. When I am lazy, I will just use app loader and let it do its thing. If I have issues or the hybrid is not performing as well as everyone is claiming, I go back and wipe and start over.

    As a side note, when I wipe I use CrackUtil. I go through each step of wiping device apps, wiping file system and then reseting IT Policy. It may be overkill but I have found this completely cleans the phone to the bare bones. I too used to see the theme leftovers but not with CrackUtil and this method.

    Makes me wonder if we are apt to wiping because we're so used to the fact that when reinstalling a Windows OS, wiping is the really the only thing that truly works (Damn U Redmond) At least that's what makes me want to wipe my BB before upgrading. Never leave anything to chance.

    I think I am going to try Crackutil. Never had an issue with JL but seem more like Crackutil is a more complete wipe. I will give it a shot, Thanks.
