    This. And yes, loader does wipe the phone when it does an install. Should really only need a wipe if you're trying to re-install the same OS on a phone again.

    I am wondering if I should try a wipe for my phone problem? How does one go about doing that and what happens with all the apps, games and music I have put on my Storm? Is it a difficult process?

    If you're speaking of the headset issue you have with .122 installed on a new phone provided to you by Mannitoba Tel Service, I would recommend returning the device and insisting on a new one. From previous discussions, it sounds like you have a defective headphone jack in your device. And they should be able to copy everything you've added to your phone; contacts, media etc. to your new device.

    It's not difficult at all Tamara As long as you back up your phone through DM and your 3rd party apps it is a pretty painless process

    You of course back up your phone through DM's backup options


    Then back up your 3rd party apps following this

    Then wipe with JL
    Here is link on how to do it with JL

    Nice Toy I forgot about the headset issue I agree with Toy 100% on his statement

    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.
    OK used Crackutil for the first time (usually use JL) and I don't like it LOL. I had to wipe it 3 times to get it to work, and each time the theme skinned clock was there. I ended up having to choose wipe applications first then wipe device very strange?

    That's the exact reason I use JL. It's simple, easy and effective. It's a no frills application but it does the job every time.
