    To wipe...or not to wipe...

    ...that is the question

    I almost always wipe my phone before I change any OS. I read from those who believe in it....and those who think it's unnecessary. I want to take advantage of the wealth of knowledge here, and get your opinion and why.

    I have read that when you run apploader, it wipes your phone after backing everything up for you. If that is so, then why would you need to wipe your phone?

    Thanks ahead of time for sharing.

    I only wipe when issues arise. Otherwise I never wipe. Sometimes I wiped and had more issues, so ended up going back to .75 and then loading over. Its been said that loader wipes just the same way when it loads.

    OK...like I said...I read that apploader does the same thing. Thanks for confirming that you've read that too.

    I have done it both ways several times and never had any issues but I have noticed that jlcmder does not completely wipe everything. I run the crystal clear theme and the last time I did a wipe while it was rebooting I saw the clock from the theme, not the normal spinning clock.

    This is enlightening...because I too have the Crystal theme and after wiping, and had the same thing...made me wonder also.:hmmm:

    Orio I hope you don't mind but I added a poll as I think that would help others
