    *** HELP - Backup and Restore ***

    OK, I know I am a newbie, but I have been a lurker for some time now....so yea, I know what I am doing for the most part. Kick ass website by the way.

    My battery life is killing me, I haven't seen what the hybrid V3 does yet, but for the other recent versions. .114, .113, .114 Hybrids, etc., my battery will drain in a matter of hours, yes, hours! I have checked all the running applications and deleted all the the fab 5 and everything seems to be running fine. I am getting 37.43mb of free memory after a battery pull, but for some reason my battery is killing me!

    So......I know how to backup my phone, obviously with the DM like I always do before an upgrade. Correct?

    I want to completely wipe my storm using CrackUtil. Once I have done that, I restore my phone with the DM correct?

    I have read a lot of info on this and I believe I am doing it correctly, but I just wanted to make sure. I HAVE to have my storm, not just because it's my crack, but I also have to have it for work and I don't wanna have a new paper weight.

    Thanks for all the help and recommendations in advance! I greatly appreciate it!

    I would use JLCmder though to wipe...but that a personal opinion.

    I'm gonna wipe it. Even with Hybrid V3, my batteries are only lasting me 4 hours! WTF?!?!?!?

    I can also restore my phone with the loader.exe too, correct? I don't have to use DM. Thanks!

    4 hours wow, whats running on your phone.
    And, no, you can restore with both DM and apploader.I would suggest if you wipe, to install your original OS first that came with your phone.

    i would just back it up, wipe and then when you install only check off the things you will use.
