    Ok guys, since you're sorta on the subject I want here, quick question. Is it absolutely necessary to wipe the phone before loading 230? I'm currently on a 167/5.0 hybrid.

    I was all over all the latest OS leaks prior to the 5.0 builds. Not wanting to take the 5.0 plunge until most of the stuff was ironed out, I started to go down the road of Lyricidal's hybrids (WHICH ROCK BTW!!). But with 230 I think I'm finally convinced it's functional enough to go with it. I'm perfectly capable of wiping with either JL or BBSAK, but the non wipe where the loader puts everything including the third party apps back for you is just sooooo much easier, and I find I loose less this way. (Please don't flame, I'm all about ease of upgrade).

    Thoughts?

    FLAMING DOES NOT EXIST HERE!!!

    and you dont have to wipe its suggested, just as a precaution, that way if there are any corrupt files on your phone they are all cleared before you load the new os and find a large problem

    Haha, thanks. Maybe I'm used to the "other" boards. Even though I have just a few posts I've been hanging around here for a while and love this forum.

    I'm gonna try the non-wipe way first for the heck of it. If it acts funky I'll wipe it down to nothing and start again over the weekend. Doesn't bother me to do it, but I like avoiding it if I can.

    O u didn't know?!?! Each account is automatically coated with an Anti-flaming gel. (i finally got to use the BBOS smiley :1244:..ya ya it's been out for a while lol)

    As for the wipe, BBSAK I hear can do full 3rd party back up. I still use JL_cmder just cause all my 3rd party apps r like Google maps, viigo so it's easy to just install again. I think i might b one of the few that still use JL lol
