    Does restore affect the OS?

    When I load a new OS then run a restore, is the new OS affected?

    the restore will only restore your personal info such as messages, sms, etc. and it does not affect the OS in any way

    Welcome to BlackberryOS ryano

    I have a strong belief that a full restore does degrade your newly installed OS. That is why on the last restore I did I just chose contacts, messages and few others and I noticed a huge difference in performance. When you back up your phone you are also backing up any corrupted files (if you have any) as well theme settings and so on.

    Bryan and Jason ... Are you reinstalling all of your 3rd party apps as well or restoring those?

    I have been restoring them from my backup file. But I am going to try re downloading them from scratch on this next go around.

    I have even read people suggesting (that's if you are having issues), then when you wipe fresh, then install the OS...to sync contacts/messages, etc via outlook and then simply reconfigure all setting manually...this way you are truly getting a fresh start.

    Also, before wiping to do a security wipe

    What she said! I always do a security wipe and am planning on setting back up manually to see what comes of that.

    It does affect the OS, specially the 3rd party apps, I always download my apps back to the phone and just restore bbm contacts and that's it...
