    i did have one suggestion about the security wipe ... if during loader you change options to "not backup and restore" would that make you able to bypass that step? that is what i normally do to save the step and reboot, but just curious if this would do the same thing or if anyone else did it that way. i'm always looking for ways to do things better so if the security wipe is the better option i will add that into the routine.
    Actually no, it will not bypass that step....as you will just lose your personal info/messages and settings. A security wipe gets rid of corrupt traces of OS. I strongly recommend doing it in the following sequence:

    Back up
    Wipe with BBSAK or JL
    Load OS
    Security wipe
    Restore all

    Thanks everyone! That was one of my first times actually using BBSAK, so I didn't know that it deleted the vendor file for you. But it's still good to show the manual method.

    "How To" Logo looks fantastic. Video is in good condition and does a good job explaining how to back up your device. Excellent!!

    Nice job with the videos, very nicely done. All play on my computer with no problems.

    One question though, if you would please.

    I have watched all three several times and so I think I get the procedure. One thing that I have a question about is Part 3 3rd part apps. Is this not covered in part 2? It seems like if you follow part 1 then continue with part 2, you are done when it ends.

    Maybe the part 3 3rd party apps should not read part 3, just specifically 3rd party apps. Not picking, just kind of confusing for us noobs.

    Or, am I missing something? If so, please clue me in. Thanks, Chris.

    You can do it either way. It sort of depends on your personal preference. Some people don't like to restore their apps at the same time they load an OS.
