    Some would say yes some say no. When I install an OS I wipe but that's just my OCD. What I found to be more effective in reducing memory leak is manually adding 3rd party apps and contacts instead of through DM or Loader.exe. The more OS's you install the more chances that a directory has been corrupted which will lead to memory leak. I know it's pain to do but IMO it has reduced memory leak. Of the course the best thing you can do to prevent memory leak is to not install themes. Just my two cents.

    I feel the same way. I'm just not sure if JLCmdr is really and thoroughly wiping my phone. I wish I knew of one that did. I also agree by constantly using a backup to restore all the 3rd party apps isn't good either but as far as the phonebook, I can't enter over 300 contacts everytime I load a new OS.
    Especially the way we have been doing that. LOL

    Hey Striker....
    If you ever get the chance and you want to wipe your device, try the BB Swiss Army Knife. Very user friendly.

    Use mirror two.

    I've used it myself over the last weekend. No sweat. Got the 507 error on my device like it should.

    Regards,
    ~Michael~

    I agree I think the nice think about it is it doesn't have the DOS interface that scares a lot of people.
