Default Re: leaked for 9700

To those talking about "full wipe", etc. There is NO reason to do that. The loader process does a full wipe no matter what you check during the loader process. It makes no difference if you make the backup during the loader process or not, its the same.

Just foillow the instructions posted above. The instructions were written for the simplest and most trouble-free method of upgrading an OS. Recommendtions of the "full wipe" or NOT necessary. If you watch closely during the loader process you'll see your device momentarily show the 507 error. That means it wiped.

So please, quit with all the different instructions that are not necessary. Also, "shrinking" an OS may be beneficial but I don't recommend it for just anyone. You need to know what you're doing as removing a cod may render the device unusable and you'll have to start over with a full wipe and reinstall.
