Then, you use loader.exe to install the new OS. The user can either selectively restore, or restore the entire file, assuming they have backed it up prior to the full wipe. Your method won't wipe the device fully, so I have seen anyway.
for a basic user that is looking to remove everything down to basics and start fresh it would work for there needs, as you have explained the Javaloader too I would consider more of a power user tool. But thanks again for clarifying for me, and everyone else
