Default OS Upgrade question

Please Login to Remove!

I just spent the last two weeks tweaking the BOLD just how I like it. Will I lose all my themes, settings and third party software by performing an OS upgrade?

No you will not. I would make sure you perform a backup first. Even though the upgrade process will take one, it's better to be sure you have a solid backup before starting.

You will likely need to re-input any license keys for your 3rd party apps however.

You should do a backup prior to doing an OS upgrade anyway for safety. BUT, the apploader will do a backup while performing an OS upgrade. All your themes and third party apps will still be there unless they are not compatible with the newer OS which is highly unlikely.

Thanks for the speedy replies. I'd be pissed if I had to start over with all the tweaks.
