Default Question about wireless upgrade?

Please Login to Remove!

If I want to do a wireless update, is it the process as running loader.exe; I mean, does it back up everything on the device and then restore, or does it reset it completely. Also, will it remove my third party apps?

I didn't think so.

No, it's actually nothing like running loader.exe.
Wireless updates are "delta" packages. They only contain a subset of the whole OS.
Your device is not backed up, wiped and restored as part of the process.
Everything will remain intact.
