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?
This isn't the real Caesar's Palace, is it?
What do you mean?
Did um, did Caesar live here?
Um... no.
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.
