    If you would like to preserve data when flashing autoloaders, i.e. upgrade without reset your phone to factory default, follow this:
    Open flashall script and comment out two lines that run below commands:
    fastboot.exe oem securewipe
    flash userdata %IMG%\userdata.img

    Then run flashall script as usual.

    Above are all tested on my phone without problem.

    Ok, as a decade long BB user and just recently (last month) moving to a Priv via an Assurion insurance replacement for my ATT Passport, I am a little unsure about whether I can upgrade my OS or not. The phone was provided by Assurion insurance since my Passport was damaged. I have all of the ATT bloatware on it, though disabled. I am still under contract for this phone so it is not unlocked, as far as I know.

    I am currently on build #AAG873 , which as far as I can tell, is the MM OS. People keep talking about patches and upgrades, but when I check for software updates it says I have the latest. Am I able to autoload a higher build onto this phone or do I HAVE to wait for ATT to push it? Also, the Priv cannot be rooted, correct? Not that I would want to, but just inquiring.

    It cannot be rooted, and yes, you can (must) use the autoloader specific to the AT&T variant.

    I tried that method to update my Verizon Priv when I had not received MM as soon as some others. It did NOT work for me. And it bricked my Priv - flashing blue led. I then had to use the regular Autoloader file (un-edited) and so all my data was wiped anyway. Maybe others have used it successfully. I was not so lucky.

    Marshmallow has been out of Beta for a long time. ....

    Unless you are already in the Beta program, non of the stuff you mentioned will make any difference.
    If there is an autoloader available to you for your device, and you are not a current Beta tester, your'e good to go. ...

    I am a current Beta tester, or at least I was. That was how I received marshmallow early.

    Should I remove myself out of beta, do a "factory data reset," or an autoloader?

    Lately it's been horrible, 7am 100 % then at 11am, 68%.


    Thanks

    Would doing a Factory Data reset through the phone settings be adequate if you were to sell the phone? Or is the autoloader method preferred?

    I've been having some trouble finding the exact differences between doing a Factory Data reset and using the Autoloaders.

    AFAICT they should pretty much do the same thing, although factory wiping doesn't change the OS version the same way upgrading with an autoloader does.

    PS, if you're selling, make sure to deactivate the anti-theft.

    Is the anti theft disabled through the settings on the phone or through the Google account settings online?

    Google account. Scrubbing that off the phone should disable factory reset prevention.

    I figured the culprit. After having deleting Android Wear and Asus ZenWatch, I a noticed significant battery improvement. Has anyone had battery problems with Android Wear / Asus ZenWatch apps?
