    This may well be a silly question but it's one that's been on my mind for a while now and has been resurrected by the recent 'leak':

    What, in particle terms, is the difference between installing via an autoloader or blitzing the files? Is one anymore efficient? Does one give you more control over what loads? ETC.

    I currently blitz but am wondering if I'm missing out

    Cheers

    What does blitzing mean?

    Some of us take the blitz and radio files and make an Autoloader. For me an Autoloader allows for a clean install of the OS, and then I manually recreate account and add other apps.

    Using a blitz file to mimic an OTA update... allows you to not loose and data and not to have to deal with rebuilding your phone. Should make of a very easy transition, if all goes well.

    The issue is when it doesn't all go well.... I've had devices brick trying to do an OTA installation, which means I got to do a clean install anyway. I've had things get very buggy (especially the contact app) that required a clean install anyway. From the early days, I just got in the habit of doing a clean install.... at this point with BB10.3.3, not sure it is as necessary or not. Just works for me.

    Thanks for the explanation, kinda knew that but not a tech head so needed confirmation. Apologies for the terminology.

    Autoloader: Destructive... Wipes device... Clean install. Backup before using if you want to keep any of your data.

    Blitz: Non-destructive, similar to OTA update. If it fails, see Autoloader above.
