    I'm kinda new to updating os on bb10 but I was wondering if all the save files in games will be wiped when I install a new leak?

    Only asking this question because that's how it was on bb7 devices.

    Edit: will backing up my z10 before installing the leak save my progress in games?

    Yes it will you can Do back ups but sometimes restoring can be a problem. And sometimes restoring introduces issues/glitches with the phone

    Yup, what he said ^

    A backup should restore your game data, but be prepared for the possibility that the backup won't restore.. it isn't as much of a problem with the new leaks as it once was, but there's always a chance.. they are leaks for a reason..

    Yes,installing a leak will wipe the device.
    Yes, restoring will bring back game saves (there are some known issues with restoring using older leaks, but the last 4 leaks have been solid with regards to restoring your stuff.

    Definitely worth the risk and time. Worse that can happen is you brick the phone, but there are ways to unbrick it. Another is that the backup doesn't restore, but then just switch back.

    Likelihood of either issue mentioned above is slim (I've used all except one leak and have not had those issues).

    Hmm, not sure if it is worth updating from to the latest leak.

    You can just update the apps if you want. Look in the Hybrid Sticky.

    Might work, backup might be ok. Worst that could happen is you reload 1047 and reinstall backup from 1047...worth a try. Go for it, keep us posted. Good luck.
