    Does either method offer you any advantage or are they technically the same?

    I've been using the Blitz upgrade method for quite sometime. I've recently been realizing the OS is getting a bit unstable - apps crashing / locking / freezing....

    Is it the update method or is it just the latest update

    Not the same to me, but depends on your definition of "clean install."

    I always prefered OTA updates and now enjoyed the "Sachesi way" (one time only, though)

    However a clean install might bring order in cluttered homes... I mean although flash memory, the phone might get a sort of "defragmentation" and might seem to get faster.

    It depends, I've had trouble with Blitz packages I've downloaded in the past (slight performance / battery drain). Autoloader are a clean install but you have to rebuild everything from scratch. If you're going to go down the autoloader route I'd strongly recommend that you don't backup with link and manually back up your personal files.

    I've found Blitz to work smooth only when I've made it myself from debrick.

    Thanks. I'm realizing that a couple of hard reboots helps (holding down the power button and letting the red light blink). It appears that the phone is becoming more stable.

    Autoloaders wipe the device. I usually use them when I want to start over and only restore contacts. I find the phone runs faster and its like being brand new again. I usually blitz most of the time as I only need to install newer files and doesnt take as long. I will usually use an autoloader when I get a bit of lag or just want to get rid of a problem app! Hope this helps
