    This may be a dumb question but if I would like to do a security wipe before installing 10.3.1. So to have a fresh install. What steps would I follow? First backup via BlackBerry Link to be sure, than the wipe, and then? Connect to link again when starting up the phone or.....??

    Thanks for any advice!!

    Backup with link, wipe, update, and restore your settings/data with link again

    Thanks! And than the updating would go via link as well? Meaning I will connect again to link after the wipe and link will "see" the new OS update to be put in place?

    Thanks again!

    If you are restoring, secure wipe is not really necessary is it? It is best to secure wipe, load and start over for a true clean OS. Restoring things may be convenient but you don't know what comes back that you may not have wanted and what may have prompted you to reload in the first place.

    Yes, it will load whatever the current OS should be for your phone.

    Hello, I want to reload the OS using link. My question are:
    Here in Argentina they sell the Z10 STL 100-1 but I have the STL 100-3 from BB shop. Will Link load the current OS for the STL-1 or
    STL-3 ? We know both devices ore not the same. One has another processor, one is 3G and the other 4G LTE. Should I insert the sim card and memo card before I reload the OS or not ?
    Thanks in advance
