    So, I just replaced my Hard drive for a laptop that I have reformatted several times over the years. My question is if it is bad to constantly wipe and upload these OS? I have done this to about 8 of these leaks. One person told me i am going to destroy my phone. Thanks.

    PS...The hybrid OS is a life saver

    The Storm uses flash memory to store data, and these memory cells will only be writable X number of times. X is probably somewhere in the hundreds to thousands, but sooner or later they will no longer allow any more data to be written to them.

    The odds of you running through this number of write cycles before your 2 year contract is up is small, but still greater than zero.
