Cyanogen upgrade?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Can I upgrade/downgrade my blade from CM7.1.0-RC-1 to CM7 nighties without wipe (loosing all my settings and data)? I know you can make it using Titanium backup but can I do it just without wipe?

Sorry is this topic has been discussed before, I'm new here :mellow:

Short answer: maybe. Long answer: maybe. But make a backup just in case it doesn't work. And by the way it has been discussed many times over at CM's forum :) Works for some users (me included), some others must wipe... Make a backup in CWM and give it a try.

You probably can, but if you do have issues e.g. force closes, hardware not working or poor battery life then it would be advisable to do a full wipe.

It would not be advisable to blindly overwrite an existing CM7.1.0-RC-1 to CM7 nighties without wipe, the nightlies are streets ahead of the RC version, and thus, you will definitely encounter errors with apps force closing. You need to do a full wipe for that - am afraid.

In the case of going from one nightly to a newer nightly, you can simply install it without wiping. Its the going up from one nightly to the newer nightly version that you be okie with. Going down from recent nightly to older nightly might introduce force errors... (actually have not tried that mind you) :)
