I have a Pre3 that's become buggy & instead of doctoring it, I want to swap to my backup device. I can then keep the original to check my settings, patches, etc to make sure the backup matches. I want to install GMMan's ipk saving patch before swapping so I can save the ipk's of my apps as they install on the new device. I've already bypassed activation on the new Pre3, will the patch survive a simply wipe?
What's a surefire way to make sure my old Pre3 doesn't self-wipe? I've used the option in Impostah before on my Pre2 and it still wiped after HP saw I activated another device. I'm thinking forget my wifi network, turn on airplane mode, then delete the profile in Impostah. Should work right? I'd like to keep the original until I'm sure everything is replaced on the new one.
