Fair enough, but suppose you will be more snookered as further versions come out. Presumably future releases will all come in these packaged versions.
Out of interest, when I originally went on echoe, I did a full wipe, including your nuke which cleared absolutely everything from my phone. Literally, everything!! So setting up echoe for the first time was completely from scratch.
When I then decided to go back to mh1 and got myself in a complete pickle, I obviously wiped everything from my phone and started again. Then when I went back to echoe, I did a full wipe, and on reinstalling the echoe Rom zip, a lot of my apps and settings from my first echoe dabble reappeared. Still cannot fathom how these survived two full wipes.......
