"Wipe": How severe?
So I have to unlock my bootloader to do this (I'm completely stock.), but it's saying that it wants to do a factory reset in the process for "security reasons".
What's the extent of this?
Is it going to reformat my SD too?
Will I have to re-download all my apps and reset all my custom system settings and SD card app-moves by hand?
When I re-log-in to my G-account will it pull everything back down, and if not is there a way I can back up the whole enchilada without having root in the first place?
Thanks! This kind of hassle is the reason I haven't bothered to root so far.
