    I noticed after I rooted and flashed BB.4 My phone had completely wiped. Had to do the *228 to program the phone and all that.

    Made a backup.

    After making some tweaks, themes, kernels, etc. for a few days, I used SPrecovery to restore back to the original BB.4 install.

    However, After rebooting, and putting in my gmail account, I turned on wifi... and found that my phone remembered my home wifi settings and password and was already connecting.

    Why did this persist through a restore? Yes, I wiped data and cache three times.

    Is doing an install from update.zip on memory card more thorough?

    If I remember correctly, wifi information is one of the settings backed up to the google cloud when you check the "backup user settings" box. I don't think it has anything to do with being "left over" in the phone, it just restores itself with your google login.
