    As long as you use update.zip it will keep all your setting and apps. I did it this morning and had no trouble at all. One thing I would recommend is to wipe cache. It seems the phone runs smoother if you wipe cache and that has no effect on your settings and data. I would still run a nandroid backup before you install as is always recommended. Good Luck I have enjoyed V8 all day. Have you updated your baseband from the ese53 sbf? I have had great service all day because I did last night. I havent been below four bars of 3G all day woo hoo.

    I am sorry to go off topic I probably shouldn't have brought that up. Check THIS thread as we disscussed this last night when I and another member were having trouble.
