Why is upgrading through recovery mode safer
Ever since the beginning of CFW, nearly 95% of the people say, "always upgrade through recovery mode, it is safer," but not a single person knows why. From what I understand, recovery mode allows to install a firmware that is the current version (3.55 ofw with 3.55 kmeaw). However, that doesn't make it safer, that's just to avoid a technical limitation; what are the specific technical details why recovery is safer?
Don't say, it has less bricks (fallacy, not technical at all)
Is it me or does 95% of the people just copy what other people say on here and it just became a trend to say, "upgrade through recovery?"
