Most people come into custom roms and dont really *understand* what the forums are saying to them in the terms of doing things the right way, often things get misinterpreted as i understand but really you don't!!! This is the case when it comes to custom roms installation, new comers think yeah i'll have a go and go for it without even understanding the basics of custom roms, wrong move, a little research didn't do anybody any harm, and is time well spent when it comes to taking a gamble on bricking your phone. The main thing I've noticed is that people don't understand what a full wipe is and just go with what they see... Going into clockwork mode and just selecting wipe data, wipe delvic cache, wipe cache, is not a proper full wipe, its like wiping your *** with **** still in your bumhole untill you wash it, no no no, this method doesn't remove the old system files, there still there untill you carry out a format of the system partition, if you dont do this and install a rom over it you will have problems with the rom you just installed. The correct procedure for doing a full wipe is below. [list=1] [*]Go to clockwork mode recovery. Volume up, power button, and home button all pressed together for a couple of seconds [*]Go to mounts and storage and select it. [*]Go to format / system and select it. Scroll down to format system and select yes. [*]Go to format / data and select it Scroll down to format data and select yes. [*]Go to format / cache and select it. Scroll down to format cache and select yes [*]Go to format / cache and select it. Scroll down to format cache and select yes That's it no need to format anything else, just go back and install the rom [/list] from sd card. This is the correct way of doing a full wipe everything is erased and formatted ready for the new rom, no old system files etc....[/CODE]
