I love change. Don't get me wrong. I love trying new roms, leaks, betas...none of that bothers me. But every time I try a new one I have to spend an hour or more setting the phone back up. I go home and try to call my wife to see if I should stop and pick up dinner...Blue Tooth is not connected to my hands free...forgot to set that back up. It does get old.
But when Verizon releases an OTA update I do not lose my settings and the data/cache do not create problems and I do not get stuck in a boot loop. So it is obvioulsy posible to install a new rom without wiping data and cache.
Can't one of these amazing developers write an install routine that cleanly installs a new ROM without having to wipe my A$$ every time?
