Does this rom wipe data with every update?
Yes it does. It is built into the install script. Even if you don't wipe data/factory reset r3blurr3d roms do it anyway on installation. The thread was full of people who had unnecessary problems asking for help because they didn't follow the instructions to wipe, so the dev put it in. Since he did that they can focus on fixing actual issues in the rom instead of answering noob questions resulting from not following instructions. The rom is advancing rapidly now.
You now only have to down full wipe once upon installing the base rom. Updates no longer require a full wipe but if you have any issues a wipe would be recommended.
