    I'm trying to install my first custom rom on my Droid (using Rom Manager). Do I always have to "wipe data and cache" when I change from one rom to another?

    I've seen people on the boards here talking about changing roms pretty frequently, so are they having to re-install all their apps, settings, everything else each and every time?:blink:

    Based on developer instructions you can avoid wiping only if upgrading from one version to another on the same rom.

    I treat it like a PC. I always do a clean install when going from one version of Windows to the next.
