    My phone is running like crap and I want to start fresh with it. I've also decided to try a 3rd party ROM.
    Do I need to do a Hard Reset or something else, or will it be a clean slate as part of the ROM install?
    Thanks

    edit:if you use safe strap, you do not have to wipe data, to install a rom
    but it is a good idea to backup data before installing a ROM

    for call log, and texts, look at sms backup +
    make sure your contacts are backed up,

    root with motofail
    back up apps with titanium backup pro

    install safe strap 3, watch how-to video
    use ss3 to install ROMs

    see my list, for links
