    I'm getting ready to move to the Nexus and give up my X. Before I sbf, I assume it's fine to wipe the sd card, correct?

    [witty pun concerning the current ROM and custom memory script on my device]

    I would think that a reformat before or after. I'd probably do it after just because I'm a little OCD.

    Why erase SD at all, just curious?

    I assumed it is because he is passing the phone on to someone else.

    Makes sense, and I don't think it matters as far as SBF concerned, if I'm not mistaken the SD is not involved in the flash process.

    Your right... The sbf only touches the system partition... Then a quick factory reset... the phone will be clean...
    then a format to the sd.. And it'll be how it came out if the box..

    We have nothing to fear but running out of beer
