    I have seen so many threads talking about wiping the phone info...
    just the cache....
    need to wipe data....
    do a system wipe....

    Does someone mind explaining when you should and what should you wipe???

    I have been on 2.0.1 ROMS the entire time, but have gone from
    SholesMOD 2.0.1 to
    Bugless Beast to
    Sholes 2.0.5 and have stayed there since.

    I have also made changes to themes using Metamorph, and changed the overall font through the Terminal method.
    Everything seems ok, but I do get a Home FC sometimes when coming out of an app back to the home screen.

    I did a cache wipe today and no FC since that. Is it necessary to wipe data or system?
    Thanks for any info and help!!

    Unless you're having problems or need space, there's really no reason to wipe.
