    I hear alot of people saying to wipe data and cache three time before installing from roms if yourstill on 2.1. Now if i use rom manager to flash a froyo rom when i tap the wipe data and cache option isnt it only going to wipe the data once?

    I have never wiped data/cache/system more than once and have never had a problem.

    I'm not really sure where the wipe 3 times originated but I've never had to do anything more than a wipe and install.
