    I recently got a friend rooted and running jrummys lithium mod, and although it is a good rom it just isnt running right. So my question is I need to switch them over to sapphire because it seems more stable. My question is do you need to wipe when going from a source built frf01b to another source built frf01b

    Make a backup 1st, then try with no wipe. If you have any issues, restore, wipe and reinstall.

    Usually you do need to wipe though

    Some of our best RS members are, as you say, "chicks".So don't doubt them too much.

    I've been doing exactly what Tallica recommends for about 8 months now. I only wipe 1) if going to a different os base (2.01 - 2.1, etc.) or 2) if after an install I encounter problems. I very, very infrequently encounter problems. Good luck.
