    Default wiping data when flashing roms

    Is there a "virtual SD card" or some kind of partitioned space that will not get deleted while fully wiping the phone before flashing? I'd like to use titanium backup for my app data if that won't get wiped.

    The sd card does not get erased during wipes. Superwipe,factory reset, erase cache, and dalvik and you should be fine.

    Best thing you can do if you're new to flashing. That and Nandroid Back up your existing setup before you try to flash anything just so you have a back up file you can flash back to if/when needed

    I would ask smw6180 before using it, if by chance the at&t model might use different partition blocks and if thats the case it will screw you up

    Its been so long since I rooted an HTC device and while rooting it mostly the same there are differences. At least having the H1 Dev Edition makes life easier since I am unlocked I just need to root, super user, backup etc. Then flash the custom ROM.

    The process was almost identical to the 3D besides the jbear wire trick.

    It didn't work. It just failed to install. But nothing was screwed up.

    Yeah I usually don't do that ever. This just seemed too simple for it to mess anything up. I bet I did get lucky this time! Lol I'm gonna stop doing that though, you are right.
