Question regarding full wipe?
I feel stupid even asking this question but I guess everyone has to start somewhere. I have my device rooted and setup the way I want but want to experiment with some different roms available. Some Roms say a full wipe is required. Does a full wipe format both the phones space and the SDcard, or just the phone? I have done a backup of my rom and also a titanium backup but if that is stored to SD card and a wipe would erase that data then it is kinda pointless. Thanks

what is that zip called or a link? Also can you recommend any roms for the inspire as I have read quite a few of your other post and appear to have played with a few. I do seem to like sense, but then again its all I know. I will try cyagonmod just to see what the hype is all about also.

I have played with nearly all of the ROMs that are on xda. It comes down to a couple of things when deciding for me. I don't really like Sense so the more vanilla ROMs are for me like CM7, LeeDrOiD's non-sense version, di11is makes a non-sense verion and I liked them all. I'm currently using the MIUI ROM and I have used that one longer than any of the others. It's updated every Friday and you can customize the hell out of it. Different meters, themes, etc. There are quite a few Sense ROMs as well and peopple seem to love those as well. All the devs over there keep up on their work and are damn good at what they do.
The biggest piece of advice I can give you is to read the OP very well as they might have different recommendations for how to flash, radios, etc. Also read about the last 10 pages or so so you can get an idea of what is going on with their current version as they will update their ROMs but keep the original thread going.
If you take your time and fully understand how to flash their ROMs you'll more than liely have little to no issues. Have fun. ROM flashing is an addiction but a healthy one.
That's pretty much what I've been doing is reading the front page and the last 5-10 pages over there on what issues people may be having on if I would want to attempt that ROM or not. Thanks for the help.
Why do you not like the sense?
I have seens others leave out sense, but port some of the widgets and facebook for sense, which is pretty much what I like about it.
