Here are a couple of zips to make rom installs easier.
These wipe three times to make sure everything is gone, it's a lot easier than going through all the menus.
Flash them just like a rom, before you flash a rom and should work on most any rooted phone.
This one wipes only the system, boot, cache and dalvik, for when you update your rom (A.K.A. partial wipe).
It does not remove user data.
Note: Updating is really never a great idea and can lead to instability. Prep_to_Update
This one wipes everything above, plus user data in preparation to install a new rom (A.K.A. a complete wipe).
Note: It will not wipe sd-ext, if you need more advanced areas, you will have to do them manually still. Prep_for_new_Rom
I know I never personally said this myself but, leslie-- you are the bomb
Hahaha l o l l m a o-- not the bomb maker!
Even though I plan on just updating for quite a while, always great to have these 2 zips 4 both circumstances if need be.
yours are definitely trusted rather then something stupid from the market/ play store )
All of us I'm sure will thank you but I wanted to be the first even tho I havent even tried it yet
Two silly noob questions
1) How do you run the updater-script?
2)Can I copy the lines from the Prep_for_new_Rom updater-script to the Harmonia updater-script file or does the update-binary require a specific updater-script?
1 = The updater-script is ran in recovery and the update-binary tells the recovery what to do.
2 = You ca copy the line over yes, but do not use notepad, you have to use Gedit for Windows or Notepad++ and must be in Unix format. Plus you have to understand want mount commands the update-binary tells the recovery to except, otherwise you instillation well abort.
Wait so i can use this on othet phones like the Evo 4G?
Yes, I do.

I use Open Office.
Yes, you absolutely must include the mount before you can format it. In fact it's quite precise in how it must be formatted, but it's not like there is a lot to it. It's not difficult, but I mention this because I saw a few other wipers like this while looking into it, and half of them, have errors in them and didn't work.
