    Thanks. So this (the method for custom recovery) will wipe all data, right?

    And to carry that question further, will the factory reset remove all my downloaded apps? Or just any data? I know that wiping cache and dalvik is going to wipe the profiles, i.e. I will have to sign back into everything.

    You could do a dirty flash and only wipe cache and dalvik and you shouldn't lose any data. However if it causes issues, you will have to do the factory reset.

    Wiping dalvik and cache will not cause any issues and you won't need to sign in or setup anything. It will only cause the updating apps at the startup. Factory reset will remove your downloaded apps and you will have to setup all your account. Like I said try doing a dirty flash first and don't do the factory reset. This will be completely painless. But if you do have issues (most likely you won't) then do the factory reset.

    I guess I'll wait until the weekend, then, so I have plenty of time to restore all my apps and data if needed. Actually, I'll probably wait at least a few days to make sure this update doesn't have a bunch of bugs just waiting to be discovered.

    Thanks skunk.

    Someone can correct me, but this basically *is* a rom - the stock rom. So no, you'd have to wait for your rom of choice to integrate the updates from this into theirs.

    Not a stupid question. Odex is the way the stock ROM is packaged and built...yes it is the way stock ROMs come from the factory, sts. A developer may repackage the apk files a certain way (Deodex) so he can theme a custom ROM. Most people don't need deodexed versions.

    That's what I thought, thanks. I can't seem to keep the two terms straight in my head - not one of those "important" things to me, I guess.

    And "stupid" only in that I could have looked it up...but thanks nonetheless.

    Quoirad is correct. This is packaged as a complete Rom and it will overwrite your custom Rom. If you want to stay with your custom Rom you will have to wait for the dev to update it. There is no other way.

    Since the dev just put out an update, he may choose to wait for a more significant update and just skip this one.

    If you are talking about wicked sensations jellybean, do you realize he has updated it to 2.0 almost 2 weeks ago?

    It's not only themed roms but many common mods also require a deodexed rom.

    If you just want a stock rooted Rom but don't flash mods or themes then the odexed if probably your best bet.

    Skunkape - one suggestion to add to the procedure(s) (at least for custom recovery people) - you might explicitly remind them to take a nandroid backup before they start wiping caches and flashing.

    If and when it comes, it will come much like what I sent you. You will just flash it in recovery. You can just stay on what your running now and when and if it is released as a Rom, you can just flash it. But at this point I haven't seen it even being discussed.

    How do I do a "dirty flash"?

    Do everything but the factory reset. So you still wipe your cache and Dalvik cache, but then you flash the firmware/rom.
