Upgrading from CM Release Candidate to Stable
I apologize if this has been covered in a thread before. I've been rooting and ROMming for a while now - first with my EVO 4G and now with my Nexus S 4G. But one thing I've never been clear on is the procedure of wiping data when upgrading ROMs. In this case, I have CM9 release candidate 2 (9.0.0-RC2-crespo4g) running on my NS4G and I want to the upgrade to the newly stable version of CM9 (cm-9.0.0-crespo4g). Do I need to wipe/factory reset before I flash the new ROM or can I simply flash and be fine, ergo keeping all my settings? Gracias por su respuesta.

Re: Upgrading from CM Release Candidate to Stable
You can try the "dirty" flash, by just wiping the cache and dalvik cache. If it acts weird, then do a full wipe, (including factory reset, wipe cache, format system, format cache. format data, format boot, wipe Dalvik cache) then flash the rom and gapps.
