    I just switched to TWRP to give it a shot. I was using CWM Touch. I like some of the extra features in TWRP, but I really want to use which ever tends to be more reliable. Since the 6.0.0.* updates I have read about issues (I had a failed nandroid myself before the latest update). As of the mose recent releases, is there a good reason to go with one over the others, or is it just a matter of preference? Thanks!

    I was reluctant for a while because of incompatibility with all of my old cwm backups... but I deleted those by mistake one night, so I've been on twrp since, lol

    It's very awesome. Don't think I'll be using cwm any time soon.

    Twerp alla way. If you knew how much I liked cwm you would be shocked to hear me say that.

    The lastest cwm releases have bugs particularly with nandroid restores. Bootlooped twice with restores.

    By the way, with the TWRP backups, there are a lot of options. The default selects system, data, and boot. Should any other options be selected? Should any be not selected when doing a typical restore?

    Well if you backed them up you would prolly want them restored, right? I've never used TWRP so I don't know what options you are talking about, but I don't see how restoring something would have a negative impact.

    Nah just leave it as is. System, data and boot are good. I also have it skip md5 generation during backups because it makes it quicker and I don't see the need for it.

    You can backup everything when making your nandroid, the important part is to make sure you wipe EVERYTHING BEFORE you RESTORE a backup.

    So, no need to select recovery, cache, or efs (whatever that is) when making a nandroid?

    Been using CWM for a long time now. Yesterday I decided to try TWRP. Loaded it, made a backup, flashed a new rom last night including wiping everything. Found TWRP easier and like the way it looks and handles. I'll be staying with TWRP now.

    Just installed the new CWM 6. It now supports incremental backups so backups are smaller and faster since only the files that change get backed up.

    The goomanager app available in the market will flash it for you as well I believe.

    No the img has to be fastbooted.. You are probably easier off grabbing goomanager and having it flash it for you

    So for TWRP, which ones do we wipe in order to do a clean install for a new ROM: cache, delvik cache, factory reset, system, internal storage, and/or format data?

    Wipe everything but the internal storage?

    As dmmarck says, do a clockwise wipe: factory reset, cache, davlik cache, system. Just those. For a dirty flash just omit the factory reset.

    I switched to TWRP just after i switched to jellybean. Have not looked back. The UI is much easier to use, seems to back up fast after turning off MD5. Can name backups on the fly. No problems to report so far. Highly recommended.
