    Default Nightly's question

    So I've been flashing CM9 Nightly's for a week now. I was wondering if there's a way to keep everything like i have it before i flash another CM9 Nightly? So i don't have to set my whole phone up again. You know like the Widgets, App shortcuts and ETC.
    Had to ask this question^^ Because if there's been an easier way I'll go nuts lmao..

    When you flash nightlies, you don't normally have to do a data wipe. If you just wipe the Dalvik cache, and do a backup, you are good to go. It's when you wipe the data that you have to start all over again.

    At the very least wipe cache AND dalvik cache AND format /system (under mounts & storage.. No, this will not erase your data either). For nightlies that will usually be alright. If you run into issues at any point, especially ones not being reported elsewhere, assume you need to do a full wipe.
