    Default Reflashing the same ROM?

    OK setting up Beans I love it but there are a couple things I wish I would have done different when I flashed. Am I able to just reflash the ROM and make some cosmetic changes without losing everything and having to set it up again?

    ie: I don't want the battery circle anymore due to having that nice little line on top of my screen. I also installed ES File Explorer with the ROM and not a fan. Or heck is there a way to mod these without flashing?

    Thanks

    The line can be disabled. Settings - custom settings, hide the battery bar.
    If you don't like es file explorer (my favorite one btw) just don't use it, or you can delete it.

    Just the oposite I like the battery bar and want to get rid of the battery circle. No need for both. I like ES but just have more experience with Root Explorer. Guess if I played with ES more I would like it. I would have deleted it but it won't let me as I installed it with the ROM.

    Yeah, I read that backwards (get off my back, I'm old).

    You could still delete ES, it's just an apk in /system/app.
    I think you will have to reflash to change the circle though.
    You should be able to reflash without wiping data since it's the same ROM.

    Just in case anyone else has this question.....

    I did reflash Beans and picked the options I wanted with no problems. I did have to set up the blue notifications and lightsaber sounds for Spen but I expected that.

    To clarify.

    If you ever need to re flash a ROM for any reason aside from severe stability issues you can dirty flash the ROM. That simply means wipe cache and dalvik and system before flashing. No need for factory reset data wipe.
