Well, i'm not sure with Sapphire, but if you're using Chevy's ROM and you use bkapps/rstapps, you can clear cache and data with NO ISSUES, because you can restore them immediately after you load the new rom.
If not, you should DEFINITELY still wipe data/cache between roms. I hear titanium backup or the full(paid) version of ROM manager do a good backup.
Personally, I don't have that many programs that i HAVE to have, so I just wipe (lose all personal stuff) and reinstall.
After installing new ROM, just sign in with google ID, and if you've sync'd with google, give it a few and it'll start reinstalling your programs for ya. The only thing you'll lose is email that was ONLY on your device, or messages and call logs.
Pretty much everything else is on Google's servers I think.
edit: if you're just getting the endless bootloop...i think a good wipe might be JUST what you're looking for!
