Default Dirty Flashing

I know its not kosher, but how many folks dirty flash? With the nightly ROMs I know its sometimes okay to do. I really want to update on the jellybro but they update so much I don't want to full wipe each time.

When flashing nightlies it's totally okay to dirty flash, it's just not recommended when coming from a different ROM. Just so you know I've dirty flashed every single JellyBro nightly since I started running it. No issues here.

What about dirty flashing after like a week of nightlies. Too much a difference?


Oh, what about the kernel, re-flash that too right?

1. Doesn't matter, you should be good.

2. Yes. When you flash the newer nightly, your custom kernel gets replaced with the kernel that comes with the ROM. So when flashing a new nightly, I do it in this order ROM/Gaaps/Kernel boot.

Did that exact order last night. Everything worked fine and I skipped like 7 nightlies. Of course I backed up before trying.
