I really just want to be able to flash roms or restore some recovery backups (I'm using OUDhs CWM 220.127.116.11, so it is keeping the recovery files at /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/). Everything else, I am happy to nuke from orbit.
So, what dirs do I minimally need? What steps do I have to follow to do this? What is the difference between "factory reset" vs "cache partition" vs "dalvik cache"?
Factory reset wipes the data partition.
if you wanna delete internal sd card you would choose format/internal sd.
but remember to pull out the folders you want.
