Default Cm update

I installed cm 10.2 the other day on my att HTC one. When cm 11 becomes stable, is there any way I can get it without having to wipe my phone again?

You should always do a full wipe for a major version change. There's no guarantee that everything will remain the same, so the new version may very well hard crash, requiring a recovery wipe and you'll be doing exactly what you're trying to avoid doing.

If you're unlocked/s off and have a recovery installed,you just need to make a backup,wipe,and flash the rom

changing from CM 10.2 to CM 11 would only require a wipe/factory reset and flash of the current rom

If you chose to "dirty flash" make sure you don't blame any bugs or prollems you have on the rom. While 4.3 is similar to 4.4 a full wipe is recomended to make the jump from 10.2 to 11.

No harm in trying it,but be prepaired to full wipe and reflash if things don't work quite right.

As @Rukbat stated above, with any major version change, you should do a full wipe/factory reset. Dirty flashing KitKat on top of Jellybean is not recommended.

Just stating from personal experience. If course, you're right. "It worked for me" doesn't mean that it will work for you or the next guy

Use titanium back up. Then do a full wipe.
