    Well since I've gotten into installing custom ROMs its nice, but I hate wiping data/cache. I've gone from Nexbeast 1.1 to Nexfro .4 without a wipe. No complaints but when I drop my phone it immediatly reboots. When I open it and click stuff to fast it will reboot and sometimes for no reason at all.

    Is this because of me not wiping data or just sucky phone?

    P.S. using stock kernel

    Edit: when going to CM6 should I wipe data?

    2 things I see:
    Stop dropping your phone. That may be a clue. There was another thread somewhere with someone else having reboot issues after dropping the phone. It's like telling us that your car makes noise after slamming into a pothole.

    If I remember correctly, NB 1.1 was a 2.1 and NF .4 is Froyo. Ya should have wiped. The most common source of issues when changing a ROM is because of not wiping.
