    According to several statements and threads by several people:

    Froyo has a built-in feature that if you wipe it will RETAIN your apps (at least some of them).

    So if you are having issues with an app, and you wipe and re-flash, that app may still be there with the same issues.


    I have already experienced this. As far as I know, no other ROM has this issue.


    Here is what I had to do:


    While the phone is booted:

    1. Menu>Privacy>Factory data reset

    2. Go into recovery

    3. Completely wipe everything and I do mean EVERYTHING

    4. Move ROM back over to Sd card and flash it

    thanks for the heads up. Just moved to 2.2 and haven't had any problems yet but it's good to know anyways.
