    it is optional, what it does is that it wipes system, data, boot, and cache three times and then it wipes the temp. files three times. couple that with wiping data, dalvik cache and cache will give your rom a super clean environment to install your rom.

    Using it just simplifies the wiping part. It wipes all of the partitions that are used by thr rom 3x to make sure you get a clean install.

    So this is a good idea in my thoughts because Ive noticed that most problems seem to be linked from stray data left in these folders and most answers to problems are to wipe these folders.

    yep exactly. i wipe data, dalvik cache and cache 3x then do the superwipe then flash my rom. i know that is overkill but it works. never had any issues.

    MikG 3D is like MikG 2.5 but with the 3D Carousel and Sense 3.0. MikG 2.5 is sense 2.1 with 3.0 elements. You can't go wrong either way you go though.
