    I have been looking around but unable to find a solid answer to this question and I wanted to know if I have a custom rom/kernel/radio installed on my TB and I want to do a factory reset/format sd card, will that destroy the installed rom/kernel/radio?

    No,it will not. As long as you don't flash a new rom /kernel, your current combo should be fine. May want to back it up,just in case ;)

    If you backup the rom then wipe your SD card it will wipe the backup as well. So first do a backup then put it on dropbox or your computer before formatting the SD card.

    Good point :eek: move the entire clockwork mod folder somewhere safe before formatting the card,as well as any pics,ringtones,etc.
