    I've always been a believer in fresh installs on OS's but I was feeling lazy and didn't want to back up my nice .595. I flashed the single .596 and bouchigo's mods and everything is good but my install feels 'dirty'.

    Is there any reason to SBF and do the 2 part install over what I did? Just curious if there's any actual technical reason one way or the other.

    You should be fine coming from .595 to .596. That is the procedure I took and it has been running flawlessly.

    I understand what you mean though, a little bit of OCD eh?

    If your baseband is .12p then you're good to go to flash over it. If not then the long route will be the course of action

    both ways were the same for me. I did them both. Either way is good.
