    I have it on my sd root, do I need to flash it, or is it a program I run whilst my phone is on, or an option in recovery?

    Help me... I was told so many times to get it, but just like busybox, I don't know how to use it?

    Super wipe is a zip that that wipes all your files from your phones memory. It is used when installing a rom or some thing of the like

    Thanks mate, how do I use it? Do I need to flash it before it becomes available as an option? I'm sick of wiping everything manually.

    You flash it before you flash a rom.

    yep superwipe is awesome. it wipes system, boot, and cache and it does that three times and the it also wipes your temp files and does that 3x. do not rely on it though. make sure that you are still doing a full wipe. most people here wipe everything but the sd card, but you need to do a minimum of dalvik cache, cache and data. after that then you run the superwipe then you flash the rom.

    It wipes your system and your boot, so if you flash it after flashing a ROM you'll basically be wiping away that ROM.


    Superwipe is to be used AFTER doing your manual wipe and BEFORE flashing your ROM.

    If you flash superwipe after flashing a ROM then you would have Flashed a ROM for no other reason than to wipe it back off. Superwipe will wipe 3 times:
    Data
    System
    Boot
    Cache
    Dalvic Cache

    So running superwipe after installing a fresh rom will clean everything back off of the phone you will only be able to boot to the bootloader screen. This is do to the fact that you no longer have a ROM.
