    I am currently on Omega v9.0 XXBLG1 (Ice Cream Sandwich) but I want to install Jellybean. Can I just flash Jellybean over the top of my custom rom (and lose root) or do I have to unroot, return to stock ICS and then flash Jellybean?

    Should I also do a full wipe before I flash Jellybean over Omega?

    Why not simply flash the latest Omega based on jellybean?

    I wasn't sure if I could go from Omega ICS to Omega JB. If I can this will be much easier.

    Yes I have all the backups I need. Should I do a factory reset before flashing Omega JB or after?

    It wont hurt to do it after. Then you can see if everything works. if ti does, you're good. If something doesn't work, go back into recovery and wipe.

    Ok, from what I have read the newer versions wipe cache and dalvik cache during install don't they? Factory reset is more 'extreme' than these two wipes if it doesnt work properly.

    Oh does it? I don't use Omega but yeah its no bad thing wiping /cache and /data/dalvik-cache. A factory reset (from recovery - cant stress that enough) will do both of the former but also /data in its entirety (data/app, data/data etc) which is essentially where anything "you" sits.

    I think iwill wipe /cache and dalvik-cache before install anyway. Do I flash the new Omega ROM with Odin?

    No, via recovery :)

    CWM reocvery = .zips (Flashable only)

    Odin = .tar / .pit / .img

    performed a factory reset in CWM and flashed Omega 36. Everything looks good so far, now just restoring apps with titanium backup
