    Okay folks, I am a backup expert and advocate but... a restore virgin! :eek: I've never had to do it! But now, I want to revert back to my dear Bugless Beast backup. And I'm not too proud to ask for help:

    What exactly do I wipe, if anything, before restoring? Do I wipe data, cache, system and boot, or none of the above? I'm obviously in ClockworkMod Recovery. Thanks for enlightening me and other restore virgins out here.

    no need to wipe anything. If you want to wipe anything or everything to feel safer you can but it shouldnt make a difference

    Thank you OMJ (Oh, Master Jedi)! I feel a lot better now! I was concerned about artifacts that might be left over - hence the "wipe 3 times" thing - and will probably wipe anyway. Nice to know it's not necessary, though.
