    He's actually up to v2.3 (which is awesome), and he does recommend fully wiping each time.

    i always do a full wipe on most roms anyways. even if i'm just updating the rom. but usually i'm not on one rom long enough to do it. just too many roms to try out. lol

    For most of the MikG releases, aamikam highly recommends doing a full wipe. A few of his releases had an update zip but for most of the builds, a complete wipe was in order.

    So to answer the op's question, yes, do a complete wipe if you're going to flash v2.2 or v2.3;)

    Good to know. I guess i havent delved into the arena of mikg's stuff too much. I tried it out a while back, but almost immediately flashed my nand of cm7... i guess i just didnt see any advantage to his rom, no offense to mik cuz i know he puts alot into his stuff by way of customization n so forth...

    Every version of mik is built from the ground up. It sucks but unfortunately you do need a complete wipe or else youll run into some problems.
