    Hey guys. I think I know the Answer to this...just want to be sure though. Does flashing a kernel and only wiping cache affect wallet...or must I clear data before kernel flashing too?

    you don't need to wipe anything when flashing a kernel..... and I only wipe(if i remember to) wallet when I do a clean flash of a ROM. But I've clean flashed many of times and not wiped wallet. I just never restore data from titanium for wallet. Oh wait, I've done that too. Haven't bricked the secure element yet. So I guess to be safe, do it when you clean flash a new ROM

    edit: I really don't understand the question..... just flash the kernel and drive on?

    Lol thx bud. I'm coming from evo 4g and it seems they preach wiping...so with nexus no wipe at all required for kernel flash?

    correct. Don't wipe anything with a kernel flash. Not necessary

    Last question...what about a dirty ROM update flash....reset the wallet prior?

    Don't need to. Dirty flash and all your apps, including wallet, are preserved
