What partitions can I erase?

    Just rooted and installed CWM. I see a lot of warnings on not factory resetting. Is this an issue with how the recovery factory resets? or is it the data being erased? Can I manually format the data partition? What about other partitions? If not what is the best method for removing old data before flashing a new rom? Thanks in advance.

    I'm sure this refers to doing a factory reset from within Android, not CWM. That is, if you have a rooted stock setup with the stock ROM and want to load a new ROM, wipe everything from CWM, NOT Android.

    This is the same problem that was told many times over the years to Optimus V users, an earlier model phone that is related to your Optimus Slider.

    Thank you for your response daffy. I had the V but forever ago. Didn't recall that problem, but I didn't do too much more then root that one.
