    Wipe Data/Factory reset. That's it for ROMs.

    I've also heard to make sure you clear out your cache files too prior to starting a new ROM. Hope your new ROM is running as smooth as butter! :smokingsomb:

    Actually it's a factory reset, wipe cache, wipe dalvik cache when flashing new ROMS :)
