    Make a backup and try it ;)

    Sometimes it won't matter. Sometimes it will. Some say don't worry about it. Some say you MUST do it.

    I just wipe everything no matter what and I've always been happy with my results going from ROM to ROM whether updates or flashing an entirely new one.

    Thanks for testing! I'm thinking when going from a Sense based ROM to a Sense based ROM which are based off the same build # (I'm not sure these are just a hunch) that there is no need to wipe cache

    That's cool, but when wierd things start popping up here and there and you can't figure how to account for them... just remember, "didn't wipe, hrmm." Otherwise, have fun!
