    Default why to wipe device?

    Hi guys,
    I just want to know why it matters what base you have before installing a hybrid os, as long as the device will be wiped out.
    I mean if I have base .714 on my device, why it matters if I uninstall it from pc, wipe out me device and then install .746 and then shrink and install??? thank you in advance

    Default Re: why to wipe device?

    You don't have to, i believe the main reason is to prevent any third party app conflictions. Personally i don't wipe before installing a hybrid, as loader wipes before install anyway.
