As most know I had a situation on Thursday night that gave me my first real "brick". I've always used CWM for recovery since SPRecovery stopped developing and felt really comfortable with it. I recently started using TWRP, and although it was my own fault I messed up, I still think it was my unfamiliarity with TWRP that could have been my downfall. I was going to install CleanROM, and it said to be wiping data / Factory Reset in Recovery. The "Factory Reset" part was I believe the part that caused all my issues as I was using LiquidSmooth RC8 at the time.
What I would have done in CWM is the following steps:
-Wipe data/factory reset
-wipe cache partition
-mounts and storage/format:
-install zip from sdcard
Without installing TWRP, I know there's a "Wipe Cache" and "Wipe Delvak". What else should I have done based on the CleanROM instructions and what would be the same as what I would do in CWM? It might be a while before I get brave enough to go back to TWRP. I have the CWM Touch feature which is really nice, but not quite as nice as theming TWRP.
Thanks in advance.
