    Clockworks Recovery vs TWRP Question

    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:
    -- /system
    -- /data
    --/cache
    -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.

    Those steps seem a bit excessive to me, to be honest. Every time I've had to install a new ROM completely from scratch, I've just done a wipe data/factory reset, followed by wiping the regular and Dalvik caches. (I do this before and after, just in case the ROM cook/developer had inadvertently left some "crud" behind). Never had a problem.

    I do the same as you Scott. It only takes another 2 minutes at the most and I feel best about it... Better be safe and feel good about it... It eliminates that as a variable if you have issues with the ROM also.

    Thanks Miller6386 - do you use TWRP much or just CWR?

    This is the first phone I've used TWRP on and I like the UI better than CWR

    What would be similar settings to do in TWRP that would mimic what I do in CWR?

    It does the same exact thing I just like the touch screen and layout of TWRP.. I also think it does backups a little faster... But don't use something based on what others tell you, you have to use what you feel the most comfortable with. They do the same thing it's just a matter of personal preference.. Just like choosing a ROM.

    Miller...vulcan is asking what selections in twrp are equal to cwr. I personally use cwr touch. I've used cwr since the tbolt and never had any issues so its what I'm comfortable with. I personally wipe data. Cache then format system. Never had any issues ever. And if u "brick" make sure u have a backup in cwr or twrp that u can reinstall.
