I have been addicted to flashing new ROMs almost every other day on my DesireZ. On moving to SGS3, I started searching for a flashable zip that will do an extensive wiping for me without bothering me with wipe Data, wipe Cache, Wipe Dalvik etc.

I thought I will make one for myself. now that I have made and used it, I want to share it with others.

There are 4 zip files:
1) MegaWipe
2) SuperWipe
3) SimpleWipe
4) Factory Reset

All 4 serve different purposes.

  1. Megawipe: Use this zip to completely format your phone. It will delete everything in your phone and will bring it to bare bones. After it install any ROM for a fresh experience without any conflicts with in the frame work.It deletes the Data, Cache, System and Preload partitions of your internal memory. So Beware!
  2. SuperWipe: This is a simple factory reset and you can use it to move from one ROM to another without bothering about framework conflicts.It deletes the Data Folders and Cache partitions of your internal memory.
  3. Factory Reset: Use it to do a Factory Reset, which wipes your Data partition, Cache Partition and Dalvik Cache. It will delete everything on your Internal SDcard.
  4. SimpleWipe: A simple wipe is as the name suggests a Simple Cache and Dalvik wipe. You can use it to clear the said partitions before updating to a newer version of your ROM. Also, You can use it before you have flash a new ROM.

Also, I have read questions on how to completely wipe the phone..the MegaWipe zip will do it for you..just have a ROM to install on the ExtSdcard when you use it..

In CWM you have to manually do it by clicking 3 buttons..many of us forget to do it..and later when some apps crash..they dont know why..
This is one click utility which will do your work without bothering you which partitions to wipe..

Just asking after flashing mega wipe and then you reboot instead of flashing new rom, phone should get soft brick? If system and data appz were wiped?

After a MegaWipe you will not have a system to boot to..so please dont flash it untill you are quite sure what you want to do...have a ROM to flash at hand so that the system partition is recreated so that you can boot into it...
