Default Philz Recovery Question

When Installing a New Rom, Do I have to perform "Wipe data/Factory Reset"?

Or Can I just Click the "Clean to Install New Rom"?

Wipe data/factory reset is classic full wipe (wipe data, cache&dalvick)
Clean to Instal new ROM include full wipe + wipe system and I think internalSD

And you can choose
Samsung Galaxy SIII
Omega ROM (4.3) v58; Boeffla kernel 5.2; TWRP recovery; Nova launcher Prime; S5 theme; Xposed

As above but does not wipe internal SD card..

Also be careful with wipe to install a new rom this wipes your system so make sure you have a rom ready to flash on your sd card

(1) First rule of flashing roms BACK UP YOU EFS!!
(2) 2nd Rule of flashing roms SEE 1ST RULE!!

(3) EFS Issue look here >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...uding-t2393289
(4) Rescue Firmware look here >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...35&postcount=6

Thanks for the clarification. I was not sure, because I prefer TWRP
And also as you said. Make sure to have a ROM. Otherwise the phone wil bee bootloaped.
