Already wipe Factory data, successfully flash purity ROM and gaps. After reboot. It stuck on the logo for 20 mins..... .and now still loading....

I already reboot the phone. Re flash the ROM again twice but the same thing happened

It's it normal? ?

Finally it takes over 50 mins but still in the four color circles.... I reboot and restore backup from cwm. (Lucky I backup before flash!!)

I am running on stock rom with franco r16 kernel.

I did not have a issue flashing latest purity clean install. Maybe a bad download/md5...

First install was a dirty flash but second time already wiped.
Do I need to wipe dalvik cache also ?

if you were already on purity than a dirty flash will suffice.

if you were not on purity then you need to perform a full wipe (data, system, dalvik, cache).

EDIT: i had typed full backup above. i obviously meant full wipe.

Thx .
So I need to "wipe data / factory reset" & "wipe dalvik cache " in cwm recovery , then flash new purity rom

Will it erase my files in sd storage ? eg mp3, jpeg movies ?

make a backup. make sure you have a copy of everything you want to save/keep on your computer. full wipe (twrp = data, system, dalvik, cache. cwm = wipe data, wipe cache, wipe dalvik, format /system). flash rom and gapps.

when you're coming from the stock firmware or a different rom, you have to perform a full wipe before flashing.
