Default [Q] [ROM] Can I switch between Cyanogenmod-based ROMs without having to factory wipe?

Hey guys, I am new to the forum I have an HTC One M7 running Carbon, and am loving it--it is possibly the best ROM out there at the moment. However, I am curious about possibly trying out OmniROM sometime soon, just to see what it brings to the table for me. Since the two are both based off of Cyanogenmod 11, would it be possible to install OmniROM without having to lose all of my settings and factory reset my phone? I was able to do this seamlessly between CM nightlies, so I am wondering if this would also apply to related ROMs. Thanks for you guys' help

Well it's very hit and miss. Sometimes it works fine sometimes not. Do a nandroid backup first and give it a go
