+1 for sticky

This is one reason I like the cwm mods...all the wipe options are in one place

Hence, factory reset necessarily wipes dalvik but wipe dalvik only wipes the dalvik portion of the data partition?

Does anyone know the edify syntax off the top of their head to properly accomplish this? most of my attempts haven't seemed to work. would they all be formatted EMMC, even SDcard and system?

I prefer kush's recovery. And this is a feature as far as I'm concerned. I usually don't do system format but when doing beta or alfa testing this is a must.

Well technically you shouldn't have to but this thread is about a full wipe so to wipe any traces you need to wipe it.
