flash my shw-m110s .. Notice the I? This is exactly what I do. If it is not written here, then I didn't do it. I like everything nice and clean therefore when I flash everything gets wiped!
do is up to you
1. Go to "SD card and phone storage" - "Unmount SD card" - "Format SD card"
I, again notice the "I" format both External and Internal cards. All data on the sd cards will be erased!
2. Go to "Settings" - "Privacy" and select "Factory Data Reset"
3. Shut the phone down.
4. Take out the battery and put the battery back in.
5. Press "Home" + "Power"

7. Run Odin and press the "PDA" button.
8. Browse to the ROM file.
9. Connect the phone and wait for the yellow COM indicator.
10a. Press "Start" and wait.
If Odin fails then disconnect the phone from the computer, take out the battery, put the battery back in and go back to "Download Mode" or rather the phone may be in "Update Mode".
10b.Flash again, until "Pass"
After flashing the phone the first boot and reinitialising the new ROM takes time, so wait, maybe as long as 2 minutes. Sometimes during the first boot after flashing the Android animation will just go black. See "Won't Boot"
