As soon as I boot into the bootloader it automatically executes update on PG58IMG.zip and then tells me that the CID is incorrect and I have to restart. fastboot devices and adb devices don't give me anyting back. Should I try to mount the SDCARD directly and delete the PG58IMG.zip will I then be able to run the bootloader normally and connect to my phone via fastboot?
Just take the SD card out, perform super CID and then put it back in.
If you're reading this, congrats. You are better at reading than most of these forums.
All ROMs should always wipe /system. A "patch" won't wipe /system. When he says no wipe required, that's referring to a /data wipe. Things have always been this way. It doesn't make sense otherwise.
Correct. Wipe always user data. /system will be formatted every single time you flash unless a package is explicitly labeled a patch.

I'm not saying that's what's happened here, but it is not necessary to always wipe /system.
It is necessary. People apply all kinds of changes to /system, via mods, addons, etc. Formatting system and flashing all contents makes sure you are in an absolute, known state.
Wipe has always referred to *user* data. When you're flashing a ROM, every partition other than /data and /sdcard is fair game. No ROM should ever touch the two of those. As for /system, /cache, boot, etc, never assume they will persist when you flash anything.
Just dropping by to say the latest ROM is working perfectly. I full wiped as I came from another ROM.
Thanks RMK! Very much appreciated!
