Hi guys,

An update of the Same ROM can usually be flashed over the top of the previous one without loss of data. Changing ROM requires a full wipe.

If in doubt ask the ROM dev.

as above, you shouldn't lose any data if it's the same rom.

get in the good habit of making a nandroid backup before you flash anything though, can be a lifesaver just in case they go wrong, or you don't like the upgrade
