[Q] Clean flash
I always wondered, will flashing a clean ROM & restoring /data from the backup (previous version), be the same as dirty flashing but just longer?
Asking because some ROMs should be flashed clean every now and again - if bugs occur - but would flashing the ROM + GApps (+ Kernel) & restoring /data, avoid me from getting any bugs? After all, the system files are updated and the data restored is for apps and settings previously made.
