You should wipe as you normally would before you partitioned and also wipe SDEXT.

Sup Evo just wanted to confirm, what about backup on comp and just a hardreset from settings>SD&phone Storage>Factory data reset>erase Sd too. Would that be the same?

It's not the same. The partition will not be changed or removed by this operation.

Thanks that make sense, so we remove from recovery.
Reminds me of fedora and trying to install windows, grub won't let me until I removed /dev/sda1 or /hda0 etc; leaving only the O/S partition and boot from cd again, all this for nothing now since I just went ahead and decided to put the latest Ubuntu ver on it ? Lol!
