Default [Q] How To Manually Wipe Data and Cache via CWM?

Hello all. Noob.

REFUSE V1.7 Installation instructions [LINK] states

"If you are coming from another ROM, manually wipe data and cache via CWM before installing."

Can anyone please explain this to me?

I am coming from a different ROM (Infused), and I cracking my skull here trying to understand what is CWM and how to get there and how to wipe the cache and data



Thanks!

If you install rom from sd card (its an option on rom manager) you'll get options to wipe data and what not.
