Question [Q] ROM question

Hello,

I recently put a custom ROM on my Galaxy Player. But I want to put a new ROM on my Player. Do I have to remove my current ROM? Or just flash the new ROM with odin, without removing the old one.
I've been searching on google, but I didn't find any clear answers.

Can someone please tell me this?

Thanks

Yes, but usually you want to do a factory reset deal with it, before and after flashing to new ROM. If you have a Nandroid backup, all you have to do is an advance restore and restore your previous data without all of the hassle.

Factory reset prior to flashing a rom would be enough in my experience... but I guess after wouldn't hurt either... your preference and time...

Default what ROM are you using successfully?

what RoM did you use? Do all hardware features work? (wifi, camera, etc)
Do you have the Player 4 or 5? US Version?

I have the 5" US version and want a newer version of android than the one that came with it. When will 4.0 be available in a custom ROM? Any ideas?

I think he was asking when an ICS port was gonna be available.

So far people are having a hard enough time getting CM7 or CM9 to port to our devices. So if ICS does make it to us, it's still a ways out.
