I flashed the leaked ICS RUU, and I'm S-Off. I'm now running Energy's 2.1 ICS ROM, and I want to try different ICS ROMs. If I were to flash the Android Revolution ICS ROM, would I need to go back to stock ICS?

I know if I want to flash Energy's 2.2 ROM, I'd just flash it over my current 2.1 ROM.

I think you just need to flash super wipe script then flash the android ROM.

Oh okay, cool. Also, do I absolutely NEED 4EXT to flash this, or is Xboarder's recovery okay?

you need 4ext to flash mikes rom but xboarders recovery worked fine for energy and speedrun for me.

4ext takes care of it. You don't HAVE to buy the app. 4ext also has wipe menu with format all partitions (except sd card) option which works the same as superwipe.

Rule of thumb, its always best to backup and wipe whenever you switch between ROMs for a clean install (unless u are flashing an update of your existing ROM). It doesn't take more than 6 minutes to backup and wipe. It's always worth it and you can always advance restore /data from a backup if needed
