It means you wipe system partition. This is typically in mounts/storage in recovery or "format" ... it basically is like deleting all files in that directory.

Now I feel even more confident installing ROM's. I'll remember to use that MD5 Checker app the next time I think about installing a ROM.

Thanks very much, this is a great guide for newbs like myself. I almost bricked my SGS3 and by the grace of god was able to fix it, but not without reflashing several times, and even going back to stock and then re-rooting.

This is a must, and a great reference for anyone, whether old or new to rooting.

Thanks again!
