Default wipe

Use advanced wipe, select every thing except internal storage to keep your files. Great job porting these roms.

Yep. Had to wipe data coming from Hashcodes CM11 and WiFi didn't want to connect straight away. It did connect after a while though.

I have also had a few graphical issues, in Play books app. Some of the menus are all dotty, then they pop to normal after a while.
