So using these directions will preserve data? I thought when you flash userdata you are wiping your data partition?

Followed your instructions to the letter and everything worked great, however, my device is only showing I have 6GB of total space on a 32GB model! I've never run into this problem before with all the roms and restores that I've done. Any suggestions?

I just noticed the same. I'm going to see if rooting and doing a complete wipe helps.
