Lightbulb [MOD]Superwipe

This is a modified wipe. What does it do? It prepares your phone for flashing a new ROM, or an updated ROM where the developer has requested a full wipe.

This zip will wipe /boot /data /system /cache and /devlog. Dalvik-cache is stored in /data so it gets wiped with /data.
It will then reformat those partitions optimally, which should give a slight increase in filesystem speeds. YMMV, seems to be a definite improvement for me, but could be placebo.


Credit for the Format options to TrevE as noted in the zip file.

Note: This is a COMPLETE ROM wipe. The only things it leaves alone are your SD Card(s). I recommend using this before flashing a new ROM. I also recommend you nandroid just in case.


Also if using TWRP, under settings, tell it to use rm -rf for restores, or it will overwrite the format options that are set up.

I take no responsibility if your phone explodes in your hand, burns down your house and eats your dog.

Nor do I take any responsibility for anything else. Use at your own risk.

Let me know if there are any issues please.


Edit: Updated Superwipe. Now wipes /boot, and all extraneous pauses have been removed.

Good deal. Since I never heard anything negative from you folks who downloaded it I decided to give it its own thread, since it doesn't matter what ROM you're using.

Dalvik is in /data so it gets wiped automatically. I'll update the OP though.
