Default [Q] How to switch from Purexsp rom to niaboc's new rom

Hi guys,

I have the latest firmware of the SP and I flashed the PureXsp Rom following the steps so I rooted using doom lord method etc

However, now I want to switch to niaboc's rom but I do not want to lose my apps and data on the phone. Is there any way to do that?

Additional Info: Bootloader is locked and I have flashed a dual recovery so I have CWM and TWRP and TWRP touch

Any help will be appreciated

I am new to this so please don't hate if I have said something stupid

Best regards
Kay

Just flash the ROM..
wipe /system and /cache and /dalvk-cache and flash and reboot the phone

Do I flash my recovery back again too? I remember that I had to flash recovery and the rom and then reboot... Is that correct or will the recovery not need flashing?

And wiping system and the cache won't that erase apps?
