Post [Q] Does restore factory setting remove the custom rom inside the internal storage ?

Hi guys, sorry this my first post and i am a total beginner in this. I am planning to flash CyanogenMod, for my xperia sl but before i do that i must delete data/ restore factory settings right ? But if i do that wont it delete the img. file in the internal storage ? , since my xperia sl has no external storage or a partition on the device named "/sdcard" .... So where should i keep the the img.file then ? I am scared that if i proceed then all my files including the CyanogenMod rom is removed then i cant flash anything ...

This will not happen.

You should indeed wipe data (and wipe cache and dalvik cache) when installing a new ROM. The data on your SD card will remain there, like your music and other stuff. Just place the *img. file in the root folder.

Good luck with flashing your new ROM
