Default [Q] Upgrading SlimRom 4.4.2 Build 4 to Build 5

I have SlimRom 4.4.2 Build 4 installed in my Note. I recently received a message saying that Build 5 was available so I downloaded the file and saved it in the SD Card. I want to upgrade to build 5, but have a question on how to do it.

Basically, the question is if I need to do the full wipe/factory reset and wipe cache, etc... and then flash the new rom and gapps, or if I can just wipe cahe, dalvik, etc and then just flash the build 5 rom?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Upgrading is just the matter of booting into recovery and flashing the updated rom.. Just make a nandroid backup before... You can wipe cache and need to data wipe unless you encounter problems.

In this case (without changing rom) dirty flash is perfectly enough.

Btw. There are detailed instruction how to upgrade rom on Slimrom website.
