But what/how would I wipe without harming root if I was coming from another rom and trying this one .15?
first off let me start by saying you cannot wipe root per say off your phone. you can flash a rom which doesnt have root but you cannot just do a wipe of your phone and remove your root access.
having said that I would pay close attention to the threads that you get your roms out of and make sure they have root.
Most roms it is not needed to wipe before installing the same rom but just newer version but is recommended.
if your coming from lets say leedroid and want to install this rom I would always do a wipe.
