Factory doesnt seem to be factory
Yeah, see I've done "factory". Factory still leaves traces of the old install. Old empty folders, old not-so-empty folders. I mean is there a way to do like what you would do with a hard drive and Linux. Full format. Blank the whole dang thing, install android to a completely fresh empty drive.
I know using multiple roms SHOULDNT cause any fragmentation issues, but I swear my phone just gets buggier and buggier each time, even using roms I have used before. And yes, again, I do ALL the required wipes and cleanings and permission fixes (as needed) before each rom install.
