[Q] CWM Recovery and wipes

view story

http://forum.xda-developers.com – In ClockworkMod Recovery, can someone please clarify what is the difference between these two wipes : Wipe data / factory reset Wipe cache partition I've just tried to flash a new build of AOKP without using none of these and i had problems like the google bar disappeared from my home screen and force closing in some apps. I know it is recommended to do both wipes when updating the rom, but i just wanna know what is the difference between them and if i can try to wipe one before another to do a dirty flash. Thanks (HowTos)
