    Hi guys!

    Always wondered what is the proper way of updating the MIUI. As I always want to stay with the latest version, but don't want to reinstall all of the apps. Should I always make a backup in MIUI options and then in CWM Recovery:

    * wipe data/factory reset
    * wipe cache
    * wipe dalvik cache

    Or can I just skip factory reset in CWM ?

    As far as i understand you can just flash the new version over the old one. If there's a problem afterwards you can start whipping cache(s), fix permissions or do a factory reset, whipe cache(s) and re-flash the new one...

    Okay. So it's not necessary to wipe data, cache, etc. before any new update?

    The best way to update is to use the MIUI "Updater" app thats pre installed when you root to MIUI. Thats what I used today to get the 1.10.28 update version
