    Installing Rom on Atrix

    I am using CWM to install a new rom on my ATRIX...it is asking me (and this is the 1st time I have seen this) about Wipe Options...what do i want to do:
    1) Cache and Dalvi
    2) System and Cache
    3) Full Wipe

    I would like to keep my CWM intact in case I do not like this ROM and want to revert back to the stock. The ROM I am attempting to install is:
    aokp_olympus-ota-eng_Milestone_1_b2

    EDIT:
    When answering this (if you can/know) will you be so kind to explain what each option means?

    If it's a new rom, the do a full wipe. If it's a new version of the same rom (i.e. update) you can usually get by with cache and Dalvic wipe. In any case, CWM will not be wiped by any of the options.

    It's a new ROM I have been running the Stock ROM and wanted to try this one out. I'll run a full wipe. Thanks!!

    I know I have asked this before, but I can't find the answer now, how can I install all of my apps, texts etc onto the new ROM I just installed?

    You need to download Titanium backup or MyBackupPro and do a backup of your apps (do not back up system). Then after you install the new rom, you can get the backup program and restore the apps and data.

    If you don't do this, then go to Google Play -> my apps and download your programs again.

    Your contacts should be restored via Google (assuming you use google to manage your contacts)

    Texts can be restored with MyBackupPro or other SMS saving programs. Check Google Play for one that works for you. If you don't back them up prior to wiping, the texts, call log, and other lists will be gone.

    Or, if you have a it backed up on a hard drive, PC, etc, you can simply install apps without having to redownload them from a market(saves much time & data usage if you have either large or many apps to reinstall. I'm just not much of a "cloud" person. I periodically make a backup of entire phone contents, just in case it rains
