Just do a factory reset and a dalvik wipe. Cache is included in the factory wipe and system wipe can be dangerous

Nope. That all of it. Some people say to wipe multiple times, others say it makes no difference. Just make sure you don't accidentally wipe your sdcard in the process...that's a huge pain.

If you are switching to a completely different rom I recommend charging your battery till its full and make sure to do a battery stat wipe. Just to optimize your battery

When changing roms:
Just factory data reset in recovery
Dalvik/battery stats/rotate data if you want

When installing kernels:
wipe dalvik
wipe cahe if you want

You do not have to wipe multiple times....you will be wiping an EMPTY partition.

What's dangerous about wiping /system? I do it all the time, especially when moving from one ROM to a very different ROM.

Its only dangerous if you're not flashing a rom DIRECTLY after you wipe /system.
That kinda begs the question.... What else would you do after wiping your /system???

I always wondered what would happen if I tried booting up after a wipe.
