    Complete Factory Reset for Phone

    Hello everyone!
    I want to do a complete reset on my phone to delete everything and start from scratch like I just bought the phone.
    I also want everything on my SD card to be deleted.
    I know the phone has the factory reset option, but will that wipe the SD card as well?
    My device is rooted, nothing flashed just rooted so I can underclock and overclock. How will doing this effect that?

    Before wiping the SD card, how can I save my pictures and videos the easiest?

    edit: Also will all of my contacts be saved? I have a razr maxx

    Thank you so much!

    Easiest way to save files from SD card is to transfer them to your computer.

    Your contacts are synced with your google account

    Factory resetting doesn't effect root, you will still be rooted. It also doesn't wipe the SD card, this can be done in the options for the SD card.
