    More info would be helpful, and some clarification about what exactly you mean by "factory reset". If you are talking about going back to unrooted-stock, rooted-stock, or starting over with a complete wipe and a new ROM; there are several threads about this that a search will turn up.

    What problems are you having and what ROM are you using?

    If you are rooted and have a custom recovery installed I believe a wipe of Data and Cache and then a reboot would be the way to go, it sounds like you are already prepared to set your device back up if you were contemplating a factory reset, try this first.

    Can you boot into recovery and restore the backup you previously made or did the update.zip you installed remove your recovery image?

    So it sounds like you have the stock recovery now, "Easy Root" is problematic from what i've seen. Check the link in my sig. You can revert back to 2.0.1 the flash SPR.sbf and install any rooted Rom you like.

    Agreed, this sounds like a good suggestion. I've seen several posts from folks who used EasyRoot and are seeing all sorts of odd things, and I haven't found a detailed explanation of what exactly it is doing.

    I would agree that the best likely plan of attack here if going to be to go back to stock 2.0.1, or 2.1, flash SPRecovery with RSD and start the whole thing over.

    Todiefor111-I didn't mean to sound harsh in my original response, I just wanted to make sure we all had enough info to try to give you good advice. Good luck, let us know if you need more help.
