    How to completely reset phone

    This post is in relation to this post I made . It appears that nobody quite knows what to do, so imma try and figure it out xD

    How do I COMPLETELY reset my phone? I mean all code, data, everything currently on the phone is gone- I want it as if fresh from the box. I have flashed stock .sbf files a few times ( both FRG01D and FRG22D), and yet the issue from above still occurs. I am going to assume that my issue is based on software, so if I can clear all data on the phone and replace it, I assume my problem should be fixed.

    from my post in the rescue squad...
    Issue: After turning the phone on, or rebooting the phone, it resets (i.e. I am greeted by the "Welcome to Droid" screen and all personal data has been wiped. Sometimes I get numerous force closes ( usually Android Keyboard) while at this screen.

    How It Happened: Not eactly sure. To the best of my memory, it occured after I rooted my phone and installed CM ( 6.1 I think?). I was reading about extending battery life, and someone suggested altering End Button behavior in Spare parts, which I did, and when I rebooted after that it reset. However, I dont know if that may have been the only time since installing CM that I had turned my phone off/on.

    What I Have Done To Fix It: Too many things to recall. Removed CM, wiped many many time, I have unrooted it ( via RSDLite and flashing a .sbf file ( I tried for both FRG22D and FRG01B)), I have re-rooted it and tried different a few different ROMs and kernels. BB and a Chevy kernel was actually stable for a while... but I kept messing with my phone and tried different kernels and ROM's, and the problem resumed ( stupid me... ' If it ain't broken don't fix it').

    I friend of mine suggested that the actual internal flash memory needs to be wiped, but I am doubtful as I assume RSD Lite would have taken care of it.

    You could try loading up RZRecovery and grab a stock like ROM (MetiCkOne comes to mind) and boot into Rzrecovery and select "wipe all". There is so much wiping with that command you need a backup or ROM or sbf. The phone will not boot.

    I think that's as clean as it will get.

    No just that it would be as close to stock as possible no fancy kernels or whatnot

    No dice. It kinda worked once, but then it wouldn't boot. However, I was away, so I mabe if I try that wipe and flash a stock ROM on? Im not sure... I got annoyed though and flashed UD 3.0 and will enjoy that until I have to turn my phone off xD

    Does anyone have any other ideas? Could this be hardware based?
