I have the original Motorola Droid. I have tried the Factory data reset option in the Privacy Settings menu with no luck. It seems to run through the process but when it powers back up, everything is just as I left it.
I have also tried doing a hard reset holding the x and power button. It will not go into recovery mode. Instead it just cycles through power up and power down.
Specs: totally stock phone (not rooted) / 2.1 - update 1
I need to reset so I can either sell or donate the phone without all my private info on it. The phone is no longer activated - would that make a difference?
Is there any way at all to reset this phone?? I have a macbook pro - is there a way for me to reset it through the data cable?
Can or should I reload the OS somehow? Root it?
Thanks for any help you can provide!
