    I'm about to give my Moto Droid to my cousin. I go into Settings/Privacy/Factory Reset which should reset my google account, delete all the apps, etc, etc. I hit Reset Phone, it restarts my phone, and that's it. Everythings still there. How do I actually wipe my phone?

    Reboot into recovery (power off, power on while holding x) Then hit camera +volume up button. Once in recovery wipe data and cache.

    Thank you. I totally forgot all about that. What exactly does the Settings/Privacy/Factory Reset option do then? Cause after I did that I noticed no difference at all...

    If you want it to be stock no root you have to flash a stock frg22d. One of the rom dev's has it on there page. Just don't remember which one it was

    Holy crap, talk about an unnecessarily large signature...

    Most be because you're rooted. Factory reset completely wiped my phone back to how it was when I first bought it.

    And I'll second the comment about the ridiculously large signature (both in file size and dimensions)
