    was just wondering if this would remove root permissions. i'm running the official 2.2

    Here are the exact steps to perform a factory reset, aka hard reset.
    [with phone off]

    • Press and hold the Home key+Power button simultaneuously.
    • From the Recovery screen (exclamation point with an Android figure), press the Search key.
    • use the Volume keys (up / down) to highlight and the Camera key to select.
    • Touch Yes -- delete all user data then touch Ok.
    • Allow the factory reset process to complete (approximately 1 minute).
    • Ensure reboot system now is highlighted then touch Ok.

    Root is system data not user data so a factory reset will not remove root.
