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.
