    I posted this in the hacks section but got no response. Hoping this section could bring a better outcome. My buddy is wanting to buy my phone, and he still wants it to stay rooted. All i want to do is just keep it rooted, but just delete all my sd card contents. How may I go about this? Am I being a complete noob? Would I be best to just sbf back to stock then re root?

    Format SD card and leave rom unless he wants to change it...flashing new sbf will more than likely lose root

    do you want all your user data on phone deleted?
    install root keeper from market
    run protect root
    wipe data in android recovery and then reinstall rootkeeper select restore root
    should be good

    settings/ storage
    unmount sd card
    format card

    edit: if custom rom is installed
    can just wipe data
    from android recovery and still be rooted

    I wiped cache/data but now I'm getting the issue of not being able to delete my Google account. Its telling me I need to do a "factory restore".

    factory restore is same as wipe data
    and wipe data should have removed google account
