    The buyer wants it left rooted.

    How do I wipe out all my data and keep the rom and root?

    I sold my friend my rooted D1 and I had the same problem but he just did a factory reset thru the settings and it cleared everything and it remained rooted

    Boot into recovery and do a factory data reset. Hold x and the power button to get into recovery then scroll down and select wipe data/factory reset, and then wipe cache.

    So basically I can leave it rooted and do a factory reset?

    And all my.stuff will safely be removed?

    Yes. You will still keep root but remove all your data

    Old thread but quick question.

    From a security standpoint is factory reset while staying rooted good enough?
    should I wipe sd card too?

    If you're giving the SD card with the phone then I would wipe it if I were you. That way anything you have on there will be gone too when you hand it over.

    I got $30 for my rooted X running MIUI. Simply explained that they have the ability to flash it to stock, the Rep laughed and agreed.
