General :: Data Wipe / Reset Through ADB?

Mar 30, 2012

what exactly does a data reset do? Does reformat (a) partition(s)? If so, which? If not, which files/directories are removed; What exactly IS deleted? Second, how would I do a data reset through ADB?

My screen is basically broken. It works for a split second when first starting up (cold boot), and flickers off and doesn't turn on. Everything else works. I'm planning to resell for parts; I think I've invested way too much for this phone (screen broke before, and then got stolen, and now broken screen again). I would like to erase all data on the phone. I would normally do this through Clockwork recovery, but can't on the account of being blind due to broken screen.

I did come across this thread, but it still left me questions. Is reformatting system necessary? How would reflash my ROM via ADB? What about wiping Dalvik cache? Is dalvik stored within the cache partition?

As for the phone itself:

Samsung Galaxy S Epic 4G (Sprint)
RandomROM Thunkderhawk 3.5
USB Debugging enabled.

General :: Wipe Data Factory Reset Directly From Device

Apr 25, 2013

I have a generic (unbranded) tablet here. The user has used too many pattern attempts. I do a lot of these where I just wipe the device for people.

Sometimes I use key combos and sometimes i use ADB to boot into recovery and then simply select the "wipe data / factory reset option"

However, this tablet has no keys , no volume keys that is, so i used ADB to boot it into recovery which it did just fine.

How can i select "wipe data" when i can't use volume keys to select it? the touch screen is unresponsive in this mode too

I have tried

ADB SHELL WIPE DATA

but i get a permission denied error

I have tried running

ADB ROOT

but i get a "cannot run as root in production build" error

I have tried to root the tablet with super one click by short fuse but it crashes.

so i am basically asking is it at all possible to do a wipe data / factory reset on a device which is not rooted through ADB?

Motorola Droid :: Factory Reset With Data Wipe

Apr 8, 2010

After I received the OTA to 2.1 I have noticed more lag when scrolling between home screens, using 2D games is painful with the framerate reduction, and many items that are running in the background without me ever starting them. I also cannot seem to keep them closed either. I can also say that I am getting worse battery life now than I was with 2.0.1. I was wondering what would actually happen if I rebooted into Recovery Mode and did a Factory Reset with Data Wipe. Would this possibly help with the update causing these problems that were not there before?

Is this phone recoverable.

General :: How To Securely Wipe Data From Phone Internal Partition

Sep 26, 2013

how to sanitize my phones' internal memory.

I have an HTC ONE, and a Samsung Galaxy S4 that I am trying to sell. I know that it's fairly easy to recover data from a wiped partition by using programs like "TenorShare Android Data Recovery", unless data has been written over them at least once.

I had taken pictures of some documents containing highly sensitive data with the phone, and would like to make sure that those documents are not recoverable by the next user.

Neither of them have the USB Mass Storage option in the settings, so I can't just use some secure wipe program.

General :: Galaxy S2 Screen Broke / Access Or Wipe Data

Nov 7, 2012

My galaxy S2 fell and my digitizer is apparently non-working - I can see the screen sort of, but there is no touch response.

Anyway, I can't let just about anyone who I take it to have access to my data, since my contacts are stored on the google cloud, I have them all anyway, but I either need to:

1. Access the phone via PC and wipe the data by emulating the screen on my PC.

I tried using Kies air to do it - it recognizes the phone, but I can't open it through it because my phone is locked and it won't give me access otherwise. Of course I can't unlock it since the digitizer is dead.

I tried using software like droid-at-screen, installing the proper SDK components, BUT the phone never got recognized. It is my deduction that I have to enable USB debugging, which, again, I can't do since I don't have the touch interface.

2. The other solution would be to wipe all data manually, which I assumed was done holding the 2 volume buttons + power button, but all that ever got me to was the lock screen along with a "safe mode" in the corner.

General :: Unable To Wipe Data From Samsung Galaxy I9003

Jan 21, 2012

Samsung Galaxy i9003. The phone was on stock firmware 2.2.1 but it was having a lot of FCs and sudden restarts. Also, my friend wanted to upgrade it to Gingerbread.

I managed to flash a stock firmware 2.3.4 Arabic into the phone through Odin. I selected re-partition, then in 3e recovery mode I wiped both partition cache and user data.

However, when the phone booted, it was upgraded to 2.3.4 as it should but all the data and apps were kept as they are! I tried a factory reset from setting and still all the data remain intact.

I booted into recovery again and wiped all data but all remain the same! I flashed the stock firmware again using Odin and still no data were wiped! I even formatted the internal storage with no luck...The phone wasn't rooted, how this is possible?

General :: FTFs Flashtool Does Not Show File List And Neither Wipe Cache Or Data

Dec 19, 2012

OK, before I start, it's about an LT15i. I don't know what's happening, but at some .FTFs Flashtool does not show the file list (middle column) and neither "wipe cache" or data and one FTF has the "wipe cache" option only. This is really annoying. Tutorials specify a download link for a specific FTF and after starting Flashtool and selecting the flash option, that FTF is not showing up properly. Should I download an earlier version of the program?

General :: TWRP On SGS2 T989 - Backups / Rotation Data Under Wipe Menu?

Jul 9, 2012

I have a few questions about TWRP. I have been using it for a while now on my SGS2 t989 hercules variant and I like it alot but there are some things I am not sure about.

First when I make backups is it okay to only backup the System,Data,boot for regular backups? Or Should I just check everything system,data,boot,recovery,cache,.android_secure,sd-ext? Also if I make a data backup is that okay to restore after flashing a new rom instead of using titanium? I would think not but I want to know for sure.

Next thing is under the wipe menu, what is rotation data? I have never heard of it before. So should I wipe it once in awhile when I wipe the cache and dalvik?

HTC Eris :: Will A Factory Reset / Wipe Unroot My Phone?

Oct 31, 2010

I bought an Inc on Friday and I love it, best phone I've ever owned. Although my Eris, being my first android, will always hold a place in my heart, lol. My question to the brilliant minds here, If I factory reset and wipe data will it unroot my Eris? I'm selling my Eris tomorrow and advertised it as rooted. I just want to make sure it will still be rooted once I reset/wipe to remove all my info, contacts, etc. P.S. Wanted to thank all the wonderful users in here who have helped me understand and love the android OS. Scary Alien, Erisuer1, Frisco, Dooglad, and everyone else who I haven't mentioned. You're all class acts and I wouldn't know half of what I know if it wasn't for ALL of you
