Motorola Droid X :: Does Factory Reset Cause Data Lost

Sep 24, 2010

A friend is having trouble with the 2.2 OTA, he lost his phones ringing ability, I was gonna suggest a factory reset but he thinks VZW said this will cause him to lose data, like all his apps. Is this correct? If so is there a better solution to try first?

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?

HTC Incredible :: Way To Keep Data After Factory Reset?

Sep 2, 2010

I have not yet gotten the OTA update for 2.2 on my phone, but I am assuming that it will be here soon and once I do get it I am also assuming that I will most likely need to do a factory reset after reading all the problems that members on here are encountering. Now I already have AppBrain installed and have my apps synced to my online account so I can easily download them again if I do a factory reset. My questions however though are the following 1) Is there any way to preserve application data such as the notes I had in a notepad application before doing a factory reset? 2) Is there any way to keep calendar data and contact data if they were inputted as phone data entries and not synced via Google?

HTC Incredible :: Froyo Factory Reset Not A True Reset

Sep 27, 2010

Why a Froyo factory reset really isn't (plus, a fix for upgrade issues) | Android Central Its in reference to the X but I am going to factory reset tonight and see what happens."If you're one of those folks who is less than pleased with your Droid X after the Froyo update, this one's for you. Android Central Forums member Fabrian was at wit's end, and even talked of ditching his X (blasphemy!) because of the random bugs, general weirdness, and plain old unsatisfactory performance of his unit since the update.His last-ditch effort and ingenuity seems to have paid off. The secret? He has completely disabled the Froyo feature that restores data from previous installs. It's really just a matter of turning off the automatic restore feature before logging back into your Google account. It's a little odd that "Automatic Restore" is still checked by default, even when "Back up my data" isn't, but there you go.The method isn't too painful and does require one more factory reset, but the payoff appears to be a much smoother experience. Makes sense, too restoring data from Eclair to Froyo probably isn't a very good idea even if it is convenient.

We've verified it here, a hard reset in Froyo isn't really a hard reset, as things come back by themselves. Follow Fabrian's instructions, and you will have a pristine Froyo installation on your Droid X (or Nexus One -- Sense on Froyo has no setting for this that we could find). Any troublemaking leftovers will be no more, and won't get downloaded and installed automatically again. If you're being plagued with myriad tiny bugs in your Droid X after the update, give it a try! [Android Central Forums] Thanks Fabrian, nice sleuthing!"

Android :: Programmatically Perform A Factory Reset On Droid Device?

Mar 19, 2010

Understanding how incredibly dangerous this question is, I'd like to know if it is possible to programmatically issue a factory reset, as available in Droid and G1. Does anyone know how this is implemented? Is this implemented using the standard Android SDK, a Motorola-specific function, or something else?

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?

Android :: Could A Factory Data Reset Unroot A Mytouch?

Jul 31, 2010

I bought a mytouch yesterday off craigslist, the kid said he had someone root it for him on 2.2 Before he gave it to me, he did a factory data reset to erase all his contacts, messages, info, etc. He gave it back to me and I had to set up the phone all over again (make a google account), so when I had that setup, I went to look up the phone info and saw that the firmware version was now 1.6. Could this have caused it to unroot?

HTC Droid Eris :: Factory Data Reset Changed

May 24, 2010

After months of being really happy with 1.5, I ran with OTA 2.1 for about a week.... hated it! While I didn't see any outright bugs, the phone had hugely sluggish response, very poor battery life, etc. Finally decided to to the Factory Data Reset this morning, and voila - lovin' my Eris again.

Things to note:

Before Factory Data reset w/ 2.1 OTA:
- Phone uptime and awake time were almost equal (not good)
- Had the 50% without signal message
- 'Android System' always listed as top user of battery usage (60-70%)
- Even while idle, phone always felt 'warm' (like it was continually running a background process, as evidence by poor battery life)

After Factory Data reset w/ 2.1 OTA:
- Phone uptime and awake time now as expected (awaketime < uptime)
- No more 50% signal message
- Cell Standby and Phone Idle now top users of batter usage.
- Phone now cool to the touch while idle

One thing to note is even after the reset, I still had issues syncing Gmail contacts, and needed to delete the contacts cache.

While I won't conjecture about root cause, I'm hoping Google and VZ learn from this experience, as much of this mucking about is *way* beyond what most 'normal' users would put up with. My wife loves her iPhone and just laughs at me dealing with all this c**p. Besides, I can't remember the last time *she* had to reboot her phone..

General :: Android 4.3 - Factory Reset And Keep Data Of Some Apps

Dec 15, 2013

I recently updated my android to 4.3. A lot of people say that if you get a big update, it is the best to do a factory reset for faster performance. Is that true?

If that is the case, is there a way to do a factory reset and keep some data of some apps? Like example, i have an app that I spend my money on to buy ingame items and such. If i do a factory reset, all my ingame items will be gone and have to restart everything.

is there a 100% safe backup and do a factory reset for me to keep my app data?

General :: Deleting Individual App Data Or Factory Reset?

May 1, 2014

I have a couple different devices to sell (one on stock JB 4.1.2 and one on CM 10.2.1) and I would prefer not to factory reset them. If I go through each individual app and clear its data and cache and also delete any accounts I have set up (e.g., Facebook, Gmail), does that get rid on my identifying information the same as a factory reset would?

Motorola Droid X :: Factory Data Reset Made Phone Worse / Fix It

Sep 13, 2010

so i had been having problems with the whole random rebooting issue that some people on the droid x have been having, so i called tech support and i had tried everything that they had suggested except the factory data reset. i was hesitant to do that because it just seems like doing something like that would never let me get my phone to working the way that it used to work. you know the way i had everything set up. well after the phone kept rebooting on its own i decided i would give it a shot. sure enough the phone just doesnt seem to be running the same as it did before. the phone seems to lag more, i am having to touch icons several times at times to make them work. task killer isnt running the way that it should. it just seems like the factory data reset made everything on the phone work just a little bit worse. has anyone else had this experience?
