Samsung Vibrant :: Does Factory Restore Really Wipe All Data?

Aug 30, 2010

I just did a factory restore on my Vibrant and afterwards, I noticed that there are folders of apps I used to have before the factory restore. Some folders are...EpicFail, FridayEscape, etc. I thought by doing a factory restore that all data were wiped oud. I would like a clean wipe of the hard drive and reload of the factory stuff. No rooting.

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?

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?

May 7, 2014

I have a Samsung galaxy S3 which is about a year old. About 2 days go i tried updating my software to Kit.Kat. It said update is complete but it just needs to reboot so i said yes.

I have tried connecting my phone to kies but i have had a problem with my phone connecting to the computer. I also don't want to restore to factory default because i don't want to loose all my photos.

General :: Samsung I699 - Restore Factory Default?

Mar 14, 2013

I am using Samsung i699 (android 2.3.6) in China, They preinstalled so many suck apps. After I rooted and removed a bunch of apps including system files, and then every time when I power on, it displays "Low Storage Space there is not enough storage space available to complete this action, clear some space and try again" Before remove some system files such as applications provider, kies, kies wifi and etc... it never had any problems. So here I have a question:

I want to restore factory default. When I press "restore factory default", it just restores my settings, or restores all the apps and systems files I deleted?

Samsung I7500 : Does Factory Reset Restore Orignal CSC File

Nov 27, 2009

Just wondering if doing a factory reset, or any other kind of reset, restores the original CSC. I removed it when I used Odin to update the phone a few months ago. I know I can use Odin again if I want to restore the CSC, I'm just not sure which CSC I need- does it have to match the firmware version, or is the CSC for a given carrier the same regardless of the firmware?

Samsung Vibrant :: Vibrant Connect To Wifi / Use It For Data / Calling?

Nov 13, 2010

This may seem like a really dumb question but I have been told several different things by several different people who should know. Does the Vibrant connect to a Wi-Fi and use it for data and calling? I have a Blackberry Curve at present and I have no reception inside my house. I connect my Curve to my Wi-Fi network and can do all data things and talk with zero dropped calls. I'm hoping to be able to do this with the Vibrant. If I can't I will have to consider another phone (I can't live with no reception in my house). I don't care if I can tether from it, I just need ot be able to use the Wi-Fi for data and calls on the handset.

Samsung Captivate : Used Odin To Restore Back To Factory / No Option For PC Internet

Oct 31, 2010

I did it last night, seemed to work fine, but I noticed something today. Under settings, applications, USB settings, there is an option for PC Internet that wasnt there originally. When I try to go to software update, it says Communication Failed. Unable to connect to ATT servers.

Coincidence that this started now, or is there something wrong? I reset the phone twice, and reloaded Odin twice. Everything else seems to work fine.

Samsung Vibrant :: Restore Contacts From Rom Backup

Nov 16, 2010

My first Android phone, so please forgive my ignorance if any. Rooted Vibrant, flashed from stock ROM to Obsidian V4. I did a "backup current ROM" before "install ROM from SD card" by using Rom Manager. The process went smooth, but after booting into the new ROM, I found that all my contacts were gone. Sync with google account won't help because most of the phone numbers are not tied with my gmail contacts.

Now, I want to know if there is any way to extract/restore my contacts without restoring to the saved backup. Actually, I tried restore but the phone did not boot after restore. Do I have to use Odin to boot my phone to solve this issue? And even if I succeed, will I see all my contacts?

Samsung Vibrant : Way To Find Vibrant Sales Data?

Jul 30, 2010

I'm curious to see how these are selling. I have this feeling they are not selling very well do in no small way to T-Mobile's complete lack of interest in marketing this phone. On launch day for instance at my T-Mobile store they made no mention of the Vibrant AT ALL. No displays, posters, floor model unit to play with, nothing. I see ads on tv constantly for the Evo and even the obscure Garmin phone that 3 people bought. I've never seen an ad anywhere for the Vibrant though.

Samsung Vibrant :: Backup - Restore All Apps And Settings

Sep 1, 2010

The micro usb port on my phone has gotten loose over the last few days, and so T-mo is sending me out a replacement phone. I would like to completely backup my phone (ideally to my dropbox folder) so I can easily restore all of my apps and settings on the new vibrant when it comes. I already have Astro, and have backed up my apps to my SD card. But I would like something more comprehensive, say the way Blackberry Desktop software can do a complete back up from one phone and restore it all to a different phone. What backup apps do you use?

I recently got the vibrant and am having the same issues that everyone is having. I tried some of the fixes for the GPS but still not working. I want to try one of the fixes and want to do a factory reset before I do it. How do I backup stuff like Sims 3 and Avatar and the other things that came with this phone? Will the touchwiz still be there? When I pay for apps, does it tie it to my gmail account so I can download them again later if I delete them?
