Default Factory reset

I am selling my tablet. Does the factory reset clear EVERYTHING? Thanks in advance.

A factory reset will clear out just about everything app wise, but files modified at the system level, such as root, will remain after a factory reset.

Other than for any OS upgrades you have done, it should return the tablet to how it was when you took it out of the box.

Pictures, movies, music etc on the SD card remain, so you'll want to do something with those.

uh...hmmm... nope - I think.

You know I don't REALLY remember, but I'm reasonably sure that it did not have one
Note that some of your pictures could be saved internally also, so you'll want to check there also. Look for 'camera' or 'dcim' folders.
Or connect it to your computer and have the computer scan for *.jpg files in that drive.

Hmmm. When you click on the reset button it says "It will erase all data from your internal storage."

To me that indicates that it *will* get rid of everything on internal storage including personal documents, pics, etc....

Who wants to be the Guinea pig and try and see?
