Default HEY YOU!! Thinking about a Factory Reset??? READ this first!!!! [Exit Recovery D/L inside]

Follow these steps for a successful factory reset.




Step 1

Make sure.......that you are sure........that you are positive.........you want to do this.



STEP 2

Oh......What's this? Settings. Privacy. Factory Reset. Well that was easy enough to find huh?


**STOP RIGHT THERE**
before you start a global thermonuclear war!!!!!


---DON'T do factory resets through the settings menu on the phone if you are rooted and have CWM(Recovery) Flashed!!!!!!----

Do you understand that? Repeat after me so i know you understand!

I,____________, Will NOT do a factory reset through Settings/Privacy ever again on my Rooted/Recovery Flashed Lg-Esteem.




STEP 3

You know that little thing called ClockworkMod that you flashed through ROM Manager to Install, backup, restore, etc.......?

Well that little option called Wipe data/Factory Reset is the same as doing it in the settings menu except you won't get SCREWED in the process.

**NOTE**

Wiping data and factory resetting when you have a custom ROM installed will reset the ROM you have flashed. It WONT flash the stock OEM Rom that comes with the phone.



TIP

Make sure you have FLASHED Cwm through ROM Manager before using the (Power+Vol/UP&DOWN) combo. Obviously if you try this and you DONT have CWM installed where is it going to go? To hell that's where. Pull your battery about 5 times until a higher power decides you worthy of having your phone back again, throw salt over your left shoulder, send out three smoke signals, do 5 jumping jacks, take 2 Advil, wave at a squirrel outside until he waves back and eventually your phone will boot as normal. **The last step is very important. If the squirrel doesn't wave back then it wont work and you will have to start all over.



STEP 4

Thank me for saving you from a migraine.

Seriously! Thank me O.o

I'm not kidding. I will find you. I will invoke Satan to empty your post count and replenish mine. After I take your soul first of course.





**EXIT RECOVERY**


IF you did do the unthinkable and reset your phone through the settings menu, put this on your SD card and LEAVE IT THERE while you own your esteem.


Download
Zippyshare.com - exitrecovery.zip

Flash it through recovery and you will be good to go.

Once the phone boots
Go sit in the corner and think about what you've done. Let out a sigh of relief because your Daddy and Uncle Fuzzy just saved your buttocks. When you think you can play well with others and NEVER reset through the settings menu, you can come back out and play. Make the same mistake twice and you have no idea what kind of hell will be bestowed upon you.




Your delusional local AF resident,

Fuzzels

You should add if you are only rooted (no cwr or rzr) do NOT try to do a factory reset via the button combo...I actually did do this one. I forgot I only rooted my other esteem thats on ZVC and didnt install CWR and the button combo will send you into a stock recovery boot loop. I forgot how I got out of it tho. Think I just kept pulling the battery and putting it back in till it booted normal

That's how I learned not to lol, I tried to factory reset and I actually DID screw my phone up lol, did hundreds of battery pulls Nothing worked, so I went through the living hell that is setting up lgnpst and putting stock back on, breaking it again (somehow I was stupid enough to do it a second time because I forgot I was completely stock and I tried to flash Gingersteem extreme... didn't end to well lol, took me awhile to set it back up) after months of lurking, I decided to make an account! Then went premium! That, my fellow esteemers, is the story of my account XD

I'm going to ask stupid questions now. =)

1. What if you have ROM Toolbox and you don't have ROM Manager?
2. If you flashed a ROM and you don't see CWM in your apps list... then what?
Do you install it and then do the whole volume up/down power thing to flash it again?
Would that not reset your phone???

Trying to think of more questions here..

Damn I don't know how to lmao.

1. ROM Manager doesn't show up in the Apps list - now what?
2. Since it doesn't show up in the apps list and it doesn't appear to be downloaded on the phone, does that mean when you DO download it you have to flash it using the volume up/down and power keys on the phone?
3. If you DO flash CWM (using the volume up/down and power keys) will it wipe everything off of your phone and you'll have to start anew again (by anew I mean have to reroot etc)?

Does that make more sense Fuzzy??

Well if you haven't downloaded rom manager then you can do it from the play store and from there just open it up. It'll have an option called "Install recovery" select that and it will bring up a box that has phone names. Scroll till you see "LGE Esteem" select it and it should flash recovery for you. It also has an option to reboot into recovery, but its better to know how to do it manually too.
I would reboot into recovery first to make sure its flashed so that way you'll be confident in doing it manually.

dont forget, while your in recovery.... BACK UP, do not leave cwm and boot back up until you do that!!! it may just save your a$$....

if you need help with the above posts.... maybe your best bet is to leave your phone untouched/stock....

and lurk, read, reply! theres not a single time i have been here, or the ascend threads, and havent learned something new about my phone

Default Factory reset in cwm only!!!!

Root users should never factory reset in the settings/privacy menu. You will go into a boot loop. If this happens put this on your sd and flash it http://dl.dropbox.com/u/50330810/exitrecovery.zip

Always factory reset in cwm.

I don't know what else to do to prevent this. It happens way too often. Guess we can try and keep this post in plain sight for the less informed to see. Idk what else to do???

Thank you


P.s. Sticky please?

Will merge it with your first one http://androidforums.com/esteem-all-things-root/559831-thinking-about-factory-reset-read-first.html#post4477276

and stick it-change the title and move exitrecovery.zip to the OP of that one I suppose.

Default Reset from privacy factory reset

Didn't thoroughly test it afterwards.
But from what I saw it didn't boot loop. I did this on the esteem I returned to Esperance. All I noticed was it was in the out of the box experience setup. Was I just fortunate that time? Or does it sometimes not boot loop? I didn't have cwm installed on my old phone.
Could cwm being installed have anything to do with it? It was rooted.
My current phone is rooted but it also has cwm installed.

Most phones install CWM and root all in one. AIO. We have a root method that does that.

So usually if you have 1, you will have the other

And yes, it's because of CWM.

Default So as long as you factory reset from cwm this wont happen

Not everyone has aio. The install wouldn't work for me. I Installed flashed cwm through rom manager.

But I can attest that on my old phone which was only rooted with no rom manager or cwm installed the privacy system restore worked fine. I'd say once you install rom manager and cwm you now have to factory reset through cwm. I recommend a stock nandroid backup once rooted before debloating to revert back then or installing a custom rom.

Welcome to Android Forums iLovCake
I Love that name BTW
Yes there is:
There are other options but IMO still the best way is to just downgrade it
[GUIDES] Downgrade ZVD/ZVC To ZVB/Emer. PB Recovery
Pure stock unrooted

You would need a sd card reader for your computer to transfer it or a different device with internet access to put it on the sd that way.

Ok..what I meant was flashing the exitrecovery.zip in the op in recovery. Or since it boots to recovery just pick a ROM from the ATR sticky below-put it on the sd-and when it boots to recovery install it. Just choose one based on your version.zvb..zvc..zvd
