Default How to erase/wipe optimus v or/and android

I want to erase my phone so I can sell it. How to I make sure none of my old personal information is on it or can be recovered?

I wiped my Sd card and I copied just the mod zip file I want on the phone.

I then rebooted into recovery.

and I formated:




and then installed from sd card the rom I want.

Is that it? I assume if I format boot that would be bad??

what about

If your going to sell it then:
Go to All Things Root Guide sticky. Select the guide on how to update to the ZV9 update. This will return the phone to a bone stock state with a stock recovery and no root access.
The buyer will be able to setup their own Google account and use the activate app.
