Default Factory Restore Root

Is there any way to factory restore my LG Phoenix to exactly the way I bought it new? I rooted my phone and deleted AT&T contacts address book 2.2 and would like to have it back. Can I use a program like Odin one click?

Please note that all data will be deleted from the LG Phoenix as a result of this procedure. This process may or may not delete data stored on the microSD card. We recommend backing up all of your personal data before proceeding.

This is how to factory reset the LG Phoenix to clear all data and restore its original factory default settings.

Factory Data Reset on Menu Settings:

1. From Home screen, select menu
2. Select Settings, then Privacy
3. Select Factory data reset
4. Select Reset phone
5. Enter the password if prompted, then select erase everything

If the LG Phoenix is frozen, Try to do a hard reset through button combination:

1. Shut the power OFF or pull the battery out and reinsert it again
2. Press and hold the Power button and Volume Down button until the device turns on
4. A menu like Fastbook, Recovery, Clear Storage, and Simlock appears.
5. Just select Clear Storage by pressing the Volume Down button
6. Then Press and release the Power button
7. Confirm: Volume Up for YES and Volume Down for NO

That's it! just wait 'till the phone completely reboots.
Once the wipe is complete, the LG Phoenix will then return back to its factory fresh state settings.

Will this actually restore deleted programs or just reset to defaults?

THIS WILL NOT RESTORE A ROOTED PHONE!!!!!!!!!

This process only restores a non-rooted phone back to "factory defaults".

You need the original "image file" to return this phone to its factory state.

Good luck! Rooting your phone probably voided your warranty!
