    I have rooted my inc. Great work and seemed easy with all the guides!

    My only question is i want to perform a factory reset, how do I get the superuser.apk back and/or will I lose root?

    Any assistance will be greatly appreciated!!!!

    I did a factory reset after I performed a root and deleted some of the stock apps just for good measure. You do not lose root. Cheers

    Does a factory reset bring back apps that were removed after root such as City ID or FriendStream?

    Nope, as long as you removed them from /system/app they will not appear again

    I can only speak for me, but I suspect removing FriendStream has caused sync freezes on my phone. I won't know until I put it back, so we'll see.

    Other sources have said that after removing FriendStream you should disable Live Sync in the Facebook options (I don't even have Live Sync as an option anymore for some reason). Contacts pictures still update without any problems.

    FriendStream works with Facebook for HTC so yes, there will be some issues when the option for syncing the "Live Feed" in your "Accounts & Sync -> Facebook" section is enabled. This is one of the issues that I had when removing FriendStream.

    Blotto-

    You wouldn't happen to have the .odex file as well, would you?

    You have to go through the entire root process again so you're in adb shell in recovery. Then install with the cat command the same way you installed superuser.

    Do you also retain custom recovery when you factory reset?
