    Well the title basically says it all.. In looking to sell my galaxy tab 10.1. But first I want to wipe all my information off of it.. Set everything back to default before I sell it.... Not sure on how to do this so when I sell it none of my personal info is still on it. any instructions on how to do this would be greatly appreciated.

    Go to settings then click on privacy and select Factory data reset.

    You should also know that even after doing a factory data reset your information
    still exists on the device until it is written over by something else and can still be recovered
    if someone really wanted to.

    There is an app on android market called SHREDroid which will re-write your entire drive
    to destroy every last bit of information that is left. But it does seem that alot of people are
    having problems with it.

    Didn't know that.. Thought the factory reset erased everything.
