Hello and thanks for your help. I just bought a rooted phone today (N1) that is running on froyo 2.2 Build number: frf50 However, i cannot download any apps because it wants the previous owners gmail password. When i try to delete their account the phone says that the account is required by some applications and i must restore the phone to factory defaults. My question is, if I do this will the phone no longer be 'rooted?' Or even worse, will I brick it? I dont know how to check if the rom are backed up or not...... can someone please help! Pretty much I would like to know if my phone will turn on again if i do this and if it does will it still be rooted? Thanks!
