    If I think that I may have spyware on my phone (something like spymobile) or been hacked, etc etc.

    Will a factory reset erase anything? Or do I need to re-install the firmware all over again?

    If so, do I need to backup my data with Astro File or something like that?
    Looking for help or steps to take.

    Try installing one of the android virus/spyware programs, like Lookout Mobile Security.

    A factory reset should wipe everything out.

    What makes you think there is malware?

    You can try backing up apps with Astro File Manager. If you're rooted, make a NAND back up, and back up apps + data...
