is this the right code *2767*3855# to reset phone to factory specs ?
Here, let me try it and I'll let you ........Hey wait a minute........Bad Zap!!
Test it and post back your findings, please.
Thanks in advance.
Kidding aside, yes, that dialed code is for a reset, although we see varying reports of how "complete" a wipe it is from device to device.
Will this code remove root? I want to update to Froyo without any issues. If this code won't reset the phone is there a code out there that will?
I would not attempt a factory data reset with a rooted device.
Anything can happen from nothing to rendering your phone not usable.
The whole unrooting thing for the Fascinate seems to be up in the air at the moment. I've not been successful at unrooting mine, only being able to get the stock apps back via a method linked in the rooting sticky (http://androidforums.com/fascinate-...-19-october-2010-5-45am-central-u-s-time.html) called, "returning to stock."
Your Mileage May Vary
This is so frustrating. Either we live with a phone that can be updated with even more bloatware or we have a rooted device that has all the bloareware removed, is responsive but ,can't be updated. And I pay 100 dollars a month for the privilege.
There are varying reports on receiving OTA updates (not Froyo) after rooting.
The last update came to my phone and successfully installed a few days after I rooted and ran the stock apps "unroot" method. I later found out that my device was still rooted, simply by re-installing Superuser and checking files in Root Manager.
It appears that updates can install if certain apps and files remain in a rooted Fascinate, thus my success after running the stock apps method.
Others say the update would never install, either timing out or eliciting an error message.
Being rooted, you will be able to update, but just not by OTA. The dev team will have some baked goodies shortly after the official update I'm sure.
Precisely, there is no disadvantage to rooting. Some will say you cannot get an OTA, ok fine thats true. But everything that comes OTA will be made better by the dev's so MC is very correct. In fact, there's a substantial chance we get our goodies prior to them coming OTA
