Help Bypassing the Activation Screen on a Droid X wipes the memory?


I know that you can bypass the activation screen on a Droid X by tapping all four corners from top left in a clockwise direction but does this need to be repeated every time the phone is turned on?

Also I read somewhere that when you turn it off after going through the activation screen the memory clears itself. Can anyone confirm this?



Fixing stuff is not easy
Activation screen? You mean the screen where they ask you to put a Google account?

No, he means the activation screen to activate it with VZW. It's either a VZW thing or a DX thing, I'm not sure which as the DX was the only Android phone I had on VZW.

To hooperman: Moving to DX forum to hopefully get you a more specific answer.

Usually the only time you see the activation screen is after a factory reset so all of that data would have been wiped before you got to that screen. Skipping activation does not wipe the memory.

I also don't think you would have to bypass every time you turn on your phone.
