    A few days ago I rooted my Droid Incredible.
    As recommended, immediately after that I've made nandroid backup.
    After a day or two of playing, something went wrong, and I restored from this nandroid backup.
    Now I tried to do factory reset.
    I tried both methods - via ClearStorage in HBOOT, and also via Settings > SD & Phone storage > Factory Data Reset > Reset phone and internal storage > Erase everything.
    No matter what I do, after the phone boots, my customizations (wallpaper, screen layouts, etc) remain - although all installed apps are gone.

    How do I REALLY reset the phone, so even my customizations are gone?
    Please help!

    Go into recovery (clockwork) and click wipe data/factory reset from there. And while you are at it clear your cache and davlik cache (under advanced options) just to make sure everythign is gone.
