    all your apps would be removed, and you would still be on .595

    Why .595 if he's running .596?

    I think he meant 596. What a factory reset does is basically wipe data/cache so all apparently that aren't preinstalled will be removed and your gmail account will be removed as well. It will take you back to when you first installed a rom. So if you factory reset on 595 you get 595. Reset on 596 you get 596.

    Copy that..

    That's what I thought, but I wanted to make sure something didn't change.

    Thanks!

    Factory reset gets you back to the way your phone was when you brought it home, but with the latest rom version you installed.

    It's kind of like a fresh start. It will be like when you first booted up the phone. You'll log into your google account and hopefully your apps will start downloading from the market.
