I rooted my phone yesterday with z4root and I'm looking forward to installing ROMs in the near future. A big thanks to all the Android Forums members that wrote great guide threads! However, (and this is me being slightly neurotic) I would like to have a completely pristine Droid X before I install ROMs and continue my customization. This is mainly because I want to ensure I don't run into any problems. My Droid X has been acting up tonight and I'm not sure why. Wiping it clean and starting fresh would really take a weight off of my shoulders. My questions: Is factor resetting the way to go if I want to wipe my phone or is there another way like installing a fresh OS (via SBF although I'm not sure what that is)? Will the fact that my phone is rooted effect my factory reset? Will my files on my SD card be affected? I would like them to be cleared as well. How will being rooted and having freezed bloatware (eg. Amazon Kindle, Blockbuster, etc.) affect a factory reset? Anything else I should know? Thank you so much for your help ahead of time. I've been reading a lot but seeing info about Android 2.1 and other things has left me a bit confused.
