    Im giving my mom my old Droid 1 (upgraded to the Thunderbolt), and I have Cyanogen + a kernel flashed on there. I was wondering if there was any way I could clear all of my stuff on there without having to go through the hassle of flashing a new ROM. Thanks!!

    Yes, it is the Factory Reset.

    Settingsd --> Privacy --> Factory data reset

    This will erase all of the apps and data but does not touch the ROM and kernel. IOW, when you do this, all apps (other than the ones that were isntalled in the ROM itself) get erased, all of their data gets erased, all of you accout info gets erased - it's like your Mom getting the phone from VZW, only with CM installed instead of the stock Android ROM.

    ^^ This. Does your mom even want the custom ROM? I know my parents wouldn't care for it, so you could even unroot it, or simply flash a stock ROM (no theme, crazy launcher, etc.) and maybe just overclock it a tad (because stock speeds blow).

    Just a suggestion.
