    Can you tell me the difference? I have been Roming it up and want to start fresh.

    when you sbf your completely stock, when you rom and flash back to stock, you still have roms stored as a save point so your not entirely 100% stock, that and your still rooted, if you sbf your not rooted, and there are no traces of current roms installed

    Got it. So sbf is probrbably the best bet. Then I just get all my rooting aps, back and I am good. Should I backup and then format my sd card as well?

    only format your sd card if you want to lose everything on it. . but yeah backup first.

    Thanks. Do you have a link for RSD Lite 4.9? The only links I can find are broken or the file won't extract-says corrupted.

    That worked nicely!

    One question, I reactivated, etc. But it still knew my wifi settings? Are those stored on the sd card?

    Yeah. Went ok. Rebooted, saw the custom boot animation and it stuck there. Did a battery pull, wiped cache and hard reset then rebooted and reactivated. Had the same wallpaper I had before and the wifi settings are all there-passwords, etc.

    Seems weird. I would do a factory reset after the sbf. Its a good practice to get in the habit of.

    I did that after I cleared the cache. Funny thing is it took a long time. Phone seems to work fine now though.

    Did it delete your wifi etc after the factory reset?

    When I signed in to google, etc. it was there. Strange.

    That is weird. When I sbf and factory reset, everything is gone on my phone. Its just like I walked out of a VZW store with it.

    I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that google stores that info with your account as well. Don't quote me on it though. I just remember reading that somewhere. I don't even know if the source was credible. :p

    Makes sense. Google is big brother! :eek:

    Maybe he has the settings in privacy set to back up everything to Google? I always turn that setting off before activating my phone.

    yeah I dunno if I'm liking all this big brother stuff lol

    I do. I didn't realize it's for wifi, etc. But it makes it so much easier than plugging back in 10 passwords.
