    I want to erase my phone so I can sell it. How to I make sure none of my old personal information is on it or can be recovered?


    I wiped my Sd card and I copied just the mod zip file I want on the phone.

    I then rebooted into recovery.

    and I formated:


    system

    cache

    data



    and then installed from sd card the rom I want.


    Is that it? I assume if I format boot that would be bad??

    what about

    sd-ext??

    Thanks

    Bob

    If your going to sell it then:
    Go to All Things Root Guide sticky. Select the guide on how to update to the ZV9 update. This will return the phone to a bone stock state with a stock recovery and no root access.
    The buyer will be able to setup their own Google account and use the activate app.
