    My phone is running cm7. I've tried Clear Data and clear cache from settings but gmail and market are still logged into my account and receiving my data. How can I wipe out the data so I can add a different gmail account?

    Just wipe Data and Cache in CWR can even wipe the dalvik, Just dont wipe the boot or format the system. You can wipe and format everything else tho I believe.

    However renaming seems to have solved it. What I might want to do however is delete all prior images in cwm folder. Gave phone to my wife if it ever gets lost could just reset gmail password. However it take a technician to figure out how to restore the image. All the average iPhone user knows how to do is push buttons.
