What's the PROPER Way to do a CLEAN Wipe and Restore On my Phone? Its SLOW!


Friday 19th of October 2012 / forums.androidcentral.com
I almost feel like every since I've upgraded from 2.3 Gingerbread to ICS and then now to Jelly Bean.. my phone's gotten slower and slower. And honestly I'm really not reaping any of the new "features" of ICS and JB because its gotten to the point where navigating b/w apps and loading them becomes sluggish. This is stressful and frustrating considering Google and many ppl are saying ICS and JB is SOOO MUCH FASTER and BETTER and I am really not seeing it being better at all when my phone's slow. I'm starting to believe its true what some ppl say -- smartphone's life cycle is about 2 years, and I've had this Nexus S 4g sinec May 2011. Anyway enough of my vent, I want to do a clean wipe of my phone starting fresh, in hopes of it being running a little more smoothly since people are saying JB is AWESOME.. What's the PROPER way of doing it so I won't lose important things such as CONTACTS ? IIs there a step by step process somewhere ? Do I really have to re-download and re-install every single app? I can move all my pics and videos, and music out to be sure I won't screw up on t

The best way to do a backup and restore?


Friday 14th of January 2011 / androidforums.com
Ok, First off, I apologize for asking this question, becuase I have a feeling its been asked before, I just kind of want to find a simple , definitive answer to this... I'm fairly new to the whole rooting thing, so forgive me..anyway. today I started having massive bluetooth connectivity issues with my phone, and I have no idea what's causing them (i started a thread about that, so I wont go into details here) so I want to reflash my rom, or maybe try out a different one if I see something I'd like better..My question is this. Is there a way (or an app) to backup your phone (contacts that aren't gmail/facebook related, other things that are being stored in the phone memory, apps, text messages, icon placement on screens(?) etc) and then fully restore everything after flashing the ROM? THe way i've done it so far has been to use astro file manager to do a backup of my apps, and then one by one, install each one back on the phone. i'm basically just looking for some sort of all-in-one tool that takes all the work out of the ROM flashing process...it just feels like more of a hassle tha

Is there a way to do a clean install/format phone?


Sunday 14th of July 2013 / androidforums.com
My phone keeps saying there is not enough space to update apps. I've removed a lot of apps and even moved all apps to the SD card. Is there a way to do a clean install/format the phone? My phone is unlocked, and I am using the stock touchwiz. Have never rooted the device before. I have however pressed the power+home button+volume button to reset the phone few times but that did not really solved the problem.

How to do a complete wipe and fresh install of Android?


Saturday 09th of November 2013 / androidforums.com
hi, when I do a "wipe data factory reset" and "wipe cache" the entire operating system is still there. How do I do a complete wipe, so it deletes the operating system and everything on the phone?(just like when you wipe a computers hard drive, it deletes the OS)thanks
