    Do you not have the option to do a reset in settings? That would take it back to factory defaults.

    Doing a factory reset would accomplish the same thing as reflashing the OS with the same version you have now. All data and apps you installed would be gone so you would need to back up your data. Apps could be reinstalled without a problem.

    Unless I'm missing something.
