    I just had someone call to buy it and they are coming this afternoon and I have no idea how to delete all my personal info from the thing. I was just going to try a factory reset but I have it rooted and clockwork mod so I didn't think that would do it.

    I have my credit card info on the Google market and I want to make sure the new owner can't acces that info. Could someone please help me asap?

    Reboot into recovery and wipe data and cache. :)

    You're a lifesaver l_n....thank you!

    I thought that's what I needed to do but I'm such a n00b when it comes to this sort of thing that I didn't want to take any chances.

    Now I have this one sold and made my money back it's time to order a 7026! Can't wait until it gets here.

    You need to wipe the /nand partition as well. I don't have mine here so I am not sure if there is a "wipe /nand" in clockwork somewhere. Look around.

    You can wipe /nand this way after booting (do this from your pc):
    Code:
    adb shell rm -rf /nand
    Be VERY careful typing that. It will erase everything in that directory without prompting for confirmation.
