Hello, I am going to factory reset my phone. However, my question is since this is a complete reset will it also rollback to the version of android that the evo was launched with?? For example, I know have version 2.3.5. Will it roll it all the way back to 2.1? I just want my data erased, I want to keep all my system updates including whatever updates sprint sent. Do I have anything to worry about?
Also, the evo I'm resetting is deactivated. Once the reset is complete will I be able to fully use my phone without the need of a sprint connection? I have wifi so that will do.
all your data will be gone, but any OTA's or updates will still be there.
Also if you have a custom ROM installed, doing a factory data reset in the settings will put your phone in a boot loop. You'll have to go into recovery and erase data, etc., that's only if you've installed a custom ROM like CM7,9 or an AOSP ROM.
