    Default Factory reset, do or don't?

    Well, this question was coming. Normal factory reset just for people who have rooted stock, yay or nay? (I assume a "heck no"?)

    Wouldn't it be fine as long as there is the stock recovery in place?( i do not own the phone, just taking a stab in the dark)

    Hmm, so it may be okay with the stock rooted... I'll probably put this on the vm forums as well.

    I understand, I don't plan on trying it anyhow, just asking the questions that will be asked so there will be answers/people who can say do or don't, so we don't have threads like in the ov forums, "I did lg factory reset your halps plz".

    Once rooted and you have a custom recovery in place you should always use the Factory Reset/Data Wipe option within custom recovery in place of the OS "Factory Reset" within Settings.

    Well said Paul I know on the opti s and v once a custom recovery is installed factory resetting from within the privacy menu in settings WILL brick your phone.

    No problem. I simply look at it your custom recovery has that option available so use that over anything else. Never had a problem that way.

    Your correct I have read that about the Optimus phones, it's a big no no.

    If you do a factory reset from the power/vol- menu it just boots to your recovery. From inside the privacy menu... Think it would brick.
