    Default Some Questions!

    - I have a GT-I9300 and i want to COMPLETELY erase the device and restore it to factory defaults, is that possible ? If so how please. (I know how to flash the stock ROM i just want a way to erase all contents in the device and all partitions before flashing)

    - How can i diagnose the hardware of my phone (like my WiFi, Bluetooth, Camera etc ..) and check if they're working properly and optimally ? Including my battery ?

    - What are the differences between stock ROM versions (for example there's a UK version of the stock, and Germany version) what are the differences and are there any advantages of using one over another ?

    - And lastly, before 3 days i tried "DuBattery" and it messed my Battery up, now i can't recharge the phone normally it takes too long, and the Battery itself drains quickly.


    Any tips and information will be appreciated guys.
    Thanks in advance.

    Two ways..

    1. If your rooted then find and grab the device/region specific " tar " package and use Odin to flash the device back to bone stock. In the process of using Odin it will wipe the entire device clean.
    2. If your NOT rooted then you can log out/remove your Google accounts under Settings and then do a factory reset. When the device boots back up just don't log back into your Gmail/Google account and it will stay clean and clear of your personal stuff.

    I know there is a bunch of good battery testing apps. Camera, WiFi should be easy enough to check yourself and if you have access to something BT.

    ROMs you have to be careful. ALWAYS make sure when you flash a custom ROM or use the factory firmware to reset your device that it matches your devices completely. Model/region and-or carrier specific. Wrong version can result in a nice paperweight.

    Again check out some of the battery apps out there, many of the better ones have some good stats or diagnostics in them to test a battery out. Worst case your buying a new battery which wouldn't be unheard of.

    Welcome to the forums!
    Under Settings>Back up and Reset should be the factory reset option. Click that and you should be good to go. That should clear up the problem created by the battery app. As for totally wiping the phone, your own files will survive. Is that what you wanted?
