Everytime I hard reset my phone, my applications redownload on their own. I do not want this. I uncheck the back up my data option under privacy and it still happens. How can I stop this?

i was just going to ask the same thing. IM using a Droid X and every time I do a wipe and reset and sign in with my gmail ID everything goes right back to the way it was.

Ive also unchecked the data backup option.

When I had to reset my EVO I made sure to uninstall apps I no longer wanted before doing the reset. I also did a sync with AppBrain prior to reset. After the reset only the apps I wanted were downloaded.

After you activate the phone, there is a log in screen. Press menu at that login screen and hit disable restore, that does the trick.

Thanks ubermicro13 from xda
