    Can I wipe all data from my charge without losing root so I may sell it?

    Thanks in advance for your thoughts

    I'm pretty sure that just doing a factory reset won't remove root. As long as you're not using Odin to return to stock and you're only using the reset feature on the handset you'll be fine.

    Confirmed. I just did this on my Charge to wipe all data before I sold it. But it remains rooted and it maintains the custom ROM as well if you are running one.

    Yep. A factory reset/data wipe won't touch /system, and that's where root/rom live.

    Is there an actual app that erases and wipes free space? That would work on the galaxy s3. I want to basically delete deleted files so they won't get recovered.
