    Factory reset will erase all data on the Nexus; not the SDcard...

    This includes contacts, sms & mms messages, market apps installed after setting up the phone, etc.

    The data on the SDcard will not be affected, however I personally would back up everything on the SDcard (nothing man made is perfect) and what ever is important to you, on the Nexus.

    Should I buy a backup app first? What does that back up for me?

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    1) No
    2) Yes, unless it's installed on the SDcard
    3) No, however... See previous post
    4) Yes

    If you selected "Enable back-up" when you first turned on the phone when you bought it you will NOT lose any data OR apps (paid or free). You can do a factory reset, and when you sign back in with your same gmail account, ALL previous data and apps will download. Once again you will NOT lose any data OR apps.

    ... also, I believe if you've unlocked your bootloader it will remain unlocked and thus your warranty is void.

    1. Turn the phone off. If itís frozen in the on state, pull the battery.
    2. Press and hold both the Home and Back buttons simultaneously.
    3. While continuing to hold the buttons, press the Power button.
    4. Release Home and Back.
    5. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the hard reset.
    Uh... by means that is the way to hard reset G1 and My touch, the hard button reset on the Nexus One is actually different. It is done by :


    Hard resetting the Nexus One with the Hard button factory data reset. (volume down and power button)
    The device must be powered OFF to perform this reset. If the device is on, turn it off. (If the device is not responsive and does not turn off, remove the battery and re-insert it.)
    While holding down the volume button on the side of the N1, press the power button briefly while maintaining the volume button pressed in for around 5-10 seconds.
    You should be presented with a menu that allows for: Fastbook, Recovery, Clear Storage, and Simlock. You can release the volume button at this time.
    Select Clear storage with the volume button up and down, then press and release the power button to make the selection.
    It will ask you to confirm this decision. Press the yes button using the volume up

    Thank you!

    Could someone explain these terms please?

    1> Fastboot
    2> Recovery
    3> Clear Storage
    4> Simlock

    What do they do?
    Thanks!

    They are mainly for rooted users. Since you are not rooted, most won't really apply. But you can can google them.

    Thank you for clarifying that this won't work for me Ken

    as usual, before submitting a query i had asked Google

    i probably did not query correctly on this and got very complex results/responses (as expected for rooted users), that went waaaaaay over my head!

    Thank you once again

    You don't lose anything on your SD card such as musics and pictures, also
    Google Voice is a pre-installed on your rom, so you don't lose it as well.

    for "2. Paid installed applications", you will find it on the download section of the market even after you do the hard reset.

    Before doing or reading below staements what screen are you seeing:

    What you posted:

    HBOOT
    <VOL UP> to previous item
    <VOL DOWN> to next item
    <POWER> to select item

    FASTBOOT
    RECOVERY
    CLEAR STORAGE
    SIMLOCK

    Or a black screen?







    Was your phone working well on the rom?

    Do you have a nandroid backup?

    Always back up your sdcard to your PC and Nandroid backup before flashing anything.

    On restarting, what did you do before this happened, install any apps etc.

    Try this, 3 finger salute--Hold down pwr/vol-(down)/trackball at same time until phone reboots into fastboot screen. Press vol- to hightlite recovery. Press pwr button to select recovery. The select reboot system.
