    selling adam - clear system enough?

    I'm thinking about to sell my adam. Would it be ok just to clear system + cache and install a new rom to avoid that the buyer can get access for example to my googlemail account or other stuff? What can i do to be safe in that matter?

    Good question.

    I've wondered about this myself. i guess putting on the stock rom and wiping data, cache would be enough.

    My issue is that i have no way to sell mine. My reputation is 0 on sales since I've never sold anything on ebay. Reputation is 58 on buying stuff though. i wouldn't even know how to sell anything on ebay lol

    Good luck.

    things that you downloaded will still on the device, you can delete those with sniffer.

    I have done the data wipe and cache clear with a now rom update, and then I simply go to sniffer and click on the apks for flash to reload, so I know they don't get deleted.

    they won't be able to get into your accounts, but if you saved a spreadsheet or word document ect, those will still be there also.

    Add to that this IMPORTANT step :

    /Go into settings ...
    /SD card & Storage ...
    /Unmount the SD card...
    /Format the SD card
    /mount it back..

    Add these in addition to your wiping the cache & factory reset and you are COMPLETELY STOCK with nothing leftover.... EXACTLY as when you just received the device
