If i goto in recovery and restore my phone to defaults will i still be rooted? will all the bloat ware that i froze and remove stay how they are or will i have to do all that again? I really want to have a fresh start on my phone with root because i dont really use it for anything else so it would be nice to have a clean slate with only the things i need.

So to shorten up the question, is there a way to restore my phone to default and still be able to have or get root again?

I do have capabilites to back up user data incase that makes a difference in the answer.


Thanks you

I don't know enough about the towelroot exploit to say whether you will still have root after a wipe, but you will be able to root again. The only thing that stops towelroot from working is updating the OS past the build date in geo's thread (March 30th I think). As far as all your stuff, you'll have to freeze/remove it again.

so going through in recovery and restoring after i do backup of things like pictures etc. wont do anything drastic that could ruin the phone? Just might need to reroot?

Factory Reset does not kill root. It's fixed in the Rom.
