****edit: It appears that the option "format /system" which is tucked away in a sub menu did the trick and erased the rom.


I am trying to completely delete a rom I have installed which is CyanogenMod 11 but it seems to stay no matter what, or I'm not doing it right.

First I go into recovery with the power+vol down and choosing recovery.
I have ClockworkMod 5.8.1.5.

From there I choose the wipe data/factory reset and also the wipe cache partition and wipe dalvik cache.

Then I choose the install zip from sd card to install Blackout_ICS_Incredible_v4.0.zip

After following the installer instructions and rebooting it goes back to CM11...

Any ideas how to wipe CM11 from my device?

Thanks

Info 2 4EXT Recovery 1.0.0.6 R2
try changing the recovery via bootloader, download latest 4ext recovery zip then rename it to PD98IMG and place it to your root directory of your sdcard. Then go into bootloader it will automatically detect zip file and will ask you for update, press volume up to start the update, reboot and your done. After flashing new recovery go into recovery and then wipe/format from there format all partitions except sd card. When done go back to main menu and select info to see the free space/size of all partitions.



Device: HTC Desire HD
ROM: CM11 M8.1
Recovery: 4EXT 1.0.0.6 R3 build 8
