I updated to 4.4.2 on att with root but now I want factory reset to make sure its fresh so I can get maximum battery life. Anyway I can do that with going all the way back to stock through rsd? Since the stock recovery is not there from rooting.

Why can't you factory reset with a custom recovery?

I have a locked bootloader. The stock recovery isn't there because the way I rooted my phone it removed it I believe.

If I'm not mistaken, by taking the OTA, it flashed the stock recovery, which is why it re-enables write protection.

Why can't I factory reset through the settings then? The phone just reboots on any option I select.

Well, I must be mistaken lol.

You could fastboot and erase userdata, davlik, and cache I think.

So you don't have any recovery at all? Have you tried booting into recovery?

adb reboot recovery doesn't bring you to your recovery?

This is the message I get doing that:
Partition (recovery) security version downgraded
Fastboot reason: boot failure

Then I have the option to normal reboot, recovery, and factory, and two other options. Selecting the second or third does nothing and ends up just rebooting the phone.
