Default Wipe t999

I flashed route 66 4.3 update via Odin last night, however I would like to do a clean install. How can I wipe the internal memory so I can re-flash via odin? I'm trying to remove all apps etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated

There is a script that can be flashed through a custom recovery that will completely wipe your internal memory clean. I have it on my S3. I'm on my nexus 5 now so I don't have access to it right now. If someone doesn't have a better suggestion I'll share it with you when I can.

Go into recovery and format /Data. If you are on TWRP, there should be an Erase Internal in the Wipe settings. Not sure about Clockwork.

Boot to recovery.
Wipe /Cache
Wipe /Dalvik-Cache
Factory Reset.
Format /System
Format /Data
Profit!!!

In recovery Format Data =/= Wipe Data
Format is erasing your internal
Wipe is wiping your app data.

Edit: If you want to flash what Jorge said above, just search for XquiziT's Superwipe and you might be able to find it.
