LCD broken, need to wipe data
For Phone specs see signature.
I've damaged my display i.e. my LCD is broken so nothing is displayed but I can turn the phone on as my morning alarm does go off and the 'menu' and 'back' controls light up so board is functioning.
I have decided to sell it as is, so someone else can faff around with it if they want to repair it. What I need to do now is try and wipe my data off of the phone before selling.
BUT...I'm not sure what the steps are for the N7000. I have downloaded the Android SDK and ODIN. Have also seen these instructions elsewhere...
1. Download factory_reset.tar.md5
2. Open ODIN
3. put factory_reset.tar.md5 in PDA section and do not check/uncheck anything else...
4. Put your phone in download mode and connect it to PC..........................Not sure how to put the N7000 into download mode, tbh I had only ever heard of recovery mode. Instructions were as follows....
Volume down + home +power
That will lead to warning Page
Here you have to press volume up to enter download mode.
5. Hit start and it will flash and reboot.................................What exactly am I flashing here? I thought we were just wiping data why do I need to flash anything?
Is there another or better way of wiping the data or will the above work?
