Does anyone ever have problems wiping?
Whoa! That topic title
When I go to wipe my phone, often I find, after I reinstall my factory image, the device still remembers my wifi password. Even after doing the following...
Wiping with recovery (data, cache, davlik)
Wiping with Jellybean Format All X2
Wiping with stock recovery (data and cache)
Even with all that, I still find, sometimes, my device remembers my wifi, which leads me to believe it never was fully wiped.
Any suggestions to ensure a proper wipe?
I've been messing around with it a bit more, and now I don't think the problem is the password being remembered.
When I flash back to factory using Samsungs Simple Drive, typically, when you go to re-configure the phone, you're immediately prompted for a wifi password upon setting up e-mail.
I found, half the times I wasn't prompted for an e-mail pass, which led me to believe my wifi pass wasn't getting erased.
Now, I think the reason I wasn't getting prompted for my wifi pass, is because it was connecting to the cellular broadband, which must be the reason I wasn't getting prompted for a wifi password.
I just tried it, after not getting prompted for my wifi pass, and sure enough I had a real slow connection with the web browser. Then I clicked on my wifi router in settings, and was prompted for a password.
Strange thing is, I'm using Freedompop as my provider, yet getting an internet connection without their app being installed. I even tested the connection with the Speedtest app and was getting 1.3 mbps down and .58 up. I guess with Fredompop, you're connected to data even without thier app installed.
I tried making phone call without the app installed, however that did not work.
