Dear all, my questions might have been answered already, but the search function was not really helpful.


I am trying to do a reset like the factory reset, so to delete all except the system data...even the music and pictures....without sideloading a software....is it possible?

Thanks!!

Not sure what you mean about sideloading software. If you're OK with deleting your OS as well, the full wipe feature in TWRP will definitely do that. But that will leave you with NOTHING except TWRP, so don't do that unless you're willing and able to use adb to push a new ROM to the phone (there won't be anything saved on your SD) and flash it.

Well that exactly what I meant by writing sideloading (adb push) is there any way to avoid that?),

umm I suppose you could try using the Advanced wipe in TWRP, it's an option after you click the WIPE button. It gives you a list of partitions you want to wipe. I suppose in theory you could wipe all but the system but I'm not sure if that's a good idea. I'd take a nandroid backup first (and put it on your computer.)

Why are you trying to avoid ADB?

This is perfectly safe. You should do "advanced wipe" and format userdata partition and sdcard. Just don't wipe "system".
