[Q] How to hard reset along with SD Card for a Custom Rom? [HTC Sensation]
I've read the given below pages (1st three links) for installing a Custom Rom on my Android, but don't know where or how to start?
I have backed up all my data... And only now need to do a factory reset, before I ::: backup the whole phone along with OS/ROM (2nd link below):::... then I need to install a Custom Rom on it. This would require rooting, and since HTC has only 1 year warranty, I guess rooting won't void any warranty (which has already gone past the 1 year limit)
So I need to ask step-by-step:
1.: How do I factory reset completely along with SD Card and Phone Memory? I need to completely remove the APPS/photos/music/videos/etc etc on both phone memory and the sd card. So that it seems like a new phone after the factory reset.
2.: How can I root the phone? I don't understand what flashing means, and don't know of any method to root HTC Sensation phone.
3.: Which Custom Rom should I select for my phone? The default stock ROM of HTC has features like "vibrate on key press" and "zoom into focus on touch camera" etc etc... are such features available on the CyanogenMod ROM? I found ::: this page (4th link below)::: which has 4 updated roms, but also the official CyanogenMOD page has a 2012 rom named "Pyramid" for HTC sensation.
That's mostly I need to ask.
Thanks for any help.
