I am selling an HD+ running 10.2.1 and want to make sure my info is erased. If I boot into CWM and do a factory reset/wipe data, it will reboot into the CM setup and my data will be gone, right?

Yes and no. All your apps and settings will be gone but your media files you may have downloaded to the internal sdcard will still be there. To get rid of that you must boot to CWM and go to mounts and storage and format 'data and datamedia'.

Thanks. I can delete the media manually. There's just a few pictures.

If I delete my accounts, is that info really gone if I don't do a factory reset? Or is it still recoverable like deleted files are in Windows?
