Default [Tool][Aroma][v1.1]:Mega Wipe:Super Wipe:Factory Reset:Simple Wipe

This is a tool originally developed by Zoot1 a developer on xda-developers.com.

All I have done, with his permission, is to modify it for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

I wish to thank him very much for allowing me to do this. You can visit his original development link at Zoot1 Wipe Scripts for Flashaholics.

USE THIS AT YOUR RISK. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR AN DAMAGE TO YOUR PHONE, ANY ARGUMENTS BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR SPOUSE, LOST BANK ACCOUNTS, NEW REVOLUTIONS OR ACTS OF GOD.

You MUST have the following installed in order to use this tool:

1. CWM Recovery installed (TWRP should work but do not have TWRP installed - not available for N900)
2. Busybox installed


What the tool does:

1. Megawipe: Use this to completely format your phone. It will delete everything in your phone and will bring it to bare bones. After it install any ROM for a fresh experience without any conflicts with in the frame work.It deletes the Data, Cache, System and Preload partitions of your internal memory. So Beware!
2. SuperWipe: This is a simple factory reset and you can use it to move from one ROM to another without bothering about framework conflicts. It deletes the Dalvik Cache, Preload, System and Cache partitions of your internal memory. Does not delete /data files.
3. Factory Reset: Use it to do a Factory Reset, which wipes your Data partition, Cache Partition and Dalvik Cache.
4. SimpleWipe: A simple wipe is as the name suggests a Simple Cache and Dalvik wipe. You can use it to clear the said partitions before updating to a newer version of your ROM. Also, You can use it before you have flash a new ROM.

Updated Nov. 3, 2013 - v1.1 - fully tested - Note: I only have an N900.
Nov. 21, 2013: Added N9005 v1.0 scripts.

so the mega wipe wipes interal sdcard as well? is there anyway to edit that so the script only wipes data/system/cache/dalvik, and leaves sdcard intact?

The MegaWipe DOES NOT wipe internal sdcard. Having looked at the original script, it never did.

Mega Wipe does not delete your internal partition? Because in Samsung Galaxy S 3 i remember this script "reformat" your preload internal partition! the word "reformat" i put it in quotes because i don`t know exactly how to say it in english! Anyway i must thank you for your hard work!

Nice. If I understand this correctly this is like the Darkside wipes (and now Infamous wipes) for GSII. I used those all the time on my phone. Easiest way to wipe without worry. Thanks. I was hoping for this for the Note 3.
