Hey guys,

I'm selling my rooted HTC One, and I want to make sure all my apps and data are deleted off of it.
The guy I'm selling it to doesn't want it booted, so I don't want to return it to stock.
Is there a simple way for me to securely delete all my data? If I do "reset to factory settings" I understand it will brick it.

Thanks!
Daniel

Deleting a personal data using the factory reset will not brick anything - it only wipes a partitions what is ok.
Returning back to stock (not rooted, locked etc.) is a different story and there are few guides how to do that without bricking..
