    I tried the method #4 and it did clear the default gmail account plus my others accounts(exchange, hotmail and etc…). Is there a way just to clear the gmail account?

    This was a good guide, I don’t use a Gmail account on my phone, I don’t want every App I own to start using the info with my e-mail, or spamming it.
