  1. Hi,
    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?

    • Really? I never notice that (since I only use Google Account :D ) Too bad I don’t know other method yet. Are you already try method #3? Regards :)

  2. Wanted to try on Method #3 but there is no Google Apps in the all list.

    Galaxy S2.

    • Sorry, I can’t figure it out a bettery way rigth now. If I know, i will update the article. Regards :-)

      have you tried clicking menu and selecting running programs in the filter option

      • Thank you for your help. Just for info, there is no Google Apps in Samsung Galaxy Note (maybe it’s also same as Yl’s Galaxy S2). I already check at the “All” tab also in “Running” tab. Regards :)

      You mean unlock password? If you know how to enter the recovery mode, you can erase the old password by doing factory data reset. For further information, read: “How to overcome Android boot loop, unable to enter menu and forgot Android pin, password or pattern lock” click here. Regards :)

      Yes it can, try to turn off your device first > pull out the battery and leave it for 5-10 minutes > put the battery back > turn on your device > it will regenerate accounts.db automatically > add your new Google Account. Regards :)

    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.

  7. If I do a factory reset on my mytouch will I have to go to t mobile to have my phone reactivated? Sorry if a dumb question

    • I never try it. But if your phone is using SIM card, then I think you don’t need to go to T Mobile to reactivated your phone. But, to be save, I suggest to call T-Mobile customer service first to make sure. Regards :)
