I recently sold a Nexus 7 (1st generation 2012 model) online after performing a factory reset. Today, I learned that factory resetting does not completely erase your data. I am very paranoid about selling this tablet now. I read that the best thing to do is to encrypt your data and then do a factory reset. Am I correct to assume that if I've already done the reset that won't help?
If encryption is still a solution in my case, then I have a further problem: the microUSB port is broken, the device will not charge and is not detected when plugged into my computer. You can't perform the encryption without a fully charged battery, so that no longer seems like an option for me.
Given that I've already sold the tablet and am expected to ship it out on Tuesday, is there anything I can do at this point to assuage my fears of personal data theft?
