I have deleted some preloaded apps. If I restore mobile (Factory reset)

  • Will the preloaded apps be restored?
  • Will my device remain rooted or will I lose root?

Device: Samsung Galaxy Note 1 (GT N7000)


There are two parts to your question

  1. Factory Reset.

a) Factory reset removes user data including apps installed by the user on phone. Since your device is rooted, you can see that everything in /data and /data/data will be wiped.

b) Factory reset does not flash stock ROM. Since you have deleted preloaded apps, they will not be restored. If you want them restored, you have to flash stock ROM
