Linux solutions to root and restore mobile phone as new
I just bought a second hand mobile phone (Huawei Y200-U00 with Android 2.3.6) but I would like to restore it exactly as new
There are many apps that don't work, I guess the last owner of this phone has done some custom hacks this is why I want to totally remove the content of the phone and to reinstall everything as new
I have USB cable and a laptop running Linux Debian
Per chance does someone know if this is doable ?
Thank you !
