Just a question.
I have recently experienced many reboots (kernel panics?), force shutdown processes and just anoying faults with my device.
I have had CyanogenMod CM7 for a good while, more than a year but never made a factory reset.

Now I thought as I did do with my old computer, format and reset of everything should make my device a little "happier" maybe?
To erase all old sluggish free apps, settings and what ever faulty permissions that is aroung and start fresh again. - I want to reset my phone as it would come from the factory (but with CM7 on it)

I have google sync for contacts and emails. I have dropboxed all my photos (and are going to take out the SD card during the reset)

What more do i really have to backup to have everything back up and running asap after a reset?
And is the procedure to "wipe data/factory reset" in ClockWorkMod Recovery

Thanks for your help!
