In our continued effort to make this work with KitKat, we have had mixed results. So, if you are running KitKat, it may or may not work for you until I get time to investigate the issues with some phones. But, it's a free app with no ads and works for most people.
Please provide feedback to the developer rather than giving a low rating so that I can fix whatever is wrong. Also feel free to suggest improvements. Thank you.
It is possible to forensically extract information from a smart phone using mobile forensic tools such as Cellebrite and XRY even after it has been deleted. This utility can help to prevent that from happening by sanitizing the free space on a phone. Similar functionality can be found on desktop machines using utilities like CCleaner, Eraser, and File Shredder. If you are afraid of the government peeking at your phone and extracting and reconstructing deleted files, this is the app that you want.
This application does not delete files or clean the cache. Use other tools such as ES File Explorer and AVG Cleaner to delete files and clean the cache. Then use this utility to sanitize the free space. The free version of this application does not sanitize database areas such as contacts, phone logs, or SMS text messages. Look for a pro version in the future that may perform a more thorough sanitization.
Although we cannot guarantee that all free space will be sanitized, this application finds all of the free space that Android will give us in three primary areas where data is normally stored and overwrites it as completely as the phone will allow:
1. System - This is the protected data area shared by all applications.
2. SD Card - On some phones this is the actual SD Card and on others it is emulated SD Card space.
3. Optional SD Card - On some phones this is the actual SD Card and many other phones do not have this space. Samsung phones typically put the real external SD Card here.
To run the application:
1. Make sure that the phone has good battery/wall power.
2. Put a checkmark next to the sections of memory to sanitize.
3. Press the Start Wiping button.
4. Do not use the phone while the application is working.
The status area will indicate how the process is going.
Some have complained that after a wipe, they sometimes still see old files that were deleted using Hexamob or other similar apps. In my investigation I have found that the overwhelming majority of files are overwritten but occassionally one file is left intact. This could occur if Android does not allow us to write to every free sector. Watch the statistics as it is overwriting to see if the free space count goes to 0 as it is writing. Also run the app more than once to get more thorough wiping since SD cards rotate their sectors in and out of service.
Many SD cards rotate blocks of memory in and out of use for wear leveling. As a result, it is possible that after sanitizing memory there could be some blocks that get rotated back in to use that were never sanitized. To mitigate this possibility, run this application twice which statistically will usually hit all blocks of memory.
This application has not been tested on all phones. Please provide feedback to the developer about any problems. It has been found to work on Samsung Galaxy S2, S3, S4 and Victory phones, the HTC Arrive and others. System space takes several minutes to sanitize and 8GB SD Cards can take up to half an hour. If the application is aborted before it finishes, there may be large files left on the phone. If this happens, simply reboot the phone and bring the application up and it will automatically look for these files and delete them at startup.
● Locate Android devices associated with your Google account
● Reset your device's screen lock PIN
● Erase all data on the phone
The operating system your smartphone is running may be vulnerable to USSD commands that could wipe your entire phone.
Tapping on a link to a cleverly coded web page could order you phone to reset itself to factory settings and disintegrate all your private data with it.
Any Android phone running Phone.apk v 4.1 or lower is at risk and that's the broader base of them. Install Bitdefender's USSD Wipe Stopper to protect against such attacks. Now, once you would tap on a exploiting link, Bitdefender will intercept the wipe command and ask you to decide what to do next. You may, if unsure, dismiss the USSD command.

Protect yourself with SaniDroid. Wipe free space or delete with wiping selected files, protect your privacy and help thwart identity thieves!
SaniDroid is the correct ‘sanitize your device’ app.
What SaniDroid does: Gives you peace of mind by sanitizing and wiping clean 'free' memory of all data 'ghosts' in system memory and the Internal SD Card or selectively delete with wiping individual files - helping to thwart identity theft and protect your privacy.
What SaniDroid doesn't do: Wipe the external SD Card (coming soon, will require root).
Factory Resets or manual deletions of files, contacts, history, etc. do not completely wipe/sanitize your personal data off of your device. Merely the pointer that the operating system (OS) uses is deleted, releasing that memory space for later use. This renders the 'deleted ' data invisible to you and the OS but is still easily retrievable.
SaniDroid conforms to National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM) directives for sanitizing memory. If the U.S. government conforms with and benefits from the same directives to sanitize classified information stored in memory you can too! Sanidroid performs an overwrite operation on files and 'slack space' or free space in memory and the internal SD Card..
Link to Defense Security Service http://www.dss.mil/isp/odaa/nispom06.html
If reselling your phone:
1. Factory reset
a. If your device no longer has a service connection (4G/3G) then connect via wifi for license check of Sanidroid
2. Download SaniDroid
3. Run SaniDroid
That’s it, you can safely resell your device!
Please understand that this app, and any memory clearing effort for that matter, is not fast. Any method used that performs a true memory wipe/sanitization effort cannot, by it's very nature, be performed quickly. Please be patient and keep the device plugged into a wall outlet, not your computer as your computer will want to mount the memory that the app needs to access. 2-3 minutes per gigabyte is not unusual. Newer devices will be faster and older phones with more than a GB of memory will be slower. Thank you for looking and if downloaded, please rate so I can address any issues that might crop up.
Why would you want to do this?
Well, when you delete a file on your phone, it does not actually get deleted. It get's marked by the system to pretend that the file isn't there until it gets overwritten.
If you lose your phone, or are selling your phone, the new owner may be able to recover deleted financial information, deleted personal images, cleared passwords, or ANYTHING that has ever been on your phone. If you saw it on the screen, or typed it in, or took a picture of it, there's a good chance that it is still on your phone and the bad guys know how to get it.
How does it work?
Wipe Free Space fills either the internal or external storage until it is completely full with a junk file and then deletes that. That means that everything that you have previously deleted gets overwritten and all an attacker will find when he tries to recover deleted files is the junk file generated by Wipe Free Space.
Why is it worth it?
It's only 99 cents and gives you piece of mind and security. You can sell your phone to whoever you like and won't need to worry about personal info being recoverable.
For best results, wipe internal free space first, then wipe SD free space. Many phones use a partition on the SD card and pretend that it's internal storage. Solid disk storage like SD cards and most phone storage does not act like the old hard drives in our PCs. There isn't a way to pick and choose what blocks of data to overwrite to really securely delete files. That's also the reason that defragging isn't necessary.
Unfortunately, this also means that we can't really stop a wipe and come back to it and know that we are hiding the data we want to hide. Basically, what I am saying is, MAKE SURE TO COMPLETE BOTH WIPES to the very end, one immediately after the other, before considering the files to be completely gone from your device.
Yes, that will take a while, so here is the best method of using this app...
0. Wait for a time that you won't need your phone for a few hours. Perhaps start an hour before bed so when we get to wiping SD, you can let it run overnight.
1. Go into the settings of your phone and set it to stay awake while plugged in. Then, put your phone in airplane mode so calls don't interrupt the processor intensive wipe.
2. If you are charging using a PC, make sure that SD storage sharing is DISABLED. If it is not, Wipe Free Space might not see your SD card or might not work correctly. Same goes with many apps.
3. Check Wipe Internal Free Space and then click "Go!"
4. Find something to do while the wiping process is going. If your phone has a ton of storage, this will take a LONG TIME. Wait until the process is complete. You will see the message "#### blocks of #### blocks of free space has been wiped!"
5. When you are done wiping the internal free space, check "Wipe SD Card Free Space". The other check box will uncheck for you.
6. Click "Go!" and find something to do for a while. Writing to the SD always takes longer than the internal memory unless your SD card is tiny and very fast. Wait for the process to complete and just let the phone be. You will see the same message as in step 4 when complete.
7. Turn off airplane mode and use the phone again. Or, if selling it, just leave it in airplane mode and leave it alone so no private data gets on your phone again.
Recovery tools can be used to restore the previous content.
AndroShredder allows to permanently destroy file contents and wipe previously used storage space, so that secret data can't be restored even by advanced recovery tools.
The new SMS Database wipe function allows you to securely wipe your SMS database without deleting existing messages.
AndroShredder needs the SMS read/write permission to do that.
No messages are actually sent by AndroShredder!
AndroShredder has been tested against several data recovery tools. None of them were able to recover data that was cleaned by AndroShredder.
You can choose out of a variety of standard cleaning algorithms, like U.S DoD 5220.22-M, British HMG IS5 (Enhanced), Russian GOST P50739-95, German VSITR or just do a quick shred, which should be enough for most SSD based storage devices and USB flash drives.
+ Can act as a share target, send files to AndroShredder e.g. from your camera or file manager app
+ Select multiple files and directories to shred
+ Search for pictures, videos or other file types
+ Can preview pictures, videos or any other file before deletion
+ Cleans nested folders and their content
+ Save selections for later re-use
+ U.S DoD 5220.22-M, British HMG IS5 (Enhanced), Russian GOST P50739-95, German VSITR and quick shred algorithms
+ Clean (wipe) free space on any writable storage device (SSD cards, Hard Disks, USB flash drives etc.)
+ Wipe SMS storage database
+ Wipe FAT32 devices > 4GB
+ Tested against various recovery tools
+ Optional password protection
What WIPE BATTERY STATS do?
It's simple remove the old batterystats.bin in system folder. This file will be generated a new clear soon by Android OS, so any fake information from previous batterystats.bin will be cleared!
WIPE BATTERY STATS is recommend to done when you flashing a new ROM!

Help me ! Bulldozer!
Rated R Pictures with my ex-girlfriends, are you sure its 100% deleted?
Ask Bulldozer J
Old smart phones in your wardrobe, You don’t know what to do with it?
Just sell it in flea market! Because bulldozer is there for you!
Even though you want to change your smart phone to new Galaxy S4,
are you worried about your old smart phone’s private information?
Isn’t there a way to solve this problem?
YES WE HAVE THE SOLUTION.
Try our Ultimate wiper BULLDOZER! BULLDOZER will wipe out your private information perfectly.
@What is BULLDOZER?
BULLDOZER is total solution for private information in your mobile device.
BULLDOZER will wipe out your critical private and confidential information. Wiped out information by BULLDOZER cannot be reconstructed, so if you are trying to sell, change your smart phone, you have just made right choice.
Are you concerned about our application’s performance?
- we have confirmed our performance by using legal restoration tool, and confirmed the deleted information cannot be restored by legal restoration program.
- performance also confirmed by mobile restoration program.
- confirmed information completely deleted by using Hexa Editor, searching entire memory.
- Samsung, LG, Pentech, HTC, Google phone performance confirmed.
Introducing Bulldozer’s technology.
Until now, the established theory was that it is impossible to wipe out certain information out of smart device completely. In general case, in order to do complete wipe out, you have to cover the new data, but the system does not allow you to do that, because the system will keep trying to write new data from whole different place. BUT THIS MEANS THAT YOU CANNOT COVER UP THE OLD DATA, YOU CAN ACTUALLY DELETE THE WRITTEN DATA COMPLETELY. We have developed out technology from this idea, and we have achieved our patent.
- file browser – you can select which file to wipe out by using this function.
- search – you can search your files by category and erase it
- storage management – you can search the “unused” part of the memory and completely wipe out the “not activated part” of the memory
- Out UI is similar to general file organizer, so easy to use
- It is not “Total format” so you can choose which file to delete.
- You don’t have to initialize your phone to wipe out data.
- You can do “part initialization” by formatting the “not activated part”
- when you are trying to sell your old smart phone device
- when toy are trying to change your smart phone device
- when you are trying to erase important photos, videos, or word files,
in order to prevent the accident from the phone loss
We have tested over 20 kinds of smart phone device and it showed almost 100% percentage performance. But since this version is free version, deleted data might be able to restored. If there is any problem while you are using this application, please contact us to email@example.com with your phone model no. and android version. We will try our best to fix the problem.
The free version app could not wipe document formats. If you want to wipe the selected format, you should download bulldozer pro version (non free)
Some of the great features:
★ Fast scanning in background (you can close the app till it finishes scanning)
★ Files categorization
★ Files preview
★ Largest files on the top of the list
★ And more ...
SDCard is a shared place where applications can save their data. It's often full of big files that are not needed anymore. Please be careful, deleted files can't be restored. Your phone can have more than one SD Card (some new phones have internal and also external SDCards).
This app can be used as:
Memory cleaner, SD card cleaner, large files finder, big files finder, storage optimizer, storage cleaner.

Poke around the Android section of the Internet and you’ll hear something similar. Users are in an uproar because they updated their phone to Android 4.4 KitKat, and now the SD card support has changed. Apps no longer work, folks have problems with cameras and music players, and while everyone else is saying “Oh, yeah. That’s how it works now,” nobody warned them in advance before they grabbed that update. (By Jerry Hildenbrand posted on Android Central March 12, 2014)
If the above description suits your situation, this patch is born to save you!
Google has modified the default permissions for the external SD Card on Android 4.4 KitKat, which directly caused many of your favorite third parity apps lose read/write access to external SD card and became useless.
Problem you may have for third party apps after the KitKat Update:
* File Manager app can no longer create, move or edit files or folders on external sdcard
* Camera, Music or Video app can no longer save files to external sdcard or edit your media file saved on ecternal storage
* Previous paid or free app/game data saved on sdcard can no longer work or be accessed
* WiFi syncing to SD card is blocked
* Move apps to sdcard is blocked
* many other problems
Here we are providing a FREE, SIMPLE, and Ads-free app which helps you magically restore all your previous access to external SD card. Once this patch in installed on your phone, the third party apps can run nornal as before.
1. This app requires Root Access and must grant Superuser Permission to use. (If your device is not rooted, please Google your device model root method and apply.)
2. We cannot recommend or give you direct methods to root your device, since root method varies from devices.
3. Please make sure you are having problem of reading external SD card on KitKat, or this app cannot help you with anything
4. Please make sure you have an external SD card (removable storage) on your device, for example, Samsung S 4. If you are using Nexus, then you do not need to install this app.
5. As is generally the case with all root modifications, you need to take all risk by yourself.
6. File Expert, the powerful file manager, has updated to support most devices on KitKa. Please have a try.
7. This patch may not work on device which runs unofficial OS( By unofficial OS means OS not developed by Google or your device provider, since the unofficial OS has changed Android default settings)
8. This patch may not work on all the Android devices running on Android 4.4 KitKat. If it does not work please just uninstall. We are working on to support more devices.
If you do not understand or vague about what happened to your Android after update to KitKat, please look through the following info carefully.

Why Burn In?
Burn-in is the process for exercising new audio equipment. Most headphones/speakers require at least 40 hours of burn-in time to reach their optimal performing state.
The main purpose of the burn-in process is to loosen the diaphragm of a newly crafted headphone and to stress the headphone driver. Most audiophiles agree that the sound quality will be noticeably improved after burn-in.
How to Burn In?
There are different ways to burn-in your headphones (or earbuds). The most common ways include running a white noise through the headphones at a medium volume. Note: too high of a volume can cause damage to, or even kill your headphones!
How long should I do it?
The general rule is about 40 hours. Some people burn-in their headphones quickly playing them 40 hours continuously after bringing them home. This may not be good because, the diaphragm may be too weak at this time and should not be pushed to the limit. The best thing to do may be to plug your headphones into your android phone / tablet, set the volume to medium, and run burn in app for up to 4-5 hours a day for 5 days (perhaps, while you are at work or sleeping). After that, your headphones will most likely sound their best. Note: you do not need to listen the whole time.
