I have a rooted Galaxy S3 GT-i9300 with Android 4.3.
I've rooted it using this method: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gYjoW22h7c
Now, I would like to erase all the data, but don't loose the root access.
Originally, I was going to go to Settings and press Factory Reset, as I used to do before I rooted the device.
I'm using Philz Touch Recovery and I did the Wipe Data/Factory Reset. The process was successful and installed the new rooted rom. After boot up i went to "My Files" and download folder which is located in my device storage. (/storage/emulated/0/Download) All the files that i downloaded from the internet before wipe data/factory reset is still there.
