    Force Transformer to show New User Prompt

    Ok so I have the Primes in my family set up and working without issue. I have a third Prime that is going to another family member in another state. I have already booted his Prime and udated to the latest firmware. Is there a way to get the Prime to prompt new user set up like it does when you first turn it on ? I know a factory reset will do it but if I recall correctly that will delete the included songs, pictures and books.

    The person receiving the Prime will benefit more from the intial setup than having to go find where to add network, google account, etc..

    I was hoping maybe there was a file that could be deleted or changed.

    Thanks for any help.

    If you didn't purchase or download any of the content from the Market you can just go to settings - accounts and remove any account you may have set up. The new user just needs to add their own account. Unless I'm missing something, that's your best and possibly only option.

    The other option is to move the new content to a microSD and wipe it. Then they will have to move the content back to the internal memory.

    Surely there is a file or files, probably hidden, that are created when you set up the device that can be deleted so the device will run through the setup process again.

    If not then it looks like backing up the content that will get deleted to an SD as Frederuco suggested.

    Yes, Fred's suggestion will put it back into brand new mode.

    These files may exist, but they are in a folder that does not have write access by default and you would have to root to even try.

    Not worth it IMO

    Factory data reset should wipe all user data, but will not affect system, hence new prime with software update asking for you to sign in.
    Settings > Privacy > fatory data reset.
