Non-NOOBS factory reset (without reformat on seperate pc)

Is there some way to reset raspbian without doing any NOOBS stuff and without using a seperate pc (my adapter is kaput)?
I could uninstall and reset everything my self, but i am wondering if there is a faster way.

Re: Unallocated space on Raspbian

Too small to be any use. I believe the reason for these gaps is to try and make sure the partitions are aligned to an SD card page boundary for performance reasons. Well, can I reformat them? Will it do any harm? Yes, it may do harm because before you can format you need to partition which can be a...

Unallocated space on Raspbian

So I was fixing partitions on a micro SD card for my friend's Pi on my Pi (funny right? :lol: ), when I found out that my SD card has some random unallocated space (nothing more than 6MB) and wondered what that space can be used for? At first, I thought that you could partition it into linux-swap sp...

I have added coins (3 quarters on large + 8 sticks of lead and 1 dime + 4 sticks of lead on small) The highest the temperature has been is 68c. With out the...

Using pencil lead to cool a Rpi?

My RPi has gotten to really high temps (ie: 70.9c) and I don't really want to buy a fan, so I tried using pencil lead (0.7) to cool it down b/c it is a good heat conductor. It managed to cool it only by 1c.

Is this a good idea?
