The factory reset in settings only deletes the settings, but does not rebuild the partition.
The full reset is actually done like this:
- turn off the phone
- wait 10 seconds
- press power and volume down buttons at the same time and hold them
- the phone turns on into a DOS looklike
- release the buttons, and press volume up to confirm
- now choose Restore from Recovery Partition
- wait till it completes and reboots the phone
Let me know if you still have issues after that.
