How to seriously obliterate my HTC One data?

How do I go about erasing the data on my HTC One beyond recovery? I'm selling it on soon.

A factory reset will suffice, do a few consecutive resets if you're feeling particularly paranoid.

Then remember to ask the GCHQ and NSA to wipe the data they have too ;)

Yep. And remember to take their word, too ;)

Nah, reset a couple of time, And if you wanna be sure, sync some meaningless rubbish to it inbetween resets - some boring documentary about flour manufacturing... to overwrite your
"research" data ;). :p
