LG – Reset Android

If you have a LG G4 Stylus and you want to reset Android in order to fix eventual errors and slowness behaviors, the following tutorial will help you:

We’ll teach you how to successfully reset Android by using two different methods.

In case you do not have access to the Android operating system because of a serious error or a blocking pattern you can not remember, you can apply the second method.

However, bear in mind that if you want to unlock IMEI or remove a Google account already present on your LG G4 Stylus, none of these methods will work.
