Hello World!

Phone – Reset Android – Part 42

There are two ways of performing a hard reset on your HTC Desire. Both accomplish the same: Erasing all your data, including messages, contact list, installed applications and games. A hard reset will revert your HTC Desire into a factory default state, as if you just bought it. Maybe you want to do this before selling or giving away your phone. Maybe it is acting a bit sluggish and you just want to start over from zero with it, or even perhaps you are suffering something more extreme from your HTC Desire, as it may be completely freezed up.

Hard Reset your HTC Desire, the easy way

If you still have access to your Android OS, you may hard reset it from there. There are different steps for each different Android OS version:

Android OS 2.2: From the HOME Screen of your HTC Desire, navigate into the “Settings” menu. Select “SD & Phone Storage”. From that submenu select “Factory Data Reset”.

Android OS 2.1: From your HOME screen get into your “Settings” menu, Select “Privacy”, and from there choose “Factory Data Reset”.

Hard Reset your HTC Desire, the not so easy way

This hard reset method is specially useful if your phone is sluggish, freezed or working but in any unreliable way:

  1. First you need to power off your HTC Desire. If it is freezed into the ON position, just take off it’s battery, wait a couple of seconds and replace it back into the phone.
  2. Now you hold the “VOLUME -” key, and while holding it press the power button and hold it too until you see three skating Androids at the bottom of your screen.
  3. A menu will appear, you can navigate thru it with the volume buttons: Select “Bootloader”
  4. From Bootloader submenu, select “Clear Storage”
  5. Follow the onscreen instructions for a factory reset

After some seconds you will get your HTC Desire wiped out from all your personal data and ready to start a new life.

Time has come to hard reset your LG Optimus 3D phone. Maybe you are selling it, or just giving away. It may even got stuck or freezed. Whatever reason you got to perform a hard reset, we present you with two ways of doing it:

Reset LG Optimus 3D From Android

This may be seen as the easy, convenient way: The only eventual caveat is that you need to have your Android OS up and running on your Optimus 3D , as the procedure involves using certain options inside the settings menu:

  1. From your home screen, press the menu icon (on the bottom, the icon most to the left).
  2. Tap on Settings
  3. Search and Tap on Privacy, inside the Settings Menu
  4. Tap on Reset Phone
  5. Confirm the Hard reset Process

The no so easy way of hard reset Android on LG Optimus 3D

This alternative method is more forceful and may be the only method available if your LG Optimus 3D is in frozen state:

  1. Power your phone off (if it is Frozen, just pull of the battery, wait some seconds and reinsert it)
  2. Hold the HOME and Volume Down buttons.
  3. Press and hold the power button until the device turns on
  4. An on-screen menu will appear: Follow the instructions in there to reset your LG Optimus 3D

Please remember that a Hard Reset will erase everything inside your phone including your personal data, messages, contacts, installed apps, games, etc. Your LG Optimus 3D will revert to factory default state after performing any of these hard reset procedures.

The definitive way of erasing all your stuff from inside your Samsung Galaxy ACE is by doing a hard reset: When you reset Android, the process will erase all your contacts, messages, installed applications and games, leaving your Samsung Galaxy ACE as if it just had got out of Samsung factory. This is why this process is also called “to factory default” your Android phone. Please follow these instructions to accomplish it:

  1. With the phone powered off, press and hod the following buttons, at the same time: Volume Up, Center / Enter button and Power button.
  2. Your Samsung Galaxy ACE will boot into a factory menu. You can move between options from the menu with the Volume Down / Volume Up buttons.
  3. You need to get into this RESTORE Menu and from there you need to select Wipe Data / Factory Reset
  4. Select YES with the Select / Enter Button: phone will be factory restored.
  5. After finishing, confirm the option REBOOT NOW to restart your Android phone
  6. Wait some minutes (your Android phone needs to work a bit) and Voilá
