Hello World!

Reset Android – Part 26

I will teach you how to reset Android on the LG Optimus G, a phone that was released in direct competition with the Samsung Galaxy s3 and at the time of this writing, still got plenty of adepts, due to its processing power, construction quality and onboard memory.

To carry out this hard reset Android process on your LG Optimus G, we will review the two most popular methods:

In the first one, we will achieve the desired effect by pressing a combination of buttons, starting with the phone powered off.

Alternatively, in the second method we will access the restore procedure from the settings menu itself (provided you still got a functional Android OS inside the phone).

As always, we remind you that the reset procedure will delete all files, settings and information which is not part of the Android operating system itself. You may want to perform a data backup in your LG Optimus G, i you can.

  2. Press the VOLUME DOWN  and POWER buttons at the same time,
  3. Wait for an internal recovery menu to appear and then release the buttons

You need to start in your home Android screen. From there, you open your setttings menu, and navigate into Settings> Backup and Restore> Factory data reset> Reset phone> Erase everything.

Wait a few seconds (or even a minute, this may be a lengthy process). When finished, the LG Optimus G  will reboot as if for the first time, into its original factory settings.

If your Samsung Galaxy S3 becomes clogged due to some misbehaving app or bad configuration, you can reset Android and get your phone back into factory default mode:

Hopefully it will behave as if just got out of the box!

The only drawback about Resetting Android into default mode is that such procedure will also delete all your contacts, messages, apps, games and personal configuration on your Samsung Galaxy S3.

Hence, if you still got access into your Samsung Galaxy S3 Android operative system, you may consider to perform a backup of all your essential data. We recommend you the G-Cloud backup tool.
