a way to hard reset?
I tried the privacy factory thing
and it just kind of resets it, but my wallpaper i changed too was there
and some third party apps where
is there another way to hard reset with buttons or something?
i tried the home and power buttonthing i found when i google searched for droid hard reset but it doesntwork.
Are you sure you held them both down at the same time...AND for 25 seconds? If you let up too early it just restarts. You need to wait until the triangle appears.
Edit: Atleast that's how it was on the G1. Here is the only page in the manual that says anything relevant to reseting. http://www.engadget.com/photos/motor...ide-0/2406260/
home button is a touch button, you cant really hold it down,.
I turned off phone
touched and held home and power button, the motorola symbol came up i kep helping
then eventually i say the droid screen shot
what am i doing wrong.
this isnt a hero
its a droid
totally different and 2.0 android
hero is 1.5 or 1.6
To Perform a Reset
- Open the Applications Tray. (arrow pointing up located in the middle at the bottom of the display screen)
- Touch Settings
- Touch Privacy
- Touch Factory data reset
- Touch Reset Phone
- Touch Erase Everything
The problem here is the sync with Google. Prior to doing the reset make sure you deactivate the sync. If I read correctly this will remove your Google-server side settings; then proceed with the reset.
This isnt much help but i read somewhere there is a combination with the physical keyboard to do a hard reset.
FYI if you do a hard reset you will loose your address book. I had some software issues with my phone (wouldn't recieve Email) and verizion had me do a hard reset and it fixed the issue, luckily my numbers are still n my old phone and all i have to do is go back to a verizion store to have them transfered. Verizions daily back up update does not work with the driod OS.
Your address book should be in GMail - let it sync first if you can or find a way to get them into GMail first so this way they are backed up on Google's servers.
BTW when you get the yellow triangle you cacn hit Alt+L to see the options in recovery mode, but Alt+W will wipe the device.
