    How to HARD RESET Droid Bionic

    well i bricked my phone day one playing around with it, so tried hard reset to no avail lol :'( o well. anyway here is how you do it since the ones i found online are wrong.

    1. hold down BOTH volume up and down, and press and hold power.
    2.scroll down with volume down to recovery
    3. select recovery with volume up
    4. at the droid triangle screen again press BOTH volume up and down
    5. scroll to wipe data/factory reset
    6. select with power button
    7. scroll down to yes with volume down
    8. select yes with power button
    9. wait for it to do its thing.
    10. select reboot now with power button.

    now you have performed a hard reset on your phone.

    I am not responsible if you screw it up, and this WILL delete everything off your phone and put it back to factory settings. If your phone is still messed up you will need to return it.

    How does a hard reset differ from a standard factory reset. I did the factory just because the sales rep set it up for me at costco and i wanted to do it. So i loaded it up with crap until it started acting funny then i reset it and started fresh.

    it essentially does the same thing. only thing is if you get stuck where you cant get to your settings menu this is how you reset the phone. in my case it was stuck in a boot loop where it won't boot the phone fully, so i tried this reset it, but its still messed up. verizon told me to take it in tomorrow for an exchange, so not a huge deal
