Help me to keep this thread clean

A big thanks to www.hard-reset.eu for their resource

"Performing a factory data reset deletes all data, including downloaded applications, and resets the device back to its initial state—the state before you turned on the device for the first time.
Important Make sure to back up important data you have on the device before you perform a factory data reset."

1. Turn the G1 off. If it’s frozen on, take the battery out and put it back in the unit.

2. Hold the Home and Power keys down at same time for about 25 seconds. You will see a yellow triangle screen with exclamation point in the
middle.

Now to wipe the device clean:

3. Press Alt+L.
4. Press Alt+W for a factory reset.
5. Press the Home and Back keys again for about 25 seconds.
The device should then reset again and the hard reset is complete.

good post, very usefull post

hi subrata,

if you also post soft reset that will more power in thread.

like this,

HTC Dream Soft reset



A soft reset clears the device memory and closes running applications. Perform a soft reset when your device hangs or freezes, is running slower than normal, or an application is not performing properly. If a soft reset is performed when applications are running, unsaved information will be lost.
To perform a soft reset
1. Remove the back cover.
2. Remove the battery for a few seconds.
3. Re-install the battery, replace the back cover, then turn on the device

To remove the back cover
1. Make sure the device is turned off.
2. Hold the device sideways with the control buttons on the right.
3. Slide the screen panel up to reveal the keyboard and the back cover release tab.
4. Gently push down the release tab with your finger until the back cover disengages from the device.
5. Pull the back cover out then set it aside.


thanks your great work

Motorola MB501 Quench

How can I make a hard reset on this model? I have done the following:

1. Holding the Camera button while turning on your phone,
2. When prompted hit the Volume-Down rocker button to go into Recovery Mode.
3. After you get into Recovery Mode,

But I cannot do the following, because this model does not have a keyboard.

4. Press ALT+L to reset, then Menu+Back to reboot.


I need to hard reset this phone because it is not reading the sim card anymore. The client tried the wrong subsidy code many times.
