Actually I've been talking about this topic that I wrote the article "How to Samsung Galaxy Mini is locked". However, because many Android users who use mobile phones and other brands of this type are asking how fix Android phones that will not start, boot loop, forget the pin, enter the wrong password or pattern (pattern) lock, so in this article I will inform the way did factory reset through Recovery Mode Android phone more generally.
What is a Factory Reset (Factory Data Reset) Android?
Factory reset is a way to restore the software mobile phone / tablet Android to like new condition out of the factory. Factory reset in general can solve nearly all the problems caused by software defects. For the record, the factory reset will erase all data and applications are stored in the internal memory of the phone / tablet Android.
In general, Factory Reset can be done through the Settings menu (settings)> Privacy (privacy)> Factory Data reset (factory data reset). However, if the cell phone condition will not start or do not want to go into the menu, then to do a factory reset, go through recovery mode.
What is Android Recovery Mode?
Recovery mode is basically Android is an Android menu useful for recovery or repair damaged Android software. In some types of mobile phones, software upgrades can also be done directly through the recovery mode. Not all tablets / phones Android has a recovery mode, but in some types of Android, this can be overcome by installing a third-party recovery mode, for example ClockwordMod recovery or xRecovery.
Recovery mode is useful if you experience the following:
- If Android phones can not start or just stop in the logo only (commonly called Android boot loop). This can be caused by several things, such as an application is due to error or just install applications that are not compatible with the type of phone (in many cases, after installing the font changer).
- When the Android phone to be powered on, but did not want to respond to input from the user, such as touch screen Android unwilling or unable to get into the phone menu / tablet.
- If you forget your PIN, password or you too much to experiment draw the pattern (pattern) lock Android phones that cause you can not get into the menu.
- Damages other Android software.
To perform factory reset via recovery mode in general can be done in two easy steps. But before, do with your own risk (DWYOR) or risk borne ok ;)
