Different Hard reset/factory wipe methods for Android Tablet

Hard reset or factory wipe is a method of formatting any Android device ( tablet or mobile).  By doing hard reset all the apps and files that are installed or created by the user will  deleted. Even the memory card will get formatted.  So before going for hard reset or factory swipe, it is suggested to remove the memory  card if you do not want data to be erased

    Hello, I have ZH&K z9000 tab. Is hard reset possible for this?After pressing the power button, volume up & down together what appears is Factory Mode with more other options. What to do next?

    • Switch off ur tablet
      Hold Volume up and power button
      Out of the option appear, select recovery mode
      Here you will see Android logo with exclamation mark, press power key to enter recovery mode
      Select wipe data and then select Yes-delete all user data
      Gadget will reboot and reset the pattern
      It will cost your data, in order to recover your password use volcano box

      • Drama Lover Min

        no option appeared, only the lying android with red exclamation point can be seen. no response after pressing the power key

        • Then try pressing the home or power + volume down or random key combination. If you have reached till exclamation symbol. Then all you have to do is press the correct key combination to enter into the recovery mode.

          • Drama Lover Min

            woohh…so I guess it’s up to my luck now.

    I never found the recovery sequence using the physical buttons but I managed to get the device recognised in windows through USB.
    Basically when it’s stuck on the boot logo plug in the USB cable and keep pressing repeatedly the power button, about 10 times or more until windows detects the device.
    Then I was able to reflash my device using my manufacturers firmware and flash tool.
    Now I am happy it’s working and hope this helps anyone else with similar tablet.

    Hi

  • kd0ama

    I have a table that I want to throw against the wall, its a 10.1 google Android 4.03 IRulu tablet pc 8GB DDR3. its stuck on the password screen, I’ve tried any and all passwords I’ve used and nothing gets it past the pw page, anyhow I tried the soft reset- nothing happened and I’ve tried to find the owners manual got no place with that, checked to see if my google password would work but nothing happened, I’ve connected it to my desktop (which is running windows 8.1) via USB cable and it finds the tablet as removable disk G and also removable disk F. how can I use my desktop to get into or bypass this password page and reset the tablet so I can use it… this is driving me nuts. Thank you for any and all help you might be able to give me…

  • Smith

    wow…that reset worked,…i was just about to buy it over again. lil $49 Korean Android Tablet fell in a full bubblebath to the bottom, i instantly retrieved it, let it dry out for a week, and the very spot where the Passcode is entered across 3 digits was damaged, and so I couldn’t access anything, til I came to this website 3 months later and now It’s back, and thanks to the screen adjustment when i tilt the screen display from landscape to portrait I can still enter my passcode if I wanted to use it again. I followed the directions and had to scroll way down PAST the “this cannot be done” message to finally see the “wipe all user data”….. Thankyou So much! Hoo HooOOOOOOOOOOO

        • With the Touchmate PortoTab tablet we have faced the same problem.
          Check the hard reset video of Tocuhmate portotab. Link is in the table above.

    • After you see the Android repair symbol connect your tab to the computer and download the Android multi tool software. Open the tool and select the option 8.

    • NK

      you need to factory reset your penta, try switching it on several times.. if it does not switch on.. leave it on the ‘logo screen’ and put it to charge, it might switch on automatically! but as soon as it is on do factory reset.. and DO NOT delete any apps that has already been set up, this is what causes the penta to misbehave!!! i had the same problem.

      2. Hold HOME and RED POWER down for 25 seconds until you see a triangle with an exclamation mark in it.
      Keep holding it down even though the G1 logo shows up.

      3. Now you can do 4 things. Home+Back reboot system now – (Soft Reboot)
      Alt+L – Toggle log text display – (Toggles between the exclamation and menu options)
      Alt+S – apply sdcard:update.zip
      Alt+W – Wipe data/factory reset

    What about a tablet PC i have tried holding down the volume button and pressing the power button. which is not working, neither is it working when i turn it on and after 2 seconds holding down the volume key. I can not get onto anything on the device as my daughter had the tablet and input the wrong screen lock too many times and although I know my gmail and password it is not letting me log in even though I have internet connection. Just keeps saying invalid. Therefore I can not access my settings to do it through the device. I also cannot do it through my PC as it says it needs trouble shooting and i can not change the USB option as it will not let me. Any help please?
