Using Eris after hard reset as a wifi device only
Sunday 16th of October 2011
Hi, I have a HTC Eris. the phone no longer has cell service but my son uses it with wifi for youtube and other apps he likes. i thought I could help the phone perform better if i did a hard reset but now after doing the hard reset and trying to power it back up it wants to activate the cell service. I can't seem to get around this step. is there a way i can bypass the cell service activation step and use it again as just a wifi device?thanks for the help,steve

Hard reset of phone. Still rooted
Saturday 14th of August 2010
So I had a sync icon that would not go away. Verizon told me the only way to get rid of it was to do a hard reset. I was just going to leave it but I am sure it is killing my battery. So I hard reset the phone and start to reinstall all apps. I figure that I will no longer be able to easy root the phone because app is not available. Well looks like my phone is still rooted, because one of the apps asked for superuser permission. Now my question is without the app, how do I unroot if i choose?
hard reset of a Yeahpad Pillbox7 tablet
Friday 11th of October 2013
hi,since yesterday, my Pillbox7 tablet hangs up at boot time. I end up with the Android splash-screen and nothing happens afterwards.Since i could not find the manual for the tablet, I found a thread about this issue on the Stackoverflow forum, and it is suggested to reset it by pushing simultaneously power-on + volume-up buttons.Unfortunately this seems to fail as it was reported by other people. Does someone know how to solve this issue? Is this issue related to the Android OS or to the hardware itself?I believe some updates simply screwed up things in my case.thanks for your valuable help.
What's the difference btwn a Hard Reset and a Factory Data Reset?
Monday 30th of December 2013
Was just about reset my Motion in order to simply start with a clean slate again (unrooted, stock). A general clearing out of sorts instead of going through all the crap apps I've installed in the last year.Backed up all the stuff I needed and was about to reset when I noticed that there are two methods of resetting to factory. One involves the following:How To Hard Reset A LG Motion 4G(MS770)1. Power off phone.2. Hold power and Volume down button( Until the phone virbrates).3. Keep tapping home and back( at the same time).4. Your either going to see a green robot or a menu screen.The other is simply using the menu in the Motion's System Settings to access the "Backup & reset" option and then pressing the "Factory Data Reset" item.Which one is best? Do they both accomplish exactly the same thing? Additionally, will utilizing either of these options result in needing to call MetroPCS to re-connect the phone? I've asked a similar question some months ago and people told me "no", that wouldn't be the case. Just in case, though... I'm asking.
how do I hard reset my sons Chinese android tablet if it has no volume buttons
Wednesday 19th of March 2014
My son was given a chinese tablet for xmas by his nan, so when he was given it all it came with is the cables and a user manual (the make and model are not known and i have installed several programs to try and find out but to no avail). Now he has managed to lock the screen after to many pass-code attempts. I have tried to do a hard reset but the tablet doesn't have volume button buttons but there is a reset at the back and I have tried many different combinations to start the bootloader but still no joy. The WiFi was turned off as it was not being used but the usb debug was turned on the device has not been rooted i have tried using the SDK manager SRS root and many others to try and solve this issue but again no joy. I did manage to find a universal driver for it to be seen in the device manager (and makes the device connected sound when i connect the usb) but it is still not showing as recognized. I am getting a little frustrated to say the least (manly as i am a computer hardware engineer lol) so please could someone give me some pointers as to what to doThanks in advance
Accidental hard reset of Samsung Galaxy S5 - How is it possible??
Monday 14th of July 2014
Today I had a very disturbing event with my Samsung Galaxy S5. It had an unintentional hard reset when the phone was "safely" placed in my pocket. How is that even possible?? I've never done a hard reset on S5, but I've read about how to perform it and seems impossible to do unintentionally. I had the phone with me when I went out running, something which I normally don't do. It was placed in my jacket pocket and wrapped in a plastic bag the entire time. The phone was (to my knowledge) on the entire time and the screen was locked with pin code. It could be I had the S Health app step counter activated, and I could hear a sound towards the end of my run when I passed 20 km. This could either be notification for 20000 steps for the day or a sound from OS or some other app. I finished running a few minutes after that. When I stopped running I noticed that my phone had restarted and asked for pin code. Hard reset was completed and all my apps and data were deleted.. Fortunately all accounts ensure that I have backup of the most important things. But I am still in shock and dis
