Sometimes your phone may be malfunctioning and you will want to factory reset it in order to letting it work fine. But unfortunately it might be telling you system error if you try to access the phone settings. And this will hinder you from factory resetting your phone. But don’t panic there is another way which you can use to reset your Android phone apart from using the settings method. Follow the simple steps below to use this alternative method called recovery mode.
Resetting your Android phone through recovery mode
Before you begin the reset procedure, you will need to completely power your device off. (If the device is frozen, you can pull the battery out to turn it off.)
Press and hold the recovery buttons. The buttons vary from device to device, so you may need to look up the instructions for your particular phone. You will need to press and hold the buttons for a few seconds. Some of the more common button combinations include:
Volume Up + Power button
Volume Down + Power button
If none of the above work, do a web search for your phone’s model. Once the recovery menu opens, you can navigate the menu with the volume buttons. You may need to open the Recovery menu to find the Factory Reset mode. Use the Power button, some models use the camera button, to select your menu options.
You will be asked to confirm the factory reset.
Wait for the restore process to compete. After your phone resets, it will be set back to factory defaults and will be like you just bought it and everything will be working fine again.
