I am experimenting with my phone quite a lot, and I need to do a factory reset quite often (several times per day).

Everything works fine, but it vibrates several times during the factory reset. And it's really annoying. Maybe someone know, how to turn those off - some setting maybe?

I'm using Android 2.3.6, Alacritous v3 Mod.

I would think that is a normal operation for factory reset - it does vibrate to let you know that the reset is in progress. – t0mm13b Sep 8 '12 at 19:01

I'm assuming you are using the menu found under settings when the phone is fully booted. Doing a factory reset from clockworkmod recovery shouldn't make the phone vibrate. Boot to recovery and choose wipe data/factory reset. The effect is the same as the menu in the settings.

Thank you for great idea:) – Algirdas Sep 10 '12 at 20:03
Yeah, I'd even say you shouldn't reset the device from the regular settings menu, better to do it from CWM as you'll have quick access to ROM installs and all that. – pzkpfw Jan 6 '13 at 21:26
