Having looked around hither and thither now for a night as to how to factory reset a Nokia 2.2, I am still a bit confused and unable to do it.
Holding volume-down + power on brings me to a boot screen saying "=> FASTBOOT mode", but no buttons are having effect after that. Apparently the next step is to connect it via usb cable to a Windows computer with some specific tool or another installed on it?
I've seen people in youtube videos apparently using a Windows tool called 'InfinityBox AST' , and I have tried running that in a Windows VM, but for some (in my opinion) suspect reason, 'InfinityBox' decides to detect that's it's being ran under VirtualBox, and instantly refusing to launch with a message specifically stating that it wont run on a Virtual Machine.
(This 'vm detector' behavior is enough of a reason to me being quite reluctant and suspicious to even having attempted to run the utility trough Wine/Proton)
- Is there really no way to factory reset a Nokia 2.2 TA-1188 cellphone without requiring an actual physical (Windows) PC in addition to some shady unofficial utility made by neither Google nor Nokia?
- If not possible without a PC, is there some Linux software solution able to perform the task?
