I got the recovery menu at startup by pressing volume - button but i am not getting Factory reset option over there.


options are there.

What should i do.?

  • Please edit your question to give more details about the error. Exactly when does the error message appear? What does it look like? What is the exact message? – Dan Hulme Oct 8 '13 at 8:13

    Good work. If you want this information to be useful to future visitors, you should edit your question to say what phone these are the instructions for. Not every Android phone has the same recovery menu. – Dan Hulme Oct 9 '13 at 10:25
