How to factory reset prestigio multipad 7.0 ultra plus tablet pc pmp 36 70b? It boots to gmail sign in page, then it says wrong password, though it's not connected to the internet, it doesn't even let me connect. I need to reset it


usb debugging mode is not enabled and I am stuck, can't login like this, and the tablet,isn't booting to recovery

  • That looks like an XY problem: what you really want is not a factory-reset, but passing by that lock, right? So I've just added the locked-out tag to your question; in its tag-wiki you can find some first-aid and links to useful related questions (I know your issue is solved by the accepted answer, so count this a hint for others coming across your post). – Izzy Jan 27 '15 at 17:24
  • @Izzy thanks, but i sold the tablet since i couldn't unlock it long ago and accepted the answer that was there, to give him some rep coz he put some effort and voted it up – Lynob Jan 27 '15 at 19:28
  • Thanks for the feedback, Fischer! So my pointer might prove even more helpful then :) – Izzy Jan 27 '15 at 19:32
  • @Izzy yes you're right – Lynob Jan 27 '15 at 19:51

If you cannot access the main UI, but the system powers up, boot in to recovery.

Try and find out what your recovery keys are (e.g. it's usually vol+, vol- and power on Samsung phones) online or by reading your device's manual, then holding them as your device boots.

Once in recovery, use the volume keys to select an option and power to use that tool, unless your device has a d-pad or older Android style buttons (Menu, Home etcetera).

Also: You can use adb to force the device to reboot to recovery mode if it is enabled, like this, in a terminal or command prompt, with the device connected to a USB port on the computer:

$ path/to/adb reboot recovery on Linux/Mac OS X; and

C:\> path\to\adb.exe reboot recovery on Windows

replace path/to/adb or path\to\adb.exe with the location of adb found in the Android SDK platform-tools folder (the SDK can be downloaded from http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html - choose SDK for an existing IDE)

  • i have the sdk, usb debugging mode is not enabled and I am stuck, can't login like this youtube.com/watch?v=eJXFAdh7UJg and the tablet,isn't booting to recovery, would I be able to force it using the sdk? – Lynob Jul 12 '14 at 15:00
  • Maybe you can get it to boot in to a Fastboot envrionment described on the CM site where you you can flash a recovery or hotboot a recovery image if you can find one. – galexite Jul 13 '14 at 7:10
  • would it work without usb debugging enabled? – Lynob Jul 13 '14 at 7:43
  • although you did not tell me if it works without debugging, and I doubt it would, you gave me some useful info I did not know, so thanks – Lynob Jul 20 '14 at 10:21
