As odd as it may sound, I found a solution in the net and it worked for me twice already !! Put the phone in a bright light, strong bulb or direct sun, and do a hard reset!! Worked twice for me.

No. Even if you could add such a restriction within Android, it would still be possible for an attacker to boot into recovery or into fastboot mode and reset the phone from there. If you're trying to protect the confidentiality of your data (i.e. stop an attacker accessing it), then encrypting the phone is what's required for that. If you're trying to ...

This is a weird issue that others have suffered from I believe... One person on Android Central recommended disabling the news republic app that is baked into sense. Some people had noticed success in doing this....

Firstly, letting the battery run dry and then charge (deep discharge) is harmful to the life of battery and is never recommended in normal usage Perhaps, this has caused the battery reset logic to go awry. I am not sure how this would cause the reset of your device, but as an interim measure resetting battery logic as recommended below may help This was ...

Reading the comments above, I can think your volume up button may be broken? But remember, you can perform a factory reset from the Fastboot mode too, simply connect your phone to the computer, install Minimal ADB & Fastboot (Windows), run it then type fastboot -w[press enter] the phone should be reset. Also ADB lets you do many things on your phone ...

The approach you are taking is not worth it for you simply because: USB debugging needs to be enabled beforehand for using any adb command on a device. Since your mother probably would have never felt (and why would she anyway?) the need to enable it, assume it to be disabled. Since debugging can only be enabled either manually by the user under Settings ...

I'd assume since you were willing to do a factory reset, that you're also willing to forego all the data currently possessed on your phone. You could hard reset your device through the following method. Procedure Switch your phone off. Wait at least 15 seconds before simultaneously pressing the volume down key + power button until the device vibrates. ...

I faced a similar situation. Following steps worked for me. Some of the steps might be redudent. 1) restart your phone 2) reset network settings (Setting> back and restore ) 3) change the phone bluetooth name. (I assume this is the solution) 4) set the bluetooth device in pairing mode (long press the power key). And it worked for me. Probably, executing ...

Factory Reset: Factory resets are generally done to remove the data entirely from a device, the device is to be started again and requires the need of re ...

Hard-reset does not wipe data. It is a forceful way of restarting the device. To put it simply, Factory-reset, is to restore the device to the state it was in when you got the new device (excepting the upgrades) and is a sledge hammer approach, while hard-reset is restarting device to get rid of minor irritants . Which approach you want to take depends on ...

Because you are currently in an unknown state, the "best" option here is to reflash the factory images manually. Google provides factory images and instruction on their Factory Images for Nexus Devices page, and you could also upgrade to 6.0.1 if you wanted to. Going through this procedure will return your Nexus device to it's factory condition, except ...

Password protecting TWRP (lockscreen) 've had people ask enough for a protected TWRP that I'm creating this page as a response so I don't have to retype.

I've had the same problem with my HTC One M7, but the vol down or vol up with power button didn't force it to reboot. I was messing around with the phone and a call came in. I was able to answer the call and after the call my phone went back to normal! So I'd suggest trying to call the phone from another phone.

If it is an external storage try formatting the external SD card. You can do it in the computer or in Android it should be under Storage.

Reading your question a second time, I just see you're on the complete wrong track (a thing we call the XY problem): Now for many reasons I would like to factory reset my device to it's original ROM That's not possible at all. You overwrote this when flashing MIUI (for details, see our factory-reset tag-wiki). You'll have to get yourself a ROM file to ...

Turn the phone off, or take the battery out. Put the battery back in and hold VOLUME UP and the HOME key, then the POWER. Hold all three until you see it says recovery mode. When you get to the android, press both volume buttons together and it will show the recovery menu. The rest should be self explanatory.

Had similar issue with G2 after display replacement. Unfortunately this could be solved only by replacing the proximity sensor itself (via warranty repair). From the information I found out on the web The most disturbing issue was that I could not unlock the phone in dark light environment (the screen immediately turned off when I tried to go past the ...

This is most likely a software issue, but you can't be 100% sure until you flash a new ROM and see if it works. If you find a stock ROM, then it won't void the warranty, so it should be safe to try. You can find a lot of stock ROMs here.

You need to differentiate between a "hard reset" (hover the mouse over that tag: a forced reboot/shutdown by removing power (take out the battery, usually)) and a "factory reset" (again, mouse-over: A factory reset results in a full reset of an Android device to the original settings of the currently-installed ROM.). hard-reset: here it's unlikely (though ...

Have you tried the standard Android hard reset? I heard this works for all Android phones. turn it off (if you cannot shoot it down, remove the battery). hold both volume-buttons and the home-button and then hold the power button. about 5 seconds use this at your own risk! You will lose all your installed data and get a clear reset to shipping settings, ...
