We publish a note of our regular reader how to perform hard reset Galaxy S2. This is an instruction from the first hand, so it will definitely help you.
For the last few days I had problems with my smartphone Galaxy S2. Basically, it constantly hung up and did not react to pressing.
Today, for the first time in 4 years, I decided to perform hard reset Galaxy S2 (GT I9100), which runs on Android 4.1.2 operating system. So you can read a short note about how I did it.
Until today, I did not know how to perform hard reset Galaxy S2, so I began to google. After 30 minutes on different websites I found necessary information. The result did not take long .
- First, to perform hard reset Galaxy S2, you need to turn off Android smartphone.
- Then hold volume up button, home button and power button for 10 seconds. Some secs later you will see Android recovery menu.
- Here is the message “Volume up / down to move highlight; Power button to select”. I think it does not need to be explained.
- Now select option “wipe data / factory reset”.
- Next, from the huge list of No, select the only Yes item that is highlighted as “Yes – delete all user data“.
- Hard Reset Galaxy S2 will be performed. The first menu appears again, but now we only need to restart the phone. Select the first option “reboot system now“.
After hard reset Galaxy S2, I decided to completely erase my USB storage. First, I save everything that was important for me (photos, sms, apps and contacts), then went to the phone settings and erased USB storage.
- Go to the phone menu “Settings“.
- Then find “Storage” section.
- Scroll down to the bottom.
- Click on “Erase USB storage“.
- Agree to clear USB storage and click on “Erase USB storage” again.
That’s all! As you can see to make hard reset Galaxy S2 is not so difficult. After that I download all apps that I had from Google Play Store and enjoy my “new” smartphone.
