Hard reset (factory reset; master reset)

A hard reset is a factory reset that returns a device to its original, out-of-the-box state. This includes all personal data, settings, and applications. Hard resetting a device is often necessary when it is not responding to traditional reset methods.

A hard reset should only be performed as a last resort, as it will delete all data on the device.

What is the difference between factory reset and hard reset?

The two terms are often used interchangeably, but there is a subtle difference. A factory reset refers to wiping the data and settings on the device and returning it to the state it was in when it left the factory. This is usually done to fix problems with the device or to prepare it for sale. A hard reset, on the other hand, refers to resetting the hardware of the device to its default state. This is usually done to fix hardware problems or to prepare the device for sale.

How do you master reset a factory reset?

1. Power off the device.
2. Press and hold the reset button for 20 seconds.
3. Power on the device. What happens when you do a master reset?
