Huawei Honor 2 (U9508) Hard / Soft Reset Guide

The Huawei Honor U9508 is a powerful and relatively inexpensive smartphone featuring a quad-core Huawei K3V2 chipset and 8 MP camera. It was released in October 2012 and has continued to compete in the increasingly crowded quad-core marketplace since then. If you own this phone and are experiencing sluggish response times, misbehaving apps or other software problems, you may be able to repair it using a built-in hard reset mechanism that will restore your phone to its factory state. If you catch the phone in the middle of a software glitch and it stops responding, you can also use a soft reset to quickly restart the phone and continue using it.

It’s important to know that the hard reset option will delete all of your personal data from the phone, including any applications that you’ve downloaded. Incidentally, this makes the option useful for those who would want to sell one of these phones without giving away all of their personal information to its new buyer.

Honor 2 Hard Reset instructions:



These are the steps to take if this is something you’d like to do with your Huawei Honor 2:

  1. Enter your Phone Settings screen.
  2. Tap on the Backup & Reset menu.
  3. Backup your data (if you haven’t already) and then tap on Factory Reset.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions until the Delete All option comes up. Tap on it to reset the phone.
  5. The phone will shut down and restart, completely whipping all data.

What about a Soft Reset?

If you find yourself using the phone when it suddenly hangs and becomes unresponsive, it may be necessary to perform a soft reset in order to get your Honor 2 working again quickly. Thankfully, an easy way to do this has been built into the hardware of the phone, although if you find yourself having to perform soft resets too frequently, it might be time for the other kind.
HONOR 2This restoration method will also have an option for performing a factory reset available, but it’s recommended, when possible, to use just the classic approach explained below. This method will not ask you so many times to confirm that you want to do a hard reset, and it won’t remind you to backup your data beforehand. It’s basically the same process, just performed in another way.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Hold the Volume Up + Power buttons down for 5 seconds.
  2. The phone should quit whatever it was doing and enter Restore Mode.
  3. Navigate again to Restart (or Reboot in some regions) using the Volume buttons for scrolling and Power to confirm.
  4. The phone will shut down quickly and then turn itself back on, in a fresh new form.
