How to Restore the Lenovo S920

When it comes to restoring this Lenovo model back to factory software, there are two solutions that we recommend you use. The first one will use the settings and menu in order to do the same thing that’s performed by using the hard reset buttons, as shown in the second one. In case you don’t have access to the main menu anymore or if the smartphone’s keyboard is stuck, you should move on to the second option listed in this article.

First of all, you can try doing this:

  1. Lenovo-S920-HardSwitch the phone off and ensure that it is fully charged.
  2. Open the Menu and go to Settings.
  3. Then select Storage and go for Factory Data Reset.
  4. Choose the Reset Phone option, and then tap Erase Everything.
  5. The phone will begin the reboot and should not be interrupted.

If for some reason, the previous option didn’t work, we recommend turning the phone off, removing the battery and the SIM card and leaving it this way for a couple of minutes. You can then place everything back into the device and turn it back on. If this didn’t enable the keyboard and you still can’t access the menu, switch the phone back off and do the following:

  1. Press the Power and Volume Up keys and hold for 10 seconds.
  2. Use volume keys to select Reset Device and Power to confirm.
  3. Choose Wipe Data in case the previous options didn’t show up and wait.
  4. When the warning appears, read it and wait for the reboot to be complete.

Please don’t forget that this operation will erase your files. It is your sole responsibility to create a backup previous to performing the hard reset. Make sure that you do so and use this one in order to restore your files after the hard reset. We do not bear any responsibility for the lost data in case you didn’t follow the instructions.
