With a user-friendly interface, the phone is one of the best choices you can make if you’re looking for a budget Android phone that works well. However, many customer comments have shown that the phone sometimes hangs and freezes, interfering with their user experiencing. If the same happened to you, our recommendation is to perform a hard reset on the Micromax Bolt A35.
For those of you who don’t know, a master reset procedure is not only going to get you rid of most software-related issues very quickly, but it will also renew its operating system, as well as its memory. This means that all the data you stored on the internal memory of the smartphone will be erased by the end of the operation. To avoid losing anything important, you should back up all the files you’d like to save.
Featuring a great TFT touchscreen display, the device comes with a dual SIM, an expandable storage capacity of 16 GB and a 1 GHz Cortex-A5 processor. The phone runs on Android OS V2.3.5 (Gingerbread) is also equipped with a 2 MP camera that can take pictures and record videos. In terms on internet connectivity, Micromax Bolt A35 has a Wi-Fi 802 hotspot and enables access to applications such as Gmail, Youtube, Google Talk, Maps and many others.
How to Restore the Micromax Bolt
As previously discussed, you shouldn’t forget saving the data on your phone before you get started with the procedure. This can be done by connecting it to the PC using the USB cable to create a separate folder that will play the role of a backup. Alternatively, you can also download the Phone Copy app that is specially designed for Android devices and will guide you through all the steps.
Once you’re done creating the backup, you’re safe to move to the next step. This one will be to download and install the Android Multi Tools v1.02 application that allows for a very simple master reset. When the app creates an icon on the PC you can move on to the process itself that can be started by following the instructions:
- Switch the phone off, remove the battery and place it back in.
- Simultaneously press and hold the Volume Down and Power keys for 20-30 seconds.
- Once you enter Fastboot Mode connect the phone to the PC with the USB cable.
- Run the Android Multi-Tools app on the computer and choose Wipe Data from the options.
- The device will automatically reboot and be ready for use in a couple of minutes.
The Micromax Bold A35 has now been reset to its original software and settings, having a blank memory and all software problems solved. You are safe to begin restoring the data using the backup you previously made and you can use the phone the same as you did before.
