Restoring the Galaxy Nexus to Factory Soft
When the Galaxy Nexus is restored to factory settings, all of your data, including accounts, apps or media content will be erased. So before you proceed to reset, you will need to backup all personal information and charge the battery, at least up to 70%. You can also do an online backup, or using an external memory device. Now here’s how to do it:
- Turn off the phone and then press and hold the Volume keys and the Power button at the same time, until the Android picture appears and then release. In this menu you can cycle up and down with the volume keys.
- While being in the Recovery mode, press and hold the Power key and Volume UP button until a blue menu appears.
- Now select Wipe data/factory reset and then select Yes-delete all user data, all of these using the Power button to confirm.
- After the process is complete, chose to reboot the system.
There is an easier method to reset your smartphone from the Android menu itself. This is best used when the phone can actually use the operating system and has no major faults.
- From the Applications scree, go to settings menu.
- Under the Personal menu, select Backup & Reset, then Factory data reset.
- Now chose Reset phone, and finally tap on Erase everything. If asked for, enter your personal password to confirm or draw the lock screen pattern.
- Now wait a couple of minutes for the process to complete and reboot your phone.
