Now that I got your attention, it’s time to get straight to business and explain how you could do a master reset on this device. You might have noticed that the Li-Po 38Wh battery that it comes with is not removable, which is why it’s not possible to force the tablet to cool down.

However, you can still do a restore of all settings by following these steps:

  1. Shut the tablet down and fully charge it.
  2. Press Volume Down and Power and hold keys.
  3. Wait for the menu to load and release them.
  4. Confirm the Factory Reset and tap Yes.

All options can be highlighted using Volume Up and Down, and you can select any one of them with Power. You will, though, see quite clearly that the option to select is the one saying Wipe Data or Factory Data Reset. All important information and instructions will also show up on the screen, so there is no way to get confused.

  1. Go here and download CWM.
  2. Charge the tablet and launch the tool.
  3. Disconnect all cables and the restore will begin.

Different from all similar tools, this one does all the work by itself. Therefore, there are no instructions to follow. There will be a lot of different messages showing up on the screen, though, just so they keep you informed on the status and see what’s being erased, reinstalled and so on.
