Performing a Normal (Soft) Reset on a HTC Atom
A normal reset is sometimes referred to as a soft reset. A normal reset stops all running applications but does not erase any programs or saved data.
Caution be sure to save any unsaved data before performing a normal reset since a normal reset erases all unsaved data.
- Locate the reset button hole on the HTC Atom unit.
- Use the stylus tip to lightly press the reset button. The pocket PC will restart and display the Today screen.
Performing a Hard Reset on a HTC Atom
A full reset is sometimes referred to as a hard reset. Perform a full reset when you want to clear all settings, programs and data from RAM.
Caution if you perform a full reset, your HTC Atom returns to its default settings and looses all information that is not recorded in ROM.
- Press POWER, and at the same time, use the stylus to press the RESET button. You will be presented with a blue screen with the SEND (GREEN) and END (RED) buttons.
- To confirm hard reset, press SEND and END at the same time, and your device will be set back to factory default settings. If you do not confirm within 10 seconds, your device will soft reset.
