Performing a Normal (Soft) Reset on an O2 XDA 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.
To perform a soft reset:
- Use the stylus to press and hold the Reset button, as shown below.
Performing a Hard Reset on an O2 XDA 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 pocket PC returns to its default settings and looses all information that is not recorded in ROM.
To perform a hard reset:
- Press and hold the power button, and then use the stylus to press the soft reset button at the same time.
- Be sure you have backed up all your data in an mini SD card or on your PC before performing a hard reset.
