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.
