Performing a Hard Reset on an O2 XDA

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.

  • Unscrew the stylus and use the smaller point of the top-half.
