Performing a Hard Reset on a XDA Orbit 2

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 XDA pocket PC returns to its default settings and looses all information that is not recorded in ROM.

  • Press and hold the GPS/Messaging and Internet Explorer buttons, and at the same time, use the stylus to press the Reset button at the bottom of your device.
  • Release the Reset button, but continue pressing the GPS/Messaging and Internet Explorer buttons until a message comes up on the screen.
  • Release the buttons, and then press send on your device to perform the hard reset, or press any other button to cancel the reset.
