Master Reset Instructions

If you’re passing HTC EVO V 4G on to someone else or HTC EVO V 4G has a persistent problem that cannot be solved, you can perform a factory reset (also called a hard reset).

Warning: Factory reset will permanently delete all your data and customized settings, and will remove any applications you’ve downloaded and installed. Be sure to back up any data and files you want to keep before you do a factory reset.

Performing a factory reset from settings

1. From the Home screen, press , and then tap Settings.

2. Tap Storage > Factory data reset.

3. Tap Reset phone, and then tap Erase everything.

Performing a factory reset using hardware buttons

If you can’t turn HTC EVO V 4G on or access settings, you can still perform a factory reset by using the hardware buttons on HTC EVO V 4G.

1. Remove the battery, wait for a few seconds, then reinsert the battery.

2. Press and hold the Volume down button, and then press and hold the Power button.

3. Wait for the screen with the three Android images to appear, and then release the Power and Volume down buttons.

4. Press Volume down to select FACTORY RESET, and then press the Power button.

Note: A hard reset should only be performed after all other troubleshooting options have been exhausted or if you want to remove everything from your unit at the same time.

A hard reset removes all information from your device and returns it to a state just like it has never been used before. All contacts, messages, emails, 3rd party applications, etc. will need to be reinstalled after performing a hard reset.

To perform a hard reset, from the Home screen, press Menu and tap Settings > Privacy > Factory data reset. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete. This process will take 5-10 minutes.

1. Turn off your phone

2. Press and hold the volume down button (located on the right side panel), and then press the Power button

3. When the display turns on, release the volume down button

4. Use the volume buttons to select CLEAR STORAGE, and then press the Power button

5. All data will be deleted from your phone.
