How to Factory Reset Your Digital2 DII-D201208-10XX Tab

Follow these steps to reset the DII-D201208-10XX Tab to it's factory default state.

The DII-PAD was one of the first budget tablets released by Digital2. It's low cost, and not particularly feature packed by modern standards, but it does get the job done on a shoestring. The only real problem for those willing to work within it's framework, is the difficulty involved in performing a Factory Reset. Like most other D2 tabs, this one has a seemingly random set of button sequences to reset it. The guide below will show you how to complete a Factory Reset of your Digital2 DII-D201209, or DII-D201210 Tab.

Tips and Suggestions for Factory Resetting Digital2 Tablets

The following tips will help reset your D2 Android Tab to it's factory default state.

  • Make sure your device is fully charged. Losing power part way through resetting an Android device to a factory default state can leave your device in an unrecoverable state.
  • Back up your data. Any information on your D2 Tablet will be deleted when you perform a Factory Reset.
  • Do not plug in or unplug your device to any power or USB ports while you are performing a factory restore, unless you have been specifically instructed to do so by alternate instructions from Digital2.
