Once you have "Wipe data and Factory reset" highlighted, you should press the power button to select that option. You should then press the power button again with the word "Yes" highlighted. If your device stop working at any time during this process, you'll need to hold the power button to restart the device.

How do I Factory Reset an Android Phone with a Chinese Factory Reset Menu?

I need to Factory Reset my Android Tablet but every time I press the power and volume buttons a menu of 19 options comes up in Chinese! How do I know which option is the correct one?

The 5th or 6th option down should start with two Chinese characters, and is then followed by e MMC. The translation of this is 'wipe e MMC', which is essentially the factory data / reset button. Select this option to start your Factory Reset.

With Chinese phones, you do not need to use other options, and there is no confirmation. The wipe simply starts, and completes by wiping your phone. Here is an image of the option you will want to select:

All apps crash on reboot and freezes my tablet?

I have a Yoga tablet 8 and I installed KingUser Root to change icons, now suddenly each time it boots I have "I'm sorry this app crashed " messages for every app installed. I tried going into Recovery but it seems Kinguser installed a custom Chinese Recovery, I don't even need Root anymore. How can I go back to original Recovery and remove root

My HTC one M8 has been locked?

I have tried the hard reset but I always come to the same spot where I can't go any further because I can't understand the language

You can always draw the hieroglyphs on this site. Click the pen in the search bar to draw them and find the English equivalents.

However, your phone might have the standard hieroglyphs that can be found at https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzXR6Yw_9BnYVHdZa2FWTEdQYUE/view?usp=sharing .

Here is the legend:

  • 1. Factory model
  • 2. Auto test
  • 3. Manual test
  • 4. Individual test
  • 5. Test result
  • 6. Debug test options
  • 7. Wipe eMMC
  • 8. Version info
  • 9. Reboot phone

You have to select the 7th option first. Afterward, the 9th.

Change Region Code of S5 (Can I change the code XEO to BTE?)

Hello, is it possible to change the region code of a Galaxy S5? I bought the phone in Poland. When I perform a Factory Reset, the first language shown, is Polish. I flashed the phone with the newest British version G900FXXU1ANCE. But after a Factory Reset the first language is also Polish. Kies3 also is in a Polish version. Can I change the code XEO to BTE? Thanks

Hi! I wanted to flash the recovery mode my Samsung Galaxy Tab SM-T311?

I have already downloaded the t311 tar.md5 file on my laptop, but when I open ODIN 3.9, it will say the TAR file is valid but when I press the down button+ power+ home, I will see Chinese characters, which I can read. But when I press volume up+power+ home, I will see recovery mode, fast boot, normal boot. When I choose recovery mode, I will get another screen with green not opened stomach caution sign saying aucune command meaning in French 'no command', but when I shot it down, it starts well. The device is rooted with KingRoot app. I want to flash because when I try to play a certain game, it says no ROMs available. Please need your help

Please refer to our tutorial on how to unroot Samsung phones by flashing official firmware. You can also download a newer version of ODIN. In step 1, please open this web page with a list of ROMs. Select exactly your country and carrier (if applicable) and download the file. It looks like, as step 7 says, you need to press the volume-up button when you see the Chinese characters, to connect your phone to ODIN (use the original Samsung cable that came with the device).

Chinese letters in the download mode may also mean that your Samsung Galaxy Tab is just a good copy of the original device. The recovery menu is also unusual. Please see our tutorial on how to spot fake Galaxy phones. If your phone is not genuine, then you might be out of luck with writing the original ROM onto the device.
