If this is the case, then you will need to power down the smartphone and follow the "Factory Reset Android Devices Not Booting Normally" section of the tutorial. If you know the device name and model, then we might find out how to reset it exactly in the powered-down state. The way to reset the smartphone is a button combination, a computer device-specific program, or a flashing program with a ROM (firmware) file.

I want to factory reset my Android TV box MXQ because it is stuck on the rotating coloured MBOX Icons?

I can get to the reset factory page using the toothpick method but it does not allow to select any of the options. It does not allow me to select an option when I press the volume buttons. I have tried: Not much so far because I cannot select an option to factory reset the box. I think it was caused by: While using the box I got a critical error message and I had to Reboot.
