To format Galaxy gts 5360 using Hard Reset?

I want to format it as I have forgotten lock key ..So is there any chance to backup my file or reset my lock code using a Gmail account mail


Try inputting the wrong lock key and see if the phone prompts you to enter your Google account. If that doesn't work, you will need to purchase an app to bypass the lock screen. Log in to your Google account, the same one you used on the phone, on the play store website and purchase the screen lock bypass app here:

If your phone has mobile data or WiFi turned on, the app will be installed to it over the air once you complete the transaction on the play store website. Follow the instructions to unlock your phone and there will be no need to backup your data.

After I reformat my Galaxy y, the logo is still there?

It is not working to my phone. my phone is hanging.


Most software problems on Android mobile devices can be effectively fixed by simply performing a master reset or Hard Reset. If in case the phone is still not properly operational, re-installing the phone's original firmware (stock ROM) through a method known as "stock ROM reflashing" mostly fixes these issues. In regards to your query, you already reformatted or performed a master reset on your Galaxy y phone but the logo is still not fixed probably because your phone's firmware is corrupted making your phone unable to boot normally. The proper fix to this issue is for you to re-flash your phone's firmware by simply following the step-by-step guide in the VisiHow article below. To successfully re-flash your phone's firmware, you need first to download ODIN and download your phone's correct firmware (which was provided in the link ). After downloading the required files, kindly follow the steps provided to properly re-flash your phone's firmware. After successfully re-flashing your phone's firmware, your phone will now properly get past the logo and boots or starts normally.
