For the first method, place this file onto the microSD card of your smartphone. In the powered-down state, press and hold volume-up and power buttons until you see a green robot. Press the volume-up button to enter the recovery menu. Select "apply...", "choose...", or "install..." from the given options with the volume buttons. Once you highlight the option, press the power button. Now, all you need is to reboot your device by selecting "reboot system now" in the same manner.

If that did not work and you cannot open your device, then turn off the device again. Press and hold volume-up and power buttons until you see a green robot. Press the volume-up button to enter the recovery menu. Select "wipe data/factory reset" and confirm it with "Yes -- delete all user data" (user the same volume buttons to select items and the power button to confirm it). All of the data will be erased from your smartphone. Then, reboot your device.
