That instruction set is referring to the navigation method while in the recovery mode menu of most Android phone and tablets. In the menu, the touch screen does not function. You use the volume up and down keys to select/highlight the menu items and then use the power button to confirm.

NOTE: Following this guide will erase all settings and data on your device.

There are many generic instructions for booting your device into Recovery Mode. Different devices have their own set of buttons for booting into Recovery Mode. Try the following key combinations.

NOTE: Your device has to be powered off first. If you end up on your device brand logo upon pressing the key combination, continue pressing the power button.

- Power + Home + Volume Up - Power + Home + Volume Down - Power + Volume Down + Volume Up - Power + Volume Down + Camera - Power + Volume Up + Camera - Power + Home + Camera - Power + Reset - Power + Reset + Home

Upon seeing the Android Bot, follow these steps:

1. If your device provides multiple options to power off, start the device and so on, use the Volume Up and Down buttons to toggle to Recovery Mode, then press the Power button to confirm. Otherwise you should land straight in Recovery Mode.

2. Use the Volume Down button to toggle to Wipe Data / Factory Reset. Press the Power button to confirm.

3. Use the Volume Down button to toggle to Yes ---- Wipe all data. I do not know why Android gives too many No options. Press the Power button to confirm Yes and your device will start formatting.

4. After that, use Volume Down button to scroll to Reboot Device. And you are done. All's left to do is to wait for your device to start as usual. This might take up to 15 minutes, as if your device was just taken out of the box.

By Joules, when it asks for your email (yes Gmail), it's a great chance if you have one. If you have an Gmail account registered to your device, follow these steps.

1. Tap on the Forgot Password? link.

2. Tap on I Don't Know My Google Play ID.

3. Sign into Google.

4. Create a new pattern password.

Done!
