HTC Magic with OpenEclair: Factory reset does not function!
today I obtained an old HTC Magic phone with OpenEclair (Android 2.1-update) mounted on it. However there is still the Gmail account of an additional individual related to it, which I would certainly such as to remove. Nonetheless, for doing so, you require to do a "factory reset" on the phone. So did I, the phone restarted, yet the information (applications, setups and also the account) was still there. Absolutely nothing had actually been gotten rid of!
Any person has a suggestion what could be the trouble and also just how to deal with that?
Thx a whole lot!
You really did not do a factory reset after that, yet possibly a soft reset. To execute a factory reset from the Home screen press Menu > Settings > SD card & phone storage space > Factory information reset > Reset phone > Erase every little thing. That need to take you back to fresh start. Reply back with a comment otherwise.
Update : Boot right into the bootloader : Completely power off the deivce. After that hold back the Back switch and also press the Power/End Call switch to reactivate your phone. Maintain the back switch held back till the bootloader food selection shows up. From below do you have an alternative to clean, reset, or factory reset (or something along those lines )? If so attempt it.
