if you want clear all of the data off of the device and start fresh. Here’s how it’s done.
1. Turn the Droid off. If it won’t turn off, take the battery out then place it back in.
2. Open the keyboard
and press the X
key while pressing and holding Power
. The device will power on. Keep holding the buttons downuntil a yellow triangle appers.
3. Press the Camera
and Volume Up
buttons at the same time to get to the menu. (I had to press them several times)
4. Use the direction pad to the right of the keyboard to select the Format
Okay everyone here is a TRUE Challenge, how do you hard Reset a DROID PRO? I tried power on with the x button (keyboard always open as it is the Blackberry killer). HOWEVER:
I just got this phone from a friend who was on Verizon and switched to the iPhone4 (72 y/o attorney). He had me do a factory reset to clear his information, but phone was not ROOTED. Now when I start it up it goes to the activation screen, and I wanna Root it and Flash it. HELP A BROTHER OUT!
I have the Android SDK and when I link it to my PC I get the Moto(something) that runs, but I can't see the root directory. HELP ME (without Bricking) GET IN THIS PHONE'S HEAD!!!!
OKAY UPDATE: I went to YouTube, watched how to Hard Reset a Droid Pro R+M+Power, but that just lets you reset the phone, not get around Activation. So, more YouTube and I found if you tap (starting w/upper left) all four corners, like twice in a row, it bypasses the Activation screen. Then I downloaded z4 root 1.3.0 to my computer, USB it onto the Droid and VOILA I have a rooted Droid Pro, that will only connect to WiFi but cannot text or anything else since no service is connected.
NOW - Who knows how to Flash a Droid Pro to Cricket?
