Angry How do you hard reset a samsung galaxy sprica/i5700 phone? (On BOOT UP)

I have a galaxy i5700 aka sprica and to make a long story short while letting someone check out the features pattern recognition was enabled and they couldn't remember the pattern so now I'm locked out of my phone.

It would be most appreciated if someone could please tell me how to hard reset (key combos etc) on boot up to reset factory settings as I can't get to the menu.

I am so not digging the fact I have nothing more right now then an expensive electronic brick.

THANK YOU

Not sure if this is any help but you can get to self test by [call]+[OK]+[hang up]. Battery out, in, then hold that combo until it comes up on screen, inside there's a "reset" option (19?), bit too precious to press it myself but worth a shot!

Good luck, A.

Just tried again and it went in fine, it starts to boot normally then drops into the test menu, it's a full 10 seconds of holding down the buttons after the samsung logo appears.

What s/w version are you on?

You shoul power off the phone, then hold down:
volume down + call + end call

(hold down volume down + call first, then finally hold end call as well)

Then when on the recovery screen hit 'home' to factory reset.

you can probably adb in, root it and force a factory reset that way. Can you get ADB working at all?

Default Adb

Adb? I'm a complete beginner and got the phone to test ideas once i one. :-) so in terms of forcing from a root login
I wouldnt know how to go about that unless it's as simple as running a dos shell and executing a command.

I mean it was a comedy of errors. I just got the thing just finished charging didn't even have a chance to sync it to a gmail account or change any setting except for pattern lock due the whole let me show you something cool syndrome Which resulted in this mess I'm in now.

So if there is a command I need to run all ears

Blackbolt, if you ever get your brick unbricked, download "AutoLock". This allows you to have a pattern lock set but not active. The key point is that this prevents setting a new pattern without giving the existing one, which is nice if you let others play around with your phone.


BTW, this should be moved from the Galaxy to the Galaxy-Lite subforum.

Thanks and I probably would have if I owned the phone before he did. He owns one and I just bought one and finished charging it

so it was him giving a demo while i was downstairs. And would have posted in galaxy lite if the forum had existed. I found this one googling. Joined and couldn't create the forum so I posted here.

Hmm you could try the little known 'safe mode' option in android.

- Power off the phone
- Power on, and immediatly hold down the menu button and keep it held
- The phone will boot with 'safe mode in the bottom left'

It should bypass the lock, so quickly go into the menu and deactivate it. If the phone locks by itself you'll have to start again.

Cool Problem solved

I took the piece o shit back. Basically I figured out pattern lock Is even more buggy on the spica aka galaxy i5700 and any company that's dumb enough to release a product before their own software can even read it should be slapped. Pc studio is garbage it identified the spica as another phone and couldn't connect to it. Basically the vendor said the update for te spica is out yet.

Though trying to get into the guts of the spica would have been interesting I need a phone now and have better things to do with my time so I just said give me a new one. Had this happened a few months after I
got the phone sure but not 4 hours later.

Thanks for all the help nonetheless. Now it's time develop an app!'n
:-)

it happened to me once on i7500. when you fracked up the pass lots of time it just asks for your google username and pass. You enter it and it unlocks the pattern lock.

Ouch! Is it too late to chime in with flashing the firmware? Is the phone already in the postbox? Say it's not so! I think the Spica is a great mobile and it'd be a shame to see you put off it for good

Still don't know how to hard/factory reset.

When I go to self test by pressing [call]+[OK]+[end call] at startup and then choose 19. reset, it just starts up again, but doesn't seem to be reset.

And [volume down]+[call]+[end call] doesn't work on the Spica, just keeps restarting.

I can't put in my Google Account username and password, so can't access the Android Market or any of the other Google stuff. The only info I find on this is to do a hard reset and then fill in the Google sync info before doing anything else.

Out of interest, is there any way of differentiating between "my mate was fooling around with my phone and changed the lock" and "I've just stolen this phone and can't use it"?

Is this something we should be concerned about on this forum, or are we just generally trusting sorts? Maybe I'm just a cynic, but my gut reaction to locked phones is "ring the provider / supplier."

No offence to the previous posters and all that, I'm sure you're all pillars of your respective societies, I'm just generalising here.

theres no burden of proof so what we gonna do? be totally unhelpful cos we cannot give benefit of doubt that there is a legitimate reason for this question?

this kind of thing can happen alot especially with the ease of enabling it and annoying friends that have to mess about with stuff they know can go wrong

No, I know. I just know how hacked off I'd be if I had my phone pinched. Just thinking out loud really. Referring back to the supplier means that they'd do some form of identity checking, hopefully. I take your point though.

1:e one is just some soft reset and does not work,
2:e one is from the manual and is a printing error, they have now withdraw this manual (atleast from swedish samsung site). And you can now only hard reset phone when loged in to the phone. If you lock it u have to send it in to samsung that will charge you 840 kr (80 euro) for unlocking it. And it will take 10 working days to get it back. I have talked to about 20 ppl at samsung support and all of them say that stupid people should pay for their mistakes. I asked if they could atleast state in the manual further on that you will need your android store account for this but they didnt think it was an god idea since its not their problem. The OS (Android) is a 3:e part program and they are not responsible what you do with it.

Then some from Sweden should get their teeth kicked in. There's a defect in the phone this isn't happening on the regular galaxy ts happening on this model only but they don't tell you that. You should get that asshats name who said dumb people should pay foe their mistakes. Samsung didn't even have the drivers on the site for the phone to be recognized by their own software.

If you set up your phone, lock it and can't unlock it by using a developer kit or reset the phone is defective. I couldn't even access the phone with an sdk because the phone couldn't be recognized properly by the pc to be accessed.

This phone is buggy and if customer service tells you it's your fault get that clowns name and report him.

Default Sales people are idiots

Dude. If they are selling you a phone packaged with this os they can't break the phone up into separate parts and say they aren't responsible. That's ridiculous. That's like a car dealer saying he can't accept you defective car back because it's only the seats that fall off of the rails when you are driving.

One of them was Country manager for Samsung Support/Reclamation. And he stated thats its my fault and that samsung are not responsible for any 3:e part software or os in their products. And then he told me to contact Google if im not happy with their choise of paying 80 euro for unlock. He then told med just go to gmail support forum and check around for a solution to retrive account without any information or alternative email adress to fill their self support forms. I asked him what inforamtion google will need, IME nr etc but he told me that is my problem to find out with google.

Anyone who Answers like is hoping you will believe it so they don't have to acknowledge then rising wave of calls. They sold a phone with an os thy choose
to put on their phone. And they gave you a crappy manual.

Tell him you are going to the news and tech forums and will leave his contact info of someone doesn't give you a new phone free of charge. I took mine back and had it replaced. I spent 3 days trying to figure out where I went wrong.

If they make a profit off of the android cuz that's why peoplenare buying it the can shoulder the responsibility too.

PRESS --> VOLUME DOWN + CALL + DOWN ( below OK ) + POWER ON/OFF

after this your phone will show display an image of a cell phone and caution symbol PRESS MENU or HOME button at that time ...
This does not work, even samsung supports says that a hard reset is not possible on spica, we have to wait for working drivers for sdk so we can rest phone by connecting to pc.

This is so stupid - a phone that cannot be reset without a computer.

Hi, my wife works for T-Mobile. this should resolve it without hard resetting the phone. (with samsung galaxy)
get another phone and call the locked Galaxy accept the call, During the call, press the back button (above the on/off button not home key) this will go onto your main screen. press key menu key (left side above call key) there you can go into the security settings and take off the lock pattern and hang up the call and then it is now working. to use the market again you will have to put in your password for goggle account if it fails call 150 (if with T-Mob)

friend but i guess we need to know the pattern lock first before changing it or taking it off!

if you want to hard reset your mobile phone, just visit hard reset your samsung galaxy
and if you want to reset pattern lock, visit reset pattern lock of your galaxy
first decide what you have to do, because both are separate procedures and processes!

cheers

Hey man! I am going crazy with the same issue, my phone got locked out by that piece of malware screen lock cause my cousin tried to open it up without asking me first. Guys, you dont have to reset your phone and start to scratch again. But ofcourse you have to know the screen lock pattern. Entering google account wont work, i tried it for 100 times with grps settings.
Your idea is amazing dude. I've never thought it will work but IT DID!! Thanks man!
