    So... I can't access my home screen due to a theming screw-up. I'd like to just restore the phone to its factory settings by hard reseting (as I have no access to my phone). All of the information on the internet tells me to hold the Volume Down button while pressing (& releasing) the Power button. Through my many attempts, I've deduced this just doesn't work. It just powers up as usual.

    Any ideas?

    This procedure worked for me when I had to do a hard reset . . . hope this helps.

    Turn phone completely off. Press & hold the following 3 buttons at same time:

    volume down - - - green phone - - - red phone - - - - all at same time - hold until you see a reboot option. Scroll down & select "wipe data factory reset".

    Code 588091

    To confirm press volume UP. Once it says complete it will take you back to screen - select "reboot"

    To confirm press volume DOWN. It will restart - then go to gmail, sign in and everything will be there.

    Not really a noob here and I cant get these instructions to work at all!!!

    I have 2 of them and none of the instructions work!

    edit: I dont understand how but that finally worked on both, after numerous attempts.

    that "Code" you posted is your MSL (master subsidy lock) and you probably shouldn't publish that online, becuase with that someone could clone your phone. Also, that code is of no use to anyone, except for you as it is unique to your device.
