    My girlfriend has a Lenovo A 850 cell phone.

    By mistake she pressed 2 buttons at the same time (she thinks it was the power button + volume button)

    Now all the text is in Chinese - written on a black background with a blue top part of the screen.

    How can she make a "hard" reset of the phone?

    We cannot really find anything in the Internet about that subject, only one website that mentioned, that we have to

    - Turn off phone
    - Press "power-button" and "volume-up"

    at the same time.

    But still everything is in Chinese :mad:

    Thx in advance for your comments

    mikedt 你好

    Can you post an image of the Chinese text, and I should be able to tell you what it says. Probably some kind of diagnostic or recovery mode.

    You will have to find a way to root it. To get rid of the Chinese, you will have to get rid of that Chinese software and download a English Software such as Cymodogen. Good luck.
