In this tutorial we will explain the two oficial techniques to reset Android on your HTC Droid DNA.
HTC Droid DNA is a device that came out to the market about two years ago, and runs Android 4.1 Jellybean. The two methods available to reset Android to factory settings are the usual ones: From the settings menu or using the hardware buttons. This last method is used if you don’t have access to your phone, maybe because you forgot your lock pattern, or for another reason.
Before going ahead with any of the two methods, please remember that when you reset Android to factory settings on any device, you will loose any installed applications as well as your personal data, including messages, contacts, email, events created in the calendar, etc..
