If you got here, then it is safe to assume that you need to get a Chinese tablet into factory default settings. Maybe you want to give it away, sell it out, safely dispose it, or maybe you forgot your password or unblocking pattern. The main problem with a chinese tablet is that you most probably won’t find an official website for your “brand” … if you are lucky enough to find any brand or even model in your Chinese tablet. So you are probably on the wild with your Chinese tablet, left with no help whatsoever.
Thankfully enough, the last phrase is not entirely true, as different Android user forums around the globe dedicates an interesting amount of discussion space for the Chinese tablet breed. Scrapping and investigating such valuable user-generated information, we came up with a series of hard reset / factory defaulting methods that you may try in your Chinese tablet:
Hard Resetting your Chinese Tablet
You may invest some time trying the following hard reset methods on your Chinese tablet, as they seem to have been quite successful in most cases. Previously to start testing each one of the following buttons sequence, you need to get your Chinese tablet powered down. It won’t work if your Chinese tablet is merely on sleep mode: You need to shut it down completely. Try to press (and maintain pressed for some seconds) the following keys:
HOME and POWER buttons
UP VOLUME, DOWN VOLUME and POWER buttons
UP VOLUME and POWER buttons
DOWN VOLUME and POWER buttons
Hopefully one of these methods will manage to bring up into the screen the recovery menu, where you will be able to choose the WIPE DATA / FACTORY RESET option (probably by moving over the menu with the VOLUME UP / DOWN buttons). If you are lucky and can get into such menu, just execute the WIPE DATA / FACTORY RESET option on your Chinese Tablet!
So, you bought a new Google Nexus 7 Tablet. Immediately, you configured it for the somewhat novel and fun (yes, sure you are still thinking about it as fun) gesture and / or face recognition unlock pattern. For a time, you are quite happy about your Nexus 7. But, inevitably, maybe at work, at school, or even in your own home, someone grabbed your Nexus 7 and used up all its unlock pattern retries trying to get into Android. Now you got your Nexus 7 tablet locked, asking for you to enter your google account password in order to reset it’s retry counter and let you get in.
There is a tiny detail in this scenario, bumping the “perversity level” up a notch: Last time you used your Nexus 7, you turned off it’s WIFI connection in order to conserve energy. So, now, as Murphy law dictates, when you enter your google’s account passwords, your Nexus 7 tablet has no means of checking it up against Google’s website (and as it happens, your Nexus 7 Android OS seems to be dumb enough not to actually turn WIFI on).
The only effective solution, as most users under this situation writes about, is to RMA it into Google . They make you pay for a hard reset fee, and return your Nexus 7 to you after factory defaulting it.
Is there a hard reset method for the Nexus 7 Tablet ?
There are tons of forums over the web where they discuss this topic, believe it or not. The foolproof method is elusive enough to get you reading for hours. Several methods are listed, none are confirmed by third parties. We shall transcribe those ones that might be worth a try:
Leave it ON, asking for the unlock pattern: When battery starts to get low, your Nexus 7 will ask if you want to adjust your battery settings. If you confirm this, you will be taken into the settings menu, under the battery settings option, but then, the whole settings menu will be accessible. If such is the case, you may select BACKUP & RESET and perform a Hard reset Android on your Nexus 7!
You can always send it to Google and pay their hard reset service.
If you are a certified geek, fond of technical intrincancies, you may try a tutorial on how to unlock, root and Flash recover your Nexus 7, depicted on this link.
Please, if you find any of these methods useful at all, or discover any other that does work, post it as a comment down here so other users of the Nexus 7 tablet can benefit from it too!
