LG Optimus Black

The LG Optimus Black features the Android 2.2 ( Froyo) / v2.3.4 (Gingerbread ) operating system and is internally powered by a 1GHz Cortex- A8 CPU, with 512 MB ​​of available RAM.

The Android operating system on the LG Optimus Black can be even upgraded to v4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).

Also, the LG Optimus Black includes a large screen of 4.0 ” with Corning Gorilla Glass protection, Optimus UI 2.0, multi-touch support, accelerometer sensor, gyroscope, and proximity sensor compass.

All these aspects makes the LG Optimus Black a keeper even at the day of this writing. Thus, if you got one, and it has slowed down, gives errors to you, or you are left blocked by the pattern block password, this reset Android procedure may solve your issues..

When performing an Android reset procedure, all user applications and  data are erased. Therefore -given the chance and if your LG Optimus Black is still working- it is recommended to backup your important data before continuing with this tutorial.

Reset Android on LG Optimus Black with keys

You can reset  Android on the LG Optimus Black even if you are left out of it’s Android OS, by using a button sequence. But note: There are problems with these methods:

Many LG user forums say that this phone does not accept a foolproof Hard reset method by using just the phone’s keys (as we used to do on other phones).

However, other users argue that they have managed to do a hard reset on their LG Optimus Black, following different key sequences.

Here we leave to you the most likely button sequences, for you to try:

FIRST METHOD TO RESET Android on your LG OPTIMUS BLACK

  1. When the phone is off , hold down the Power button HOME (home) + left hand
  2. While doing so the previous step, also press the POWER button ( on) for several seconds.
  3. The handset will power a factory reset is performed.
  4. When the LG logo is shown on the display , continue to hold the key for about two seconds and then release them all at once , before the LG logo disappears .

  1. With the phone turned off, press VOLUME DOWN and POWER
  2. While the VOLUME DOWN button is pressed, release the POWER
  3. Wait until the menu appears and choose RECOVERY data / reset option Wipe

If neither of these methods works for you, and you have no access because your phone is locked with the pattern lock, the only alternative is to take your unfortunate LG Optimus Black to an official repair center because a special cable and software are required to achieve a hard reset on your phone.

OPTION 2 . Reset Android on LG Optimus Blac by Android’s menu

If you still have working access into your phone, then this method is for you.

You just have to go to the menu Settings> Backup and Restore > Factory data reset > Reset phone. ( If you want to erase all data on the SD card of your phone, select the Erase SD card checkbox )

The LG Optimus Black phone will turn on and perform factory reset immediately.
