So, you need to hard reset a Chinese Tablet ?
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!
