Tutorial to hard reset and unlock Android on HTC One
Have Android on your HTC One been starting to missbehave and act up? Maybe it constantly needs to restart, or pauses itself in the middle of something important, or any other problem that can be caused by a overload of information on the device. Or maybe you just forgot the lock pattern on your HTC One and are now unable to use it anymore.
In any of these situations you’ll need to perform a hard reset on your device.
Please bear in mind that a hard reset on your device will eliminate all the information you have added to it, like installed apps, contacts, etc. It would be wise to do a backup of all your information before starting the steps for performing a hard reset on your HTC One. To do a backup you can use any of the many applications available in Google Play.
