After the 4.1.1.4 update the process has changed slightly

You use the same Hard Reset steps, but after you press 0 it comes up with a "Cold Boot Config" screen and then prompts you to press OK to restart

Just tried doing mine (post update) and pressing the key combination as described does nothing - phone boots as normal!

I've tried this in a Qtek 8010, but I can't get it to work.
The only thing I get is the following.
The screen turnes white and then after 1-2 sek it shows

SPL 1.01.0078

Enyone have the same problem ?


Had major problems and needed to Hard Reset, Orange did not know how so i emailed HTC directly and below is their instructions for reset back to factory settings.

 1. Press and hold soft1 and soft2 keys.
 2. Press and hold power button for around 1 to 1.5 seconds. Release power button. Keep hold soft1 and soft2 keys.
 3. Later, screen shoould show instructions to ask user to press '0' key to reset to factory default.
 4. Press '0' within the timeout period, which is only several seconds only.
 5. If no instruction is shown on the screen, repeat steps 1 to 4.
     The timing is sensitive.

I know i am a GOD, but please do not worship me!!

Regards

sounds like you entered the boot loader.

Try again, timing is tricky

Depends what you are refering to, a hard reset returns the phone back to it's factory settings.

If you're using an Orange phone with Orange ROM you get the orange extras.

Why buy an Orange phone then complain about Orange branding?

You shouldn't be drinking your lunch box's Sunny Delight anywhere near your phone. Be more careful in the future :lol:

yes it will work. Timing is awkward. you could also use the clear storage option from the accessories folder (if your phone has it)

They should be there and mMode should definately be there.
If a standard application is removed by a hard reset then the app
can be found on the cd that came with the phone.

I need to do a Hard Reset for the first time after CoPilot crashed my phone once too often for it's liking.

Quick question. As most of my apps are installed on the SD card, how does the hard reset affect them, seeing as the card isn't wiped?

You'll need to reinstall the ones that make registry changes upon installation...

If you copy your start menu before you do the hard reset it makes life easier - otherwise none of your apps will show and you either have to re-install them all or at least recreate the start menu.

Reset went smoothly with no apparent disasters (that I can tell!). Now have to see if its made CoPilot behave itself :roll:
