Im sure there is a really simple way of doing this... I have messed up my X1 by installing a different version of Opera on it, now I want to back it up and do a hard reset

How do I go about this please? The HTC phones I have always had have had little holes to stick your stylus in, there does not appear to be that hole on the X1.

I dont even know how to soft reset this device!

Please can someone help me?

Thanks!

On further reading I have figured it..... There is a little hole under the battery cover, near where the stylus goes, its only small and if you blink you may miss it!

To hard reset, stick the stylus in this hole while pressing both the buttons (under the screen) down.

I hope someone finds that useful, this info was not in my manual at all!

HI all,

another way to do it without using the stylus is to switch off the phone,
hold down right and left button (under the screen)
while holding down switch on the phone
release the switch button while holding the two others
then a grey screen must appear saying to push "r" to hard reset or "x" to cancel
push "r" on the keyboard and you're done
