How To Hard Reset Android Tablets?

For those who own a tablet running Android 3.x (a.k.a. Honeycomb) and for some reasons would like to hard reset the Android tablet during boot-up, here is an official video guide from Acer Support team.

The video reference is based on Acer Iconia Tab A500/501, but this well-known secret of performing press-and-hold “Volume Up” key when power on tablet to activate hard reset process should be applicable to other Android tablets running Honeycomb version.
NOTE: Make sure you’ve backup the data on the tablet prior to hard reset, as the process wipe off all user data, including installed application, while restoring the Android settings to factory default.

For better visibility, change the video streaming mode from 360p to 720p (HD) or 1080p (Full HD) in full-screen view:


1. Press and hold down both the volume+ key and power button.

2. When the tablet vibrates, release ONLY the power button (i.e. keep the volume+ button pressed and hold).

3. Immediately after release power button, slide the Screen Rotation Lock switch to the right then left.

4. Now, you should see the black screen showing “Erasing userdata…” then followed by “Erasing cache…”. Job done.
