Welcome to droidium.ru! Want to learn how to hard reset on HTC Wildfire S? Sometimes tablets and phones running the Android operating system fail. If you are the owner of an android gadget and decide to reset HTC Wildfire S to return your smartphone to the factory settings, then you have come to the right address. Often it is necessary to reset the settings due to an application error or if the operating system has been infected by a virus (for example, resetting the settings can help if a banner virus has entered the Android that blocks the screen). Perhaps a similar situation has occurred with your gadget or you just want to delete all the information from the internal memory of your phone.
Various factors can cause a system crash. This may be a general clutter of the system due to the frequent reinstallation of applications and the installation of a large number of programs and games on the internal memory and memory card. Or, which, in general, is quite rare without outside interference, this may be an internal OS error. In addition to problems with the operating system, HTC Wildfire S may not turn on at all. If the device slows down, freezes or is unstable, then a hard reset can also help. But what exactly reboots and what happens on the phone? Here it is worth explaining that there are two types of factory reset on tablets and smartphones for Android. You can reset HTC Wildfire S software and hardware. And these methods have differences.
On some firmware with a soft reset, you can select the desired removal options. In this case, all information is deleted from the memory card and internal memory of the operating system. When a hardware reset is made through a special menu of Android System Recovery, there are no such options, so SMS messages, phone contacts, applications and games can be saved. Nevertheless, before making a software or hardware reset of Android to the factory settings, we still recommend that you make a backup of important data for you as much as possible and save it. As a result of the reset, the following data will most likely disappear: installed applications and games, Google account and all data associated with other accounts, your personal data (contacts, SMS messages, notes on the calendar), data on the system and application settings.
