| | Hard Reset & Model Information
Formally Known As
In Clarification of non-HTC device:- O2 Xda Atom / O2 Xda Atom Pure / O2 Xda Atom Life / O2 Xda Atom Exec / Hewlett-Packard iPAQ rw6828
A hard reset turns the battery off, clears memory, deletes all data (such as owner information under Setup Wizard and AutoConfigurator) and restores the Xda Atom Life to its default settings. The action will keep all the preinstalled programs that were in the phone when your Xda Atom Life was first delivered to you. It is therefore extremely important to back up data to a storage card or your computer on a regular basis in case a hard reset has to be performed.
To perform a hard reset:
1. Make sure that you have backed up all your data in a Mini SD card or on your PC before performing a hard reset.
2. Press and hold the power button, and then use the stylus to press the soft reset button at the same time
