Do you need to hard reset the HTC HD2 so it’s back to its factory settings ? Here’s the step by step instructions to get that done: ( via )

Plz note that all custom files, pictures, video , music, everything will be DELETED when you Hard Reset the device

Some Essential steps before you Begin :
Charge the device prior to performing the hard reset.
Backup any valuable files or information.

  • Turn the phone off
  • Press and hold both the volume up and volume down buttons
  • Press and release the Power / Hang-up button
  • The device will turn on – release the volume buttons when you see the tri-color screen. It flashes for a second or two
  • The device will then display a prompt asking you to confirm the reset of the device
  • Press the volume up button to continue with the hard reset, or press any other button to cancel.

If the device still boots up, you can perform the same reset using the software on the device. Just tap Start / Settings / Security / Factory Reset and then enter the 4 digit security code – 1234, and the hard reset will begin.

    I would ask you for help,
    In fact I went to put Android up and I followed the instructions on the xda-developers, I formatted the card to FAT32, then I have a PC installed HSPL 2:08, then I started MAGLDR113_DAF (RomUpdateUtility) and after the installation is finished, reset the mob, however HTC logo comes up and nothing happens. Even not in the lower left corner, which is a version of that too. I tried the volume up + down hard reset to do, but again the same (for 1 sec is over, so I guess that does not make any restore)! PLEASE HELP, can not anything with him now! Thank you in advance for your help!

    i have been trying to reset my phone using the volume buttons and it said after like a quick second that it was reset and when it came on the old google account was still on it. i have android on this phone so when i go to settings there is no security tab. so instead i go to settings-privacy-factory data reset-reset phone-erase everything and the phone just reboots and goes back to the original screen with the old google account that i do not have passwords for
