Perform a Factory Data Reset (Device Powered On) - Motorola DROID X2 MB870

A factory data (hard) reset may help with a blank or frozen screen, apps crashing or freezing, keypad/touchscreen problems, can't hear, device making noises, can't make or receive calls, and device won't sync. Our Troubleshooting Assistant can help you with other device issues if you aren't currently using the tool.

 

Warning Perform a factory data reset only if absolutely necessary as it removes all data including:

  • GoogleTM account
  • System and app data
  • App settings
  • Downloaded apps
  • Music, pictures and videos (It is recommended to backup this data).

Note An alternate reset method is available if the device is unresponsive or won't power on.

  1. From a home screen, tap App menu (located in the lower right).
  2. Tap Settings.
    Note If the app icon is missing, tap App menu filter (located at the top) then tap All apps.
  3. Tap Privacy.
    Note To determine if an issue is caused by a third-party app, uncheck Automatic Restore.
  4. Tap Factory Data Reset.
  5. To clear all personal data, ensure Erase internal storage (media area) is enabled then tap Reset Phone.
    Note Enabled when a check mark is present.
    Note If presented, enter the current passcode or draw the unlock pattern.
  6. Tap Erase Everything.
    Note To setup the device after the reset has completed, refer to Initial Activation and Setup.
