Hard Reset your O+ 8.3 Android and remove password, pattern lock and gmail account

Another tutorial for O+ brand, and this time it is for the O+ 8.3. I also have the stock rom for this phone. So just check out my blog post is you need to reflash your phone.

Hard resetting / factory resetting your phone will solve the following issues:

1. If you forgot your pattern lock
2. If you forgot your gmail account
3. If you forgot your password
4. Apps that automatically force closing
5. Stuck in O+ Logo (sometimes does not work if the firmware is totally damage)

NOTE: Performing hard reset will erase your data.

To hard reset:

1. Turn off your phone.
2. Press and Hold first the POWER Button and then immediately Press and HOLD VOLUME UP until you see the Android Robot.
3. Press the HOME Button to activate Android System Recovery
4. Select wipe / factory reset, press Volume rocker to navigate and press the Option Capacitive Button or Sensor(Third Capacitive Button or Sensor) to confirm your selection
5. Reboot your phone.

If  performing hard reset did not succeed, you need to wipe the cache first in the android system recovery before performing wipe / factory reset.

I hope this tutorial helps you.. If you have any question just drop a comment.
