Sony Ericsson Experia X1: How to Reset

We can't deny the fact that our cellphones mess up sometimes. That's the truth about the machines, we cannot let them take any medicine so that they'll be fine. However, there some ways on how to make them work again. One of these ways is what we call as reset.

Your phone will come back to its factory settings once you reset it. This is the last thing that you want to do anyway with your phone because this tweak will erase all the files and software that you added in your phone. In other words, it will clean up the whole phone. It is really advisable that you back up your important files like pictures, videos, messages, etc that you have saved in your phone. You can back up your files by using a memory card or any other external devices.

There are two ways on how you can reset your Sony Ericsson Experia X1 phone to its factory settings.

1. Soft Reset

Start>Settings>System>Clear Storage then enter the number 1234 and press Yes.

2. Hard Reset

While the phone is off -hold down the front left and right buttons on the X1 and insert your stylus into the soft reset hole all at the same time.
(Back of the phone)
(Stylus pen on the soft hole)
(Location of the Hole)

After following the procedure, a blue screen will appear which will ask you to press R to reset and delete all your existing files. Just press R. Then, you will then follow the on screen instructions like stylus calibrating. It's like having your Sony Ericsson Experia X1 the first time.

Sony experia z1 wipe data

On your phone, - go to settings.- Tap the "backup and restore" option. - Choose "factory data reset" - Up next press on "erase phone" and tap on "erase everything" in order to confirm
The Xperia Z1 is coming with an un-removable battery which means that the hard reset button is located somewhere it can be easily accessed.In that matter open the cover of the SD card slot.There should be located a small red button.
  1. That is the hard reset key.
  2. Now press and hold that small red button for about 3 or 5 seconds.
  3. Your Xperia Z1 will be factory reset automatically
