Yoga Tablet 2 Android: How to perform a factory reset

Question

How do I factory reset the Yoga 2 Tablet (Android)?

Answer

If you are able to boot into Android, you can go to Settings->Backup & reset:

Select Factory data reset at the bottom:

Here you can check "Back up data before resetting", which will prompt you to back up to either your external sdcard (if you have one installed) or to Lenovo's SyncIt app (if you don't have an external sdcard card).  Otherwise, you check "Format internal SD card" to procede directly to the reset without backing up.  Make your selection, then tap the Reset tablet button to perform the reset (and optional backup if you selected the first option).

 

 

If you are unable to boot Android, you can still perform a factory reset from recovery.   Power off the tablet.  Then power the tablet back on while holding down both the Power and Volume Up buttons.  You will see the "Droidboot" menu:

At the "Droidboot" menu, use the Volume Up and Down buttons to highlight "Recovery" in yellow, then press the Power button to select it.  The tablet will reboot into recovery.  In recovery, you'll be prompted to select a language (English or Chinese), then you will reach the recovery menu:

Tap "wipe user data" here to perform the factory reset.  When it finishes, tap "reboot" to reboot into Android.

The factory reset are suitable for those who want to remove phoen data , but it can't be used to erase or wipe Android phone , because the data can be recovered on phone with recovery tool ,

Add in here, for these who want to erase data from Android by factory reset , the result is not very ideal ,after you done , the data still will be recovered

After you done , the phone data can be disapeared from phone, but not completely , the recovery tool still can restore them back on phone again , If you factory reset for format Android phone   , the factory reset isn't good way ,think of other ways
