    Apply a Factory Reset - (Step by Step with Images)

    Here is a step by step visual description of how to apply a factory reset.

    This will reset the device if you are unable to boot it up or want to wipe out all of the applications you have loaded or changes you have made.

    SD card data is NOT affected with this process.

    Note: If you receive a "No recovery image is found, try recover from SD" message when following these steps, it may be possible to manually update the device to obtain a recovery image. How to manually update SYNET7LP/SYTABEX7 to Android 2.2 "Froyo" Caution: If your tablet was shipped with Android 2.2, DO NOT UPDATE!

    STEP 1 - Hold the device with a finger on the screen and fingers on the back "MENU" and "On/Off" keys.

    STEP 2 - Press and hold all three until device displays "infoTMIC" image

    When the
    "Press the required keys if you want to apply a factory reset.
    System will reboot normally in X seconds..."

    is displayed ...

    STEP 3 - Release "MENU" and "On/Off" keys and immediately press the "MENU" key

    The device will then display the following screens in sequence without the need for any further key pressing.

    "Getting recovery image"

    "Extracting recovery data"

    "Burning file sysyem ..." (Progress bar displayed)

    "Recovery OK!
    System will boot in XX seconds ..."

    Congratulations! Now you too can brick your device and bring it back to life over and over again.
    Thanks to all who have provided the information needed to present this process.

    Nice pics, thanks on behalf of everyone that has one of these. I found it easier to press the menu and power buttons with my index/middle fingers and use my thumb to press on the screen. This one-handed method leads to less hand cramping trying to get the right grip on it!

    What can I do when the tablet displayed the following and I don't have any files on the SD card? I have the express model by the way.

    "No recovery image is found, try recover from SD?

    You could download one of the first identified update files system.bin and put the 52mb file on a blank FAT32 formatted micoSD card and attempt to initiate a factory reset.

    Disclaimer: You could brick your device. Also, not sure what combination of key/screen pressing would force to look at SD card.

    If you try, let us know what combination worked and if it resulted in allowing you to do a factory reset.
