    The external reset does not work. Here is how to reset..Go to your Settings, then go to Backup and Reset. Under Personal Data click on Factory data reset.

    I've been locked out of my Irulu Xpro X1 for months, and tried absolutely everything possible to factory reset it. Finally ran across this info and it worked like a charm! May possibly work for the AK304 as well, but be advised it is a factory reset so you will lose your data.

    Since the tablet is running, you should find an entry in the settings that will reset the tablet for you. It should be similar to the procedure in post #54 of this thread.

    Power button and up volume just like this:

    Make sure the tablet is OFF.
    Press and hold the Volume Up and Power buttons at the same time.
    When the Android starts to flash, release the buttons.
    Then try to press different hardware buttons until you are given a list of options.

    Except in my case, the tablet locked on startup and I couldn't turn if off. So I did the reset with the tablet ON. It still worked.
    So don't panic. I did the reset and re-established everything including logging onto my network while watching tv. And I never had to do this before. Baptism by fire. I will add that Google had many of my settings on the cloud, so things went rather smoothly.

    Is this method secure? I heard the data could be recovered with this method.
