    Dear all, I'd like to
    factory reset my tablet MID X5A because I want to sell it.
    I've tried to do this using the "Factory Reset" in "Settings-->Privacy"
    but it doesn't work.

    I've read that maybe the only solution is to reflash the rom,
    but i couldn't understand how.
    So what is the best way to reset all my data and sell the tablet
    without having to worry?
    Cheers, 'Luca

    X5a / X6d Factory Reset [HR][/HR]The later versions of the X5a / X6d have a mechanical method of entering factory reset if you are unable to switch the device on and go through the android menu system.

    Firstly, start with the device turned off.

    Press and hold the Power button & Home key until you see the android logo with an inset exclamation mark.

    Let go of the buttons and press the Menu button at which point you will have some options on screen.

    Select factory reset and, once done, your tablet will turn off

    Switch on again and allow to boot

    Hope that helps

    It worked for me
