    Question How do I hard reset a new 8800?

    Advertisement



    Hey - i'm having all sorts of minors problems with my 8800, not correctly syncing with Outlook etc. I want to try a hard reset, but can not find a reset button, nor any directions in the manual.

    Anyone got any ideas on how to reset?

    Cheers,
    JK

    Thanks SuzzyP - but doesn't that just perform a soft reset? I want a full on reset - so it effectively becomes "as new" and loads up fresh, deleting everything it used to know. Is that possible?

    Nope. A device wipe is what you're looking for. Hard resets only wipe devices on the PalmOS platform.

    A soft reset is performed by hitting Alt-Esc-Del.

    A hard reset is performed by hitting Alt-Esc-Del twice or by pulling the battery.

    Neither reset will wipe the BB.

    Another way to reset is to pres ALT - NUM - DEL. Got to love the three finger salute!

    We use Alt + Cap + Del.
    It doesn't record video. Get over it.

    I believe neither if the three finger salutes work on the 8800. I know they don't work on the pearl. Only way is with a battery pull.

    Joe - the ALT+CAP+DEL works on the 8800! It's one of the first tricks I learned, and it's worked on every Berry i've ever had [and i've had several!]

    ALT + Cap + Del does nothing on Pearl

    Soft reset just resets the device so it will work faster.

    Wipe (which is what the original poster wanted) removes all custom programs, upgraded OS's, themes, wallpapers, backgrounds, etc. so that the device is just like it was when you first received it.
