How to reset an android

I'm assuming you mean a factory reset... the procedure varies between different devices. (backup anything that you want to have again after the reset, Titanium backup is a good app for that) The usual basic idea is to first get to the bootloader screen, which is usually done by turning the device off, and then holding down some combination of buttons (ex: power + vol down + home) until the bootloader screen appears. Google search bootloader for your device and you shouldn't have much trouble finding which buttons to press. Then its simply a matter of highlighting factory reset and selecting it (again, how to do this varies on different devices... some use vol buttons to move up/down and power to select).
If this doesn't help, a very useful resource for everything android is:
Welcome to xda developers community founded for developers by developers
and you can search for your specific device toward the top-right of the page.

My nexus 7 will not turn on and its only a week old

You may want to try and do a hard reset/reboot which will hopefully bring the Nexus 7 back to life.

  1. Press the power button and both volume keys for several seconds. The computer screen will eventually blink off. Continue to hold until you see the Android recovery logo and the large Start selection at the top of the screen.

  2. Move the volume keys up and down to see the menu selections. If you don't want to factory reset, you can try to Power down or to Restart bootloader from these selections. The power key will select the option.

Hope that helps!

How do I find the bootloader for my kyocera hydro phone. I am trying to get it out of the safe mode

you guys are idiots! it's a Kyocera not a Motorolla! The Kyocera Hydro's bootloader is Locked down, same with it's twin the Rise. So until someone figures out how to unlock the bootloader your stuck. have you tried reseting to facotry defaults?
If not here is your instructions and this might help you ^_^

First you remove the battery and reinstall it. With the phone turned off, Press and Hold the Volume Down and the HOME Touch Screen Button (The one theat looks like a little house), and without releasing those two press the power button long enough until you see the Kyocera Hydro logo, when this happens you may release the power button BUT NOT the Home and Volume keys. After a couple of seconds you will see a big android logo on your screen, NOW you can release both buttons. With the volume keys scroll down to WIPE/FACTORY RESET (This will erase everything on your phone except the contents on your MicroSD card). With your power button you select the option of WIPE nad after that it will prompt you with a lot of NO and one YES, scroll with the volume button then choose with the power button. After this you will return to the previous menu, so you just choose the REEBOT NOW with the power button, and voila MASTER RESET.

My HTC p3400i is not coming back to normal mode from flash/bootloader mode..??..Help....

First you can try to soft reset your device. After that, you can try a hard reset just by pressing and holding both the " -" keys right above the answer and end keys and pressing the power button . It will run the ghost image and recover the device ...

Note :

1) make sure your battery is more than 50 % charged .
2)you must do a power cycle in your device ( take out the battery , then press and hold the power button ) before you do a hard reset ...

If none of these helps, you can try to reflash your ROM (Since you're already in bootloader mode), simply plug your PDA to your computer with a USB cable, and download an upgrade ROM from here ( or just download your original ROM from HTC website and flash it using the instructions in the xda-developer forums. Hope this helps.

My razor v3 is stuck on the hello screen and do not turn off by pushing the power off button.

Sounds like the firmware has gotten stuck it was a common bug in some of the v3 firmware versions. Pull the battery, replace it and then power on while holding down the # and * keys it will go into bootloader mode. Once on the text bootloader screen you can use flashback (google for it) and flash a more current firmware which will fix the phone.

The V3 is deceiving because it has many different software versions. If you power the phone off, and then press and hold the * and # keys while pressing the power button, it should come up with a black screen with white letters telling you the bootloader version. I bet if you compare the two, the bootloader will be different.

There is the V3i, V3a, V3m, V3r, V3re, V3c etc.

I've heard of many of the new razors not being able to use MP3's as ring tones.

please rate as at least helpful as there is no FixYa solution for your problem.

Sorry for the bad news.

Try bootloader mode. Hold down the * and # key at the same time, then press the power key. (3 keys all together). You should get a bootloader menu. If you do, your phone can be saved. If not...
