Oprn that folder and there you find the licence detail and fill in the licence detail and then turn off and turn on device and it will be done.

Mio P550 reboots but does not take any touchscreen inputs

I had the same and contacted MIO (use the phone number for your country,
). It was related to the shock the screen got and they graciously changed it for me (it was during the second year of the warranty). If the warranty has expired, you are probably looking to about a hundred bucks expense.

Mio P550 how do i do a hard reset

on/off switch in "off" position for at least 30 seconds, then turn it in "on " position, power on and "reset". You'll lose all your data and all the installed programs.
Alternative: using the screen options, go to "system info", and choose "hard reset".
Beware: pushing the joystick down while doing a reset will get you a boot menu with memory-formatting options. Choose "exit".
Otherwise look into xdadevelopers forum (Google it or go to, say,
Mio P550 / P350 ROM upload [Archive] - xda-developers
A good idea would be to backup your data in the first place- just a hint.
