Worked for me! Thanks..
Your Welcome, b33
my phone is super slow. i can get all the way to the driod guy laying on his side, but pushing the up/down at the same time does nothing at that point. Any suggestions?
Power down phone
Hold volume up/down & power simultaneously until you see the Boot Mode Selection Menu
Use volume down to navigate to 'Recovery', use volume up to select
Should see screen with triangle and exclamation point next to an Android
Press volume up/down simultaneously to go into system recovery *
Use volume rocker to navigate to 'wipe cache' and use power button to select
Once finished, use volume rocker to navigate to 'reboot system now' and use power button to select
* if doesn't work:
press and hold the volume down and wait for a second or two, then press and hold the volume up and the volume down buttons for 5-6 seconds and then release
I have tried that...it just freezes on the recovery screen picture of the andriod on its side. No matter how long I hold the volume button, nothing happens.
