    Hard Reset / Factory Reset Huawei Ascend 2

    This thread will explain how to do a Hard Reset / Factory Reset on a Huawei Ascend 2.

    First, turn off the phone.

    Then, press VOLUME UP + POWER. (Thanks 154-4bdu114h!)

    If you've tried to put a custom ROM on your phone and were unsuccessful at doing so (and therefore can't do what is above) click here.

    Actually, all you have to do is power down the phone then hold VOLUME UP + POWER for 10 seconds, then let go.

    Thank you for the correction!

    I was reading about this on another site and didn't give that a thought.

    Hello,

    I rooted my Ascend 2. Put a custom ROM from a paid ROM Manager. However, I can't get into the recovery in any method that I have tried. The vol up + power didn't work. Restarting into recovery via ROM Manager doesn't work. Applying an online update and restart doesn't work. It just gets stuck on the Huawei white screen. I am baffled. Any ideas? I really just want to wipe the phone clean and put a whole new OS on it. I can't even do that or go back to the stock ROM. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    What is also strange, on reboots my phone will stay stuck on the white Huawei screen if the power is plugged in, but removal of batter and reboot with just the battery works fine. Wondering if this is a manufacture error.

    Regards,

    Ever

    Actually, I found out how to fix it. Everybody is saying to push the Vol up + power. This info is wrong. What you need to do is push the vol - and vol + in at the same time and power. This brought my phone into recovery and froze with the lights at the bottom of the phone flashing. So I unzipped the Stock ROM update and put the dload folder in the root of the SD card and restarted the phone again with vol - and vol + in at the same time and power and my phone was restored back to the stock ROM.

    go to the folder where its extracted and execute "RUNME.bat"

    read and follow the instructions on the screen!

    Code:

    Factory Reset

    Basically go to this wiki:


    Flash your M865 Ascend II back to Stock - PlayfulDroidz Wiki




    Download the file for stock Gingerbread.

    What do they mean by root? Many don't know what root is. Basically if you have files already on your SD card, be sure that the dload file it asks you to put on there is not inside of any of those files. This dload file needs to be outside with the rest of the other files. This is the root directory. I use an empty SD card.

    Extract the zip file using winwar. Click into the file it generates and right click and copy the dload file. Go back to the root of your SD card and paste.

    Put SD card back into your phone. Power it on by pressing both the volume + and volume - with the power button pressed. This will restore to stock and wipe all data.

    What are you trying to do are you trying to flash back to stock 2.3.3 or just do a factory reset
