Performing a Hard Reset on your device is easy. The difference between a Factory Reset and a Hard Reset is:

Factory Reset
The 'lighter' of the two reset options. It can be done either in settings or via recovery menu. It wipes all user data and firmware settings, but leaves the contents of your SDcard intact.

Hard Reset
Restores a smartphone to its basic factory settings, which erases all applications that were installed by the user as well as all user data. Hard Reset wipes everything including the contents of your SD Card. Whatever firmware you last flashed will be the firmware you get back, but everything else will be wiped.

Clear? Ok, let's proceed with the Hard Reset for the Samsung Galaxy Note.

  • Turn your phone off.
  • With the phone off, press and hold the Volume Up key and the Home key, then press and hold the Power key.
  • You'll see the Android recovery screen.
  • Scroll to Wipe Data/Factory Reset using the Volume Up or Down keys. Select with the power key.
  • Scroll down to Yes, Delete User Data and select it.
  • Back on the first screen, scroll down to Wipe Cache Partition and select it.
  • Your factory reset is now complete. Go to Reboot System Now to restart the phone.

Let us know if you have any questions or problems.

I have a Samsung GT-N8010 which is jailbroken as someone suggested it was a good idea. Problem is I can no longer update it and I need to unjailbreak. Any ideas?

Hi @Derek, it depends on what version of Android you have running, but you should check out an app on the Play Store called Triangle Away by Chainfire. It will get your flash counter back to zero (in case you plan to sell your Note or return it for service). Then, there's a million different apps and procedures on YouTube to assist you with unrooting your device. Then you can flash stock Samsung firmware on it again and be good as new!

Correct, my bad. I'm thinking about ''stock firmware with root'' files from the likes of XDA. But yes, if you want to remove root at the same time as going stock, flashing stock firmware will also flash recovery and unroot your Note.
