How to hard reset C6-01?

As subject says, the question is: how can I perform a hard reset on C6-01?

Not the one with 7370 code, the phisical one.

 

By the way, it's a very nice and good device! :smileyhappy:

Re: How to hard reset C6-01?

I guess the question is, why would you want to? You shouldn't need to. I know it was often recommended for older symbian devices, but the new ones have a lot more ram and memory and don't need a deep clean.

 

the board is littered with people who have hard reset  N8 and C7 and now regret it.

Re: How to hard reset C6-01?

The reset issue for the Symbian^3 devices are slightly different. The C6 uses a different version and should not have the same issue.

 

Anyway, the full reset is not something you should contemplate lightly and should only be done if necessary as it wipes all your data. So, always remember to backup your phone before performing resets as your data may be lost.

The "3 finger deep reset". With the phone powered off, depress and hold these three keys simultaneously "*" "3" "green phone" and then power on phone using the on/off button whilst keeping the three keys depressed until you hear start-up tone.

Re: How to hard reset C6-01?

Don't worry, of course I don't take it lightly. I know very well what it is and its effects, I was just wondering how to do it on this device. :smileywink:

The fact is that C6-01 doesn't have the keypad, and the red button is used to power on, so it's not holdable before turning on the device.

Anyway, after a deep reset (7370) all the things were at their place (Maps, Social and company), maybe because it is the last Symbian^3 and has a more stable firmware.

But the question still remains...

this will not work as there is no physical keys.

this is the hard reset code
(pressing volume down + camera key + menu key and pressing power button)

use at last resort as you will loose some apps

If  i have helped at all a click on the white star below would be nice thanks.

Re: How to hard reset C6-01?

dont use this at random since it will remove some apps like Ovi store which may not be recoverable. Nokia recommends on its site not to perform 3 finger method unless it is absolutely necessary. Instead it recommends using *#7370# method.
