Hard Reset HTC Touch Dual

This is completely non-obvious.

  1. remove the battery cover.
  2. observe that by the USB port, there is a small indentation. This is the reset switch access.
  3. Keep the slider closed.
  4. power the phone on.
  5. press the “talk” and “end” buttons; while holding them down, use the stylus to probe into the reset switch hole at a 45 degree angle to the major axis of the phone.
  6. when you get to the “press enter to reset the phone” page, press the center dpad.

What isn’t obvious? the angle at which you frob the reset switch and that the center dpad is not the enter key when the slider is open.

  4. Cheers for posting this, a colleague of mine suggested applying a piece of software to speed up the phone which made a right mess of it, not his fault..spent ages with soft resets which were useless..thanks again!
