Factory data reset will bring your phone back to original stage (like newly bought). However, it does not work so well on my mom’s Xiaomi Redmi 1S. Yup, it does not delete certain applications that I installed and some user data still there. Not sure what went wrong? But I suspect that it is either v23 ROM or v36 OTA issue (Malaysia stock ROM is v23 and I updated to latest version v36 through OTA method). Anyway, that’s was the very first bug that I saw on Malaysia Redmi 1S. Luckily, I know how to do a clean installation. Else Xiaomi service center is the place that I am going to visit.
How to factory data reset Redmi 1S?
- Bring up Settings.
- Select General settings tab.
- Go to Backup & reset.
- Select Factory data reset ~ Erase all data on phone.
- Check both Erase apps and Erase Stored content.
- Finally, click on Reset phone.
Your smartphone should like a new one if everything goes smoothly (no bug in your current ROM). That’s it.
Note – No factory data reset bug in clean installation v36 Malaysia ROM. Yeah!
