How to restart Android?

Owners of devices on the Android operating system sometimes experience the following problems: the system crashes, the device does not respond, does not turn on, or goes into a cyclic reboot. In such cases, a full system reboot can help. If you do not know how to restart Android, read this article.

Soft reset

There are some programs that allow you to work with the device by connecting it to a computer. With their help, you can solve all the problems listed above.

Regawmod rebooter

This program does not need to be installed. After launch, you can choose the action that you want to perform: reboot, shutdown, exit to recovery or to bootloader (bootloader).

Android Debug Bridge

It is best to work with this program through the Windows command line. Therefore, after installing ADB and connecting the device to the PC, open the console and enter the command "adb reboot". This action will lead to a complete reboot of the device.

Hard reset

The hard reset method should be used in cases where a normal reboot does not help or is impossible. Hard reset resets all settings to factory settings. Of course, there will be data loss. There are several ways to perform this action:


To exit into the recovery mode, turn off the device and simultaneously hold down the "home", "turn on" and "volume up" buttons. After the appearance of the corporate logo, the clamping of the buttons can be stopped. Then you need to select wipe data / factory reset and confirm the reset.

USSD request

To restore default settings, you can use the query * # * # 7780 # * # *, and for a hardware reset - * 2767 * 3855 #. Be careful, as the last USSD request deletes the data even from the memory card.
