Factory data reset Erases all of your personal data from internal phone storage, including information about your Google Account,
any other accounts, your system and application data and settings, and any downloaded applications. Resetting the phone
does not erase any system software updates you’ve downloaded or any files on your microSD card, such as music or photos. If you
reset the phone in this way, you’re prompted to reenter the same kind of information as when you first started Android.

You can manually initiate software update by going to "Home" > "Menu" > "Settings" > "About phone" > "System updates". Press "Restart & Install". Your device will power off and back on and the installation process will begin.

General advice: Before you buy a new cell phone or new tablet, please try the following procedure to repair your device in a software way. First charge your battery, backup your important data if possible and in most cases take out SIM and SD card before doing factory reset. It is impossible to recover your data after doing a hard reset, so online backup is always important. For all of your data, a backup should be done on an external device, hard drive, raid system or media. With or without insurance, if your cell phone lost, damaged or stolen at least your invaluable data is backed up in a safe place. If you are about to sell your phone and you want to wipe your personal data, or if your phone affected with virus you have to do a hard reset. In some cases, you can delete the forgotten password or lock pattern from your device as well. All information is for devices with stock based ROMs. If you are using rooted device, always back up your EFS folder first, containing your IMEI info, etc.! Please also note, that a hard reset operation will not unlock your mobile phone's SIM lock or network lock, but it will remove the unlock pattern, remove the user password or PIN password (NOT the SIM card's 4 digit PIN code). Also note that the firmware version will not be affected in any way, it will not be downgraded, it will remain the same you are using and if you have rooted your device, root privileges remain also unaffected.
