Ever since its arrival with Nokia 2110, the Nokia tune is the most widely played music or tone of the world. There is no place is the world which has not heard the tone of doesn’t know what it is.

Call me old fashion but after spending few weeks with android devices like Sony Xperia x10 and Sony xperia x10 mini pro, one thing I get to know is about the possibility of screw up like forgetting the Google account password or your lock code or simply mess up the settings !!!
With older Symbian OS based phones being mainstream, its easy to find both online and off line help to hard reset the device to its original factory delivered state. However with android devices like Sony Xperia x10 / x10 mini pro, hard resetting is not that simple.
Why would someone need to hard reset / format or flush the firmware of the device phone ?
- Forgot the Password of Google account ?
- Forgot the password / lock code of your phone it self
- Virus infection (yeah, beware of those malware in android market place)
- Messed up settings or need of cleaning junk.
- User switch (you need to sell it off or give to it to friend of family)
Hard reset or format cleans all data and installed apps, wipes out all the password or lock codes and brings the phone to its original factory settings.
How to format / hard reset / flush the ROM of Sony Xperia x10 / x10 mini pro to restore it back to original factory settings of Android OS ?
