    Why do you need to perform a factory reset? If the display is damaged, a factory reset won't help with anything since the damage is to the hardware, not software.

    Sorry for the extremely late reply. Sometimes the threads don't shoe properly in my "participated" and get moved back so I don't see them..
    Anyway, you can wipe the phone by booting into recovery mode (hold power + volume up + power with the phone off). Then use the volume buttons to navigate to factory reset and use the power button to select the option.
