    Default need help with GT-S7560M

    Hi guys, let me start by saying I'm not very tech savvy. I bought a backup phone after my sister misplaced her phone. When her's later turned up she returned the phone I had purchased to me and it was quickly forgotten. Now I need to use it and she doesn't remember what she set the password as. The phone is a GT-S7560M I have googled how to factory reset it and was told to hold the vol up, home, and power keys. When I do this the screen lights up for a moment then goes dark again. if I keep holding and waiting for the samsung logo to appear nothing happens, if I release the buttons when the screen flashes it starts up normally and takes me to the screen where it asks for my password. If I hold the vol down button, home, power, then release when the screen flashes it takes me to a screen that says:

    A custom OS can cause critical problems in a phone and installed applications.

    If you want to download a custom OS, press the volume up key.
    Otherwise, press the volume down key to cancel.

    Volume up: Continue
    Volume down: Cancel (restart phone)

    SInce restarting the phone only takes me back to the password screen I tried pushing volume up which takes me to a screen that says:

    PRODUCT: GT-S7560M

    Do not turn off target!!

    I do not want a custom operating system I just want to factory reset my phone so I can use it. My main phone is broken. Please can anyone advise me on what to do? Is there no way to reset a phone once a custom operating system is on it? If that is so, then is there a way I can just bypass the password my sister put on it so I can use my phone with the custom operating system?
    Thank You,

    Just keep putting in passwords until it fails. Then it will ask you for your gmail login and password. (Or have her put in hers if it was changed to hers.)

    She does't use gmail, if she made one for the set up of this phone she claims to have no recollection of it :-/ GOD I HATE MY SISTER RIGHT NOW!

    Okay, but you'll lose all data on the phone.

    Boot into recovery (volume DOWN key/home/power). When you see the little blue text in the upper left corner of the screen, you can let go of everything.

    When the recovery screen comes up, factory reset the phone.
