    Default Factory reset with broken screen

    Hi, I broke the screen of my Nexus1 and I'd like to send it to repair. However, I don't want to send it while my accounts are enabled. So, I need to do a factory reset. Anyone knows how to do it without having any visibility into what's going on on the display?

    Many thanks in advance!

    Was it in debugging mode by any chance before it broke?

    No - the phone was on in regular mode.

    I know you can hard reset it as mentioned here http://www.androidcentral.com/how-ha...ogle-nexus-one

    but there are still a couple of steps there that I'd be unable to see, as the display is 100% black...

    if this was a galaxy phone it would be easy i dont know about an N1.....

    we could try Screen cast but it usually needs to be in debugging mode.
    I need to start getting ready for work so i cant spend alot of time researching this.. So if you can look into screencast. it allows you to display your screen on the computer.

    ok, cool, I'll look into that. I can't do it right now either, but I'll update the thread once I do. Thanks for the help so far.

    I have a Galaxy S4, and my screen won't turn on, before I send it for repair I would like to do a factory reset. Can you help me with that? Please include how many options down the list things are since I can't see what I'm doing.
