    Hi.

    I can do a soft reset by going to settings. I have tried doing a hard reset by turning the phone off and holding the bottom volume button down and the power button start it up but I have not been able to get to the factory reset page.

    This will not reset the phone back to JB, and a reset via the menus and stock recovery does the same thing. To go back to JB you will need to flash the stock TOT/KDZ images for your specific variant and desired software release.

    A "hard reset" to most users is holding down the power button for 10-20 seconds or so, equivalent to the same thing on a laptop or other PC, forcing it to reboot. This does not delete or modify any data on the phone, but files open when this occurs could be lost.

    A factory data reset or factory default returns the device to "out of box" status, that can be done in a couple of ways, Golfdriver97's instruction link a few posts up talks about it.

    Restoring or flashing factory images uses a PC and LG Flash software to re-image the entire phone with a factory original software image, often needed if the device becomes unbootable, corrupted, or you need to remove any traces of rooting or other modifications from the phone.

    Try hard reset, then factory reset if that doesn't work.

    Meant to say simulate battery pull by pressing power button until phone reboots.

    You should be able to factory data reset from settings.

    Can also FDR using back buttons when phone is powered off.
