    Exclamation How to: Hard reset the Motorola Droid

    Could come in handy for some of you.

    1. Turn the Droid off. If it wont turn off, take the battery out then place it back in.

    2. Open the keyboard and press the X key while pressing and holding Power. The device will power on. Keep holding the buttons down until a yellow triangle appears.

    3. Press the Camera and Volume Up buttons at the same time to get to the menu.

    4. Use the direction pad to the right of the keyboard to select the Format option.
