How to Hard Reset LG/Google Nexus 4 (Two Ways)

800 ratings | 316394 views
Here are the steps to hard reset your LG/Google Nexus 4. If you are thinking of selling your phone or it is not responding, then a hard reset may solve your problem. This also works for Google Nexus 5. Note: resetting your device will wipe off all the data, so make sure you backup those data before erasing the device. If the phone is stuck, you could consider a force restart of the Nexus 4.

I broke my nexus 4 screen accidentally and i'm not able to enter homescreen since I have a lock and my screen has become unresponsive. I want to delete all photos before i get it repaired. Will wiping data as shown in the video delete all the photos?

Lol sounds like a nightmare. I once lost my phone at school, and it had all of my porn in it. If someone had found it they would have seen all of it along with my face as background picture because I had it unprotected. lucky my teacher had it behind his desk until I returned the next day to claim it.. Close call.

Hey, the first method from the settings and reset is a soft reset. its not a hard reset. it doesnt make your phone brand new. but does the second method?

I bought a nexus 4 online only to find out after 3 weeks of use it would stop working. Turns out it was blacklisted. I'm told that it can be fixed with a new IMEI number (whatever that means). Do you or any of your subscribers know how to fix this problem. I really need it fixed for my kid who is in College. Thank you.
Eyes of the World (3 years ago)
+Misterr Mann you can still sell it overseas. It is blacklist in your country but not in others
Misterr Mann (3 years ago)
DOn't you think I'd return it if I could? I bought it on Kijiji. Lesson learned but I still need to know how to have it repaired. 
ITJungles (3 years ago)
Depending on your method of purchase, you should return the phone and get your money back. For example if you bought it on eBay there are usually some buyer protection you could use to get the money back.

Excuse me do you know what I can do to my nexus 4 from it turning off randomly it says it has a bug in the operating system?
ITJungles (4 years ago)
Sorry to hear you have had a bad experience with the device. Hope you still have the warranty to fix it free.
Vincent Precourt (4 years ago)
i ask that question on Nexus 4 support forum and this is the first step , next is repair center or your seller if the warranty is running .
ITJungles (4 years ago)
Try to upgrade the software to the latest version. If still not working well then try to reset it.

Thank you. After the "No Command", I kept pressing the power and volume button for a long time. But from the video I saw that you press the power button and then press and release the volume button! That was the key!  Thank you.

I was updating from Google on my phone because it jumped one hour ahead and I didn't know how to fix the clock since it's usually automatically set. l started the download, with this message on the display " android is updating" now the phone is locked in the four colored balls spinning mode every time I turn on the power. After following all your steps, after the reboot system now it still goes to the four colored spinning balls.. is it still trying to finish updating? Can we stop the download and reboot the system?

i want to reset my nexus4 because many apps like we chat are not working properly with kitkat.does reseting the phone also romoves all default google apps which were already installed when i bought the phone......yahoo messenger video chat and some features of we chat like "people nearby" are not working..so want to format once tosee if it fixes the problem.
ITJungles (4 years ago)
Resetting the device, will bring it back to the factory default settings. So what ever was installed when you first purchase the phone, it will be there after the reset. You can root your device and uninstall any other undesired app if you wanted to.

Thanks, I read the steps, but actually seeing someone switch from recovery mode to the wipe data was what I needed.  
ITJungles (4 years ago)
I agreed. Seeing a video is always much better to follow, and you can see what is going on. :).
