    Im going to say this first, i have never owned a android phone so i have no idea what to do. anyways,

    So my sister's behold II has some problems where it can't go back to factory reset. She had something on it where you can swipe up to view your list of apps or something. so she decides to just tell me out of nowhere to fix it.

    she said that no matter how many times she tries to factory reset, it doesn't reset.

    firmware 1.6
    kernel 2.6.29 and something that says root@sep-51 #1 or whatever it is

    also, when the phone reboots i get this crazy amount of text that just goes flying across the screen saying E:can't find MISC blah blah.

    i have no idea how to fix this. can someone help? :(

    Ask her what the name of the app was that allows that, then go into the settings and Applications and uninstall it. Shouldn't need to do a factory reset, though it's weird it won't let you.

    she says she doesn't know since her friend (i assume hacked) it for her.

    Rooting makes no difference really.

    Try this:


    1. Power off the phone
    2. Hold down Volume Down + Call + Hangup
    3. When you see the recovery screen press Home to restore.

    What does the top option say? I can't tell.

    Also, could you go into the "Wipe" Menu and tell me what options it gives?

    Usually in the Wipe menu there will be a "Factory Reset" option, if there is try that.

    It sounds like her friend screwed something up when he flashed 1.6 on it, try asking/searching around on xda-developers.com or rootzwiki.com

    Both sites are great Android communities which are rather knowledgeable, so try both of them. I can't really help, this phone is so old seeing how it needs a custom ROM for 1.6

    Did the friend put a custom rom that isn't meant for her phone on there?
