What this operation does is that it would re-initialize the hardware components of the system. Doing so, it would end all the software operations performed on the system. It means any settings you have changed while the course of using the device would be wiped clean. The hard reset is followed by the booting of the system into the firmware. It would re-initialize the rest of the system and inlay restart the operating system. You can follow the below mentioned steps to Hard Reset your F103.

  • The data on the device is wiped and it will reboot as if you are booting the device for the first time.

    Note: Always remeber to create the back up to the data on your device as Factory reset is not a reversible process and hence data cannot be retrived back on your device.
