How to restore an Android from a computer

Posted In HOW TO DO! - By DailyAndroidNews on Sunday, January 5th, 2014 With No Comments »

The Android Software Development Kit (SDK, acronym in English) of Google comes with a tool called Android Debug Bridge (ADB, in English). As a tool based on a console, ADB is useful to interact with the physical and emulated Android device from a command line. Using ADB, you can always quickly restore an Android device and when connected to your machine. The ADB and Android SKD are available for Microsoft Windows operating systems, Mac OS X and GNU / Linux.


  1. Open the “Application Drawer” on your Android device, then click “Settings”, “Applications” and “Development”. Squeeze the “USB debugging” option to enable it.
  2. Run the command prompt or terminal window, depending on your development environment. Go to the location of the binary ADB in your system.
  3. Connect the USB device you want to restore your machine and remove all other USB devices connected.
  4. Type “adb-d reboot” to reboot the device, or “adb-d reboot recovery” to start in recovery mode and do a factory data restore.
  5. Use the physical buttons to go to “Clear Data / Factory Reset” and press “OK” to confirm and clear the phone.
