    • July 24, 2015

      Hi there, The Language in Recovery mode is mostly English, then where yo are getting Chinese language. If you are talking about the OS interface language then go to "Settings" and Look for "A" symbol that is for language change. After this you can easily change the language to English.

    Hello brother. First, I love your post; it's very helpful. Second, I like that you have responded to every one who had a query, it's nice to see that.. My problem is, I can not wipe data since I'm using Xolo Q3000 and I have the xolo secure on. When i try to wipe data it says "access denied since xolo secure is on. Set it off before wiping data". Do you know of a way I can overcome this problem? Is there a special software I can use? Please help me bro, I'd really appreciate it. Thank you very much in advance.

      Hi Pascal, Thanks for your kind words, To Disable Xolo Secure go to Settings -> Security -> Device Admins and then disable Xolo secure. ( it would ask for pin to enter). You can call customer support for the pin. Or try inserting your password, if any. We hope it help you.

    Hi, my daughter's Posh S400 hanged after charging and it does not start. I decided to go the easy way and do a hard reset. I charged the battery full, then get to the menu and press "Factory Reset" and it shows the bar filling, then do the "Wipe Cache". they look like htey work because I get sent to the recovery menu. I finally select "Reboot" and nothing happens. I get the logo screen and it hangs there. Do you have any idea if there is something else I can do? I am an RPG, SQL programmer, nothing new or fancy, but I can follow instructions and understand terminology. Can you help? thanks.
