* To Wipe data/cache, disconnect your phone cable, power off, press volume down + power button until you enter the LG recovery mode, when you see the white text to ask you to confirm wipe phone user data and cache, press power button to confirm (twice). Then the phone will reboot and go to a reset screen with progress bar. Wait until that is done and the phone will reboot with factory setting.
